Ms P,
After reading about the huge pile-up the other day on 80 outside of Pitt due to inclimate weather you are right in trying to get out early. Inclimate weather (snow/ice) on that road with the addition of holiday traffic is not something to take to chance. Have a safe trip and a happy holiday.

hopefully we are going to be heading to Babylon, my sisters and after a few days to East Meadow my parents. Presents all wrapped and just hoping to spend Chrismas with them. I am sure this weather will create problems for a lot of people. But I guess I should be glad that we are here to celebrate and not in Iraq. I will keep that in mind if I tend to get to frantic. I hope some of the Toledo and Cleveland guys will post to let me know what
it is like there now.

We're live approx 45 miles east of Cleveland. It's snowing right now and at a pretty good rate. 6-8" today and another 4-6" Thursday morning. If you're traveling I-80 it may not be that bad as it's not suppose to go that far once you're past the Cleveland area. The path is straight from Cincy to just a little east of Cleveland but not directly north which should help.

My in-laws live near where the I-80 accident was, but they are forecasting all rain in the Youngstown area there for now. After this storm is out of here Thursday morning, lake effect kicks in. I-80 near the OH/PA border shouldn't be affected too much with the lake effect, only the counties that border the lakes.

I would anticipate you'll have some problems near the MI/OH border. The closer you get to Youngstown the better things should be IF they predicted it right.

Have a safe trip and happy holidays.

I live about 15 miles or so North of Youngstown,Ohio.
At around 1:10pm it is 32 and cloudy.
The temerature is expected to drop and calling for 1-3 today and a few more tonight.
Right now the uncertain thing is the possible freezing rain.
Looks like the band is covering the state they say Toledo through Cleveland is getting hit with the snow. So far temps to the east through PA are warmer and only rain.

They do a pretty good job of keeping the Turnpike clear when they know it is comming.
Have a safe trip.

Hi Ms. P,

Just flurries in Toledo right now.
Nothing on the ground yet.

Looks like it's on the way though.

It will snow a few inches later this afternoon and then some more overnight.
