Special Information:
   High pressure will dominate the weather across central Ohio to start the new week. Winds will turn out of the southwest allowing for warmer temperatures to move in. After a cool night tonight, temperatures will rise into the upper 50's on Monday and near 60 degrees on Tuesday under partly cloudy skies.
   Clouds will increase Tuesday night ahead of a significant storm system moving into the Ohio Valley. While the track of the storm is not certain, a variety of precipitation types will be possible across central Ohio Wednesday. Some accumulating snow will be possible, especially north of I-70 by late Wednesday. Mostly rain is expected in southern Ohio. The storm track will have to be watched as this will determine the area where heavier snow accumulation will be possible.  
   Skies will clear Wednesday night with much colder, arctic air filtering in behind the storm on Thursday. However the cold air won't stick around too long as a warm up with seasonable temperatures return to central Ohio by the end of the week.

Alerts :  NONE
                                                                                                                                          
Inconvenient Weather:  A storm system will bring the threat for rain and snow late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Parts of central Ohio, mainly north of I-70 could receive accumulating snow on Wednesday.

Planning your Day:  Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies are in the forecast to start the week. Much warmer temperatures are expected as highs reach into the upper 50’s with southwesterly breezes.
