Road conditions will likely worsen after sunset as temperatures drop back to near 30 degrees.      
Snow will linger into Monday with additional light snow accumulation possible. The snow will taper off to flurries and light snow showers through the evening. Temperatures will hover in the mid 30s Monday afternoon and road conditions should quickly improve.
On and off flurries or snow showers will remain possible Monday night into Tuesday under mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will remain well below seasonable normal through midweek with highs in the upper 30s to near 40 and lows in the mid to upper 20s. A gradual warm up is expected by the end of the week as skies clear.  

Alerts:
Winter Storm Warning now in effect for most counties along I-70 until 8pm Monday.  
Winter Weather Advisories surround the warning area.

WINTER STORM WARNINGS and WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES will be in effect today into Monday as a significant storm heads our way. A mixture of rain, snow and sleet will spread over the region throughout the day. While we could see some accumulating snowfall during the day today, it appears the heaviest snow and most accumulation will hold off until tonight, leading to the potential for some slick roads for the Monday morning commute. Much of central Ohio could see 2 to 4 inches with 4 to 8 inches possible along and northwest of the I-71 corridor. Lower amounts of snow are expected as you head into southern and southeast Ohio.  The snow will taper off through Monday afternoon with just a few flurries possible Monday night into Tuesday. Remember, the exact track and timing of this storm will have a huge impact on precipitation types and snow totals.
