Your Doppler 10 Forecast
This Evening:    Clouds with a few flurries.  
Tonight:    Partly to mostly cloudy.  Watch the roads!  Low 15.
Tomorrow:    Turning partly sunny…still cool.  High 25.
Sunday     Increasing clouds with a wintry mix of freezing rain sleet after sunset.  High 30.

Special Information:
Three things I’m watching for you tonight.  The first is refreezing of the roads after the evening rush.  Be very careful as what may appear to be a wet road is likely going to be an icy road.  

Second… be ready for a very cold night tomorrow night.  Skies will clear during the day Saturday and with 2-4 inches of fresh snow on the ground…the temperature will drop fast.  In fact, I’m forecasting a low in Columbus of 8 degrees Saturday night.   If skies clear enough… we could be even colder in rural areas.

Finally...I’m already tracking the next storm system.  The latest computer models show a wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet moving into Central Ohio after sunset Sunday.  I am concerned this may last several hours Sunday night into Monday morning with the potential for 1/10th to 2/10th of an inch of ice.  That could be enough to glaze roads, but will not cause damage to trees or power lines.

Alerts :  WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Eastern Ohio…but should be lifted shortly.

Inconvenient Weather: Watch for refreezing tonight as temperatures drop into the teens.  Next storm system brings a brief wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet Sunday night.

Planning your Day:  Weekend will be dry and cold.  In fact..lows tomorrow night could drop into the single digits.
