Some snow accumulations are expected in Ohio over the weekend, so that is where this edition of the Point Blank Range Forecasts will be focused. Before we can get into that though, it’s a look way back to the last one.
The forecast for January 21-23 involved low temperatures in Texas. Below are the lowest temperatures recorded over the weekend (Friday night through Sunday) for each of the 5 cities.
Austin: 20 (5:07am Jan 22)
Dallas/Forth Worth: 25 (6:53am Jan 22)
El Paso: 32 (7:16am Jan 22)
Houston: 30 (7:25am Jan 22)
San Antonio: 28 (7:15am Jan 22)
Austin’s 20 degrees was a record for January 22nd, their previous for the date was 23, set in 1985.
Bull’s Eye: All five listed have sub freezing low temperatures this weekend.
On Target: Three or four listed have sub freezing low temperatures this weekend.
Complete Miss: Two or fewer listed have sub freezing low temperatures this weekend.
El Paso’s low was right on freezing, which cost me the Bull’s Eye, instead making the forecast On Target.
Here are the updated results for the season, combined with the Golden Snowball site.

A good weekend for me, and as a result, the average is back up to 1.00, the goal set at the beginning of the season. With 7 forecasts remaining, there still is time to fall back again if I’m not careful.
Now onto this weekend’s outlook, which features the major cities in Ohio (Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Toledo). A system will be moving through the area, but accumulations should be very light. I expect totals to be in the 1-3 inch range over the weekend for most of the state.
Bull’s Eye: All 6 of the Ohio cities have 1-3 inches of snow over the weekend.
On Target: 4 or 5 of the Ohio cities have 1-3 inches of snow over the weekend.
Complete Miss: 3 or fewer of the Ohio cities have 1-3 inches of snow over the weekend.
