Special Information:

We’ll see scattered rain showers this afternoon, mainly southeast of Columbus. A cold front working across the state will continue to bring falling temperatures to central Ohio. After a mild start to the day, we’ll end up in the low to mid 40s by this evening.

Arctic air will begin to move into the state behind the cold front tonight into Friday. A wave of low pressure will track along the front Friday bringing with it the threat for rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow. The wintry mix will gradually push southeast through the day Friday with snow likely across most of central Ohio by the afternoon. Snow totals from 2-6 inches will be possible, but will depend on how quickly the precipitation changes to snow. Most precipitation should come to an end by midnight. Temperatures will fall into the teens by Friday night with highs only in the upper 20s on Saturday. Another storm system will arrive in Ohio on Sunday bringing another round of rain, freezing rain and snow.
