A Winter Storm Warning has again been posted for the East Liverpool area by the National Weather Service:

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PITTSBURGH HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR SNOW… WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 7 AM TUESDAY TO 7 PM EST WEDNESDAY. THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT.

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE OHIO VALLEY EARLY TUESDAY MORNING.

AS THE STORM MOVES EAST OF THE AREA WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON… BRISK NORTHWESTERLY WINDS WILL BEGIN TO GUST TO 20 TO 30 MPH WITH SNOW SHOWERS CONTINUING. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW TO DEVELOP.

A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR HEAVY SNOW MEANS SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW ARE FORECAST THAT WILL MAKE TRAVEL DANGEROUS AND IMPACT SNOW CLEARING AND POWER RESTORATION EFFORTS. ONLY TRAVEL IN AN EMERGENCY. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL… KEEP AN EXTRA FLASHLIGHT… FOOD… AND WATER IN YOUR VEHICLE IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

The national maps have the area solidly in the 6-12 inch category.  I give up.
