   A cold front which crossed central Ohio early this morning is ushering in unseasonably cool temperatures which will stick around through the first half of next week. High pressure will build into the state tonight allowing for slow clearing on Sunday. However plenty of clouds will stick around with temperatures only climbing into the lower to middle 30’s by the afternoon. Quiet and chilly weather will start the new week.
   A storm system moving out of the Central Plains will cross into the Ohio Valley late Monday night into Tuesday bringing with it a chance for snow showers. Some snow accumulation will be possible from late Monday night through Tuesday before the snow tapers off Tuesday night. Another blast of unseasonably chilly air will filter in behind the storm on Wednesday. The cold air will exit the region as more seasonable temperatures arrive Thursday into Friday.

Alerts : None
