A slow moving low pressure center will move out of the Upper Midwest into the Ohio Valley today. Ahead of the system along a warm front, the first burst of snow will develop. A second wave of snow will wrap around the backside of the low Tuesday into Wednesday morning. This is where the heaviest snow will fall, along with the strongest wind. Gusts to 40 mph are possible as the low strengthens. By Wednesday afternoon, the low will weaken and push into Canada.
