Special Information:
First the snow… now the cold.   Most of Central Ohio has picked up 3-5 inches of snow as of 3PM and little addition accumulation is expected today.   Look for wind speeds to increase tonight causing blowing snow and dangerously cold wind chills.  Tonight’s low will drop to five above with wind chill readings between 5 and 10 below. Next storm system is could be a major storm for us with the potential for heavy snow and very windy weather.   Snow is expected to begin overnight Saturday night and continue through the day Sunday.   The long range computer models are both calling for six or more inches of snow.   Blowing snow Sunday night could lead to near white out conditions.
Then comes the Arctic Blast we have been talking about all week.  Lows will drop to near ten below Monday night with highs near zero on Monday.   This will be the coldest weather Ohio has seen in years.

Alerts :  WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY until 10PM.   WIND CHILL ADVISORY 10PM TO 10AM tomorrow morning.

Inconvenient Weather: Wind chills are the big story tonight and could cause delays for some schools in the morning.

Staffing:  Chris tonight,  Mike tomorrow morning, Chris tomorrow night.
