We’re off to a cooler start to the day than yesterday morning with morning lows in the upper 20s and low 30s. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies today with a chance for a rain/snow mix across southern Ohio. Some of our southern counties are under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for the possibility of 1 to 2 inches of snow. However, temperatures could be just mild enough to allow rain showers to cut down on that accumulating snowfall potential. The precipitation will be along a front that will lift northward throughout the day. As it does, we’ll see the chance for the rain/snow mix in central Ohio this evening. The precipitation will change to rain showers overnight.
Showers will be likely Monday along with the possibility of a few thunderstorms. Highs will top out around 50 degrees before a cold front brings another shot of cooler air. We could see a few light snow showers Monday night and early Tuesday. The middle of the week looks mainly dry but cool with highs in the 30s and low 40s.
Alerts: WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Pike, Scioto and Highland counties from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Inconvenient Weather: A rain/snow mix will be possible this morning and afternoon in southern Ohio. Those chances spread into central Ohio by the evening. Rain showers are likely tonight and tomorrow.
