Special Information:

Be careful as you hit the roads this morning—areas of dense fog are leading to reduced visibilities across central Ohio. All of the moisture from the snow melt this past week is contributing to that fog formation and could lead to other problems this weekend. We are expecting significant rainfall this evening through Sunday evening, leading to the possibility of flooding in some areas.

After a mild start to the day, the warmth will continue this afternoon with highs in the low 60s. Those temperatures are about 25 to 30 degrees above average for this time of year. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies with a chance for showers late in the day. Rain will be likely tonight into Sunday. Sunday’s highs will top out around 60 degrees early afternoon before a cold front brings falling temperatures into the low 40s and upper 30s by early Sunday evening. It’s possible we could see the rain change to some snow before ending Sunday night, but we are not expecting any significant accumulation.
