This Evening:    Clearing skies, turning colder.
Tonight:    Becoming mostly clear. Quite cold. Low: 7
Tomorrow:    Partly to mostly sunny. Cold. High: 17
Tuesday    Mostly sunny. Still cold. High: 16

Special Information:
    More arctic air will settle into the state tonight as high pressure moves overhead. This will allow skies to clear and temperatures to drop quickly after dark. With fresh snow on the ground, temperatures will likely drop into the single digits overnight with a few areas near zero. Quiet and cold weather will start the week with partly to mostly clear skies expected Monday through Wednesday. High temperatures will only make it into the teens Monday and Tuesday with overnight lows ranging from 5 below to 5 above zero.
   A storm system developing along the Gulf Coast Wednesday and Thursday will likely stay to the southeast of Ohio with just some increase in clouds expected. Temperatures will moderate into the mid to upper 30’s. As the East Coast storm moves by, colder air will filter back into Ohio on Friday. A clipper-type system is also expected to move through Friday and another one on Saturday. Both will bring the chance for snow back into central Ohio.

Alerts :  NONE
                                                                                                                                          
Inconvenient Weather:  Skies will clear tonight as another blast of colder, arctic air arrives. Temperatures will fall back into the single digits late tonight. Any melted snow will likely refreeze which may lead to patchy areas of black ice overnight into early Monday. Temperatures will only make it back into the teens for highs on Monday. Wind chill readings may be as cold as 10 below zero Monday morning.

Planning your Day:  Sunshine will return to start the week, however very cold temperatures are expected. Highs will only reach into the middle to upper teens after morning lows in the single digits.
