Business owners in Ohio are familiar with how winter weather can reduce foot traffic and decrease sales during colder months. Generally, Ohio winter weather is icy, due to the Arctic air that moves south with the jet stream, bringing freezing temperatures.

Winter Weather Forecast for Ohio 2022-2023

Our 2022-2023 winter predictions for Ohio are predicated on this being the second year for the current La Nina weather pattern. La Nina is a climate pattern that originates in the Pacific Ocean but impacts the global weather forecast.

Typically, La Nina brings with it cooler, wetter conditions. So, Earth Development predictions for the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region temperature outlook are the same. Overall, expect cold winter temperatures with higher amounts of precipitation than normal.

November and December will see fluctuating temperatures and weather patterns, with chances of snow storms and rain throughout the holiday season.

In January, the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes will see cold temps and rainy conditions. In February, expect the same cold winter temperatures and precipitation. More snow is predicted for February than in January.

March 2023 will see lots of rain and snow in the first two weeks of the month, with a possible snow storm in the latter half of the month.

How to Prepare for the 2022-2023 Winter Season in Ohio?

Dayton Ohio Winter Predictions

While temperatures are expected to be slightly higher than usual, the snow will persist, and increased precipitation means more sleet. To mitigate risks wrought by winter weather, you should have snow removal and ice control plan in Cincinnati and other cities.

Stocking up on salt and deicing agents ensures that you can get rid of it as quickly as possible when the snow does arrive. Always store salt in a cool, dry place to stop it from absorbing additional moisture.

Along with this preventative measure, you can also analyze your outdoor space for any weaknesses. Paving cracks, tripping hazards, and potholes are prone to become problem areas. Water that freezes in open crevices expands and widens cracks as seasons go by.

Always try repairing these damages during summer.

Snow also covers tripping hazards. This poses a danger to pedestrians, which is why it's best to remove them before the start of winter.

At Earth Development, we have teams of local snow removal contractors throughout Ohio. Our equipment, workforce, and expertise will prepare your property for all seasons - not just during winter.

That being said, many businesses count on us for pre-treatment and ice control to prevent the formation of ice on driveways and parking lots, as well as for regular snow removal. We’re taking requests for snow removal for the next 2022-2023 season!
