Storm Team 27 is monitoring two winter storm systems this week that will impact our region.
Watch the video above for a detailed view of the upcoming winter storm.
The first storm will move away from our region tonight as a cold front passes. The second storm will bring winter mixing.
Keep up to date with the latest forecast and Youngstown weather radar here.
The first storm dropped more rain in the area. Rain showers will become scattered to isolated overnight. See the latest flood alerts here. Gusty wind will be possible with gusts up to 30 mph.

The air will become colder this evening as a cold front rolls over our region. Highs will be back in the 30s on Wednesday.
The second storm will have more cold air to work with throughout the lower Great Lakes and Ohio Valley region. This storm will move later Thursday and last until noon Friday.
The storm will begin with flurries and transition into a developing winter mix through Thursday evening and Friday morning. The mixture will be sleet and freezing rain. Colder air enters behind the system and mixes the winter mix with snow until Friday afternoon.
At this point, it looks like several inches of snow is possible. It is still too early to know the exact accumulation of snow. The first snow cover from the storm could melt as freezing rain and ice pellets fall on it through Thursday evening.
This storm can move north or south bringing more/less snow. The same goes for Freezing Rain and Freezing Mix. It looks like freezing rain will be the biggest problem for this system if it continues on its current path. We will be monitoring the track very closely as we approach the end of the week and will update the forecast.
A colder weekend:
Once we get through both winter storm systems, look for cooler temperatures over the weekend. See the 7-day forecast here.
