Special Information:
    A cold front is moving east of central Ohio this afternoon allowing for cooler temperatures to filter in. Clouds will linger across the area with some light rain or drizzle through the evening. As temperatures fall below freezing overnight, some patchy freezing drizzle or flurries will be possible late. The clouds will linger into early Sunday before some gradual clearing during the afternoon as weak high pressure briefly builds in. Another wave of moisture will lift into Ohio from the south by Monday afternoon bringing another threat for rain. Temperatures will moderate Monday into the middle and upper 40’s before another cold front arrives Tuesday night. That cold front will bring a chance for rain showers changing to snow showers Tuesday night into Wednesday. Much colder air will filter into the state by midweek as temperatures drop back below normal. Another blast of cold air will arrive next weekend.

Alerts : NONE
   
Inconvenient Weather: Patchy areas of light rain and drizzle will be possible tonight. As temperatures drop below freezing after midnight, some patchy freezing drizzle will be possible. While the precipitation will remain light, a few slick spots may be possible by early Sunday.

Planning Your Day:  Some freezing drizzle will be possible early Sunday before skies begin to clear Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will be cooler Sunday with highs near 40 degrees.
