Special Information:

Temperatures have been below-average in central Ohio for 13 straight days (we had a high of 65 on December 5th), but we’re now tracking warmer air into the region. Look for partly cloudy skies today with highs climbing into them mid 40s. Increasing rain chances head our way late tonight/early Friday morning. Expect a wet pattern for the next few days with rain likely Friday through Sunday along with temperatures into the 50s. The combination of rain and melting snow will likely lead to some flooding issues over the weekend. Colder air returns on Monday along with a slight chance for some light snow. Our chances for a white Christmas look slim at this point.

Alerts: Areal Flood Watch for Coshocton and Muskingum County until 6:00pm Sunday.
Inconvenient Weather: None today. Rain late tonight/Friday morning.
Planning Your Day:  Look for partly to mostly sunny skies this morning with increasing clouds in the afternoon. Highs will top out in the mid 40s for most of us.

Stats:  Averages: 39/26  Record High: 61 (1895)  Record Low: -8 (1884)
