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.
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.
