Special Information:
   A weak moving storm system will cross the state late tonight bringing with it another round of light snow. Snowfall accumulations across central Ohio overnight through Sunday will range from 1 to 2 inches. However, slightly higher amounts are possible along and north of US Highway 30, across northern Ohio. Light snow will linger into the early afternoon Sunday, and slick roads will be likely. High temperatures Sunday will reach into the upper 20’s.
   Quiet weather is expected to start the work week as another very cold high pressure system moves into the Ohio Valley. This will send temperatures back well below normal Monday and Tuesday with highs in the upper teens to near 20 degrees and overnight lows ranging from the single digits above to single digits below zero Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Another storm system may bring the threat for snow or a mix by the end of next week.

Alerts : NONE
Inconvenient Weather: Light snow will overspread central Ohio after 2am tonight with snowfall accumulations of around 1 to 2 inches possible, especially north of I-70 through midday Sunday. This will create some hazardous travel overnight into Sunday morning before the snow tapers off Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will once again fall to near or below zero Monday night and Tuesday night.

Planning Your Day:  Light snow will start the day Sunday with temperatures in the middle to upper teens. Snowfall amounts will range from 1 to 2 inches near and north of I-70 with lesser amounts expected south. The snow will taper off Sunday afternoon with mostly cloudy skies through the evening. Temperatures will fall into the single digits by Monday morning.
