This snowstorm sequel, coming soon to a north-central Ohio community near you, is expected to be just as brutal as its predecessor was earlier this week.

Another snowstorm should descend upon the area, estimated to bring 6 inches of additional snow from Sunday afternoon through Monday night.

This could bring the total snowfall in the area to 16 inches this past week, according to the National Weather Service.

“Residents should definitely avoid the outdoors in the coming days,” Cleveland meteorologist Caren Clark said.

Despite the additional snowfall, Clark warned the worst is yet to come.

“We probably won’t even reach zero degrees until the middle of next week,” Clark said. “We have a strong arctic cold front moving toward us starting Sunday night”

Winds are expected to reach at least 20 mph with gusts reaching almost 30 mph as the storm continues into next week.

“These winds are going to be a serious problem, “ Clark said. “We’ll likely have to issue a wind chill advisory”

The temperature, when accounting for wind chill, has the potential to dip below zero and possibly reach -40 degrees, she said.

“People shouldn’t be out on those days with a wind chill like that,” Clark said. “Everyone needs to stay warm.”
