Inconvenient Weather:  A quite but cold start to the week is expected with temperatures running nearly 20 degrees below normal. A storm system will spread light snow into central Ohio Monday night into Tuesday. While the track of the storm could change, it currently appears that a coating of snow will be possible in central Ohio with 1-2 inches of snow possible across southern Ohio by Tuesday night.

Planning your Day:  Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies are in the forecast to start the week. Temperatures will remain well below normal with lows in the upper teens to near 20 and highs only in the middle 30’s. Clouds will increase Monday evening with a chance for light snow Monday night.
