Forecast update: 4 p.m - Sunday, Feb. 17

Snow, sleet, a light mix and even a little rain will affect the region early with things quieting down overnight and cold conditions.

The worst of it is out of here, but the Winter Weather Advisory has been extended to 1 a.m. There’s still a little freezing drizzle (radar isn’t picking up on it because it’s too small to “see”) which will lead to light glazing in some spots, especially along bridges, overpasses and other elevated surfaces.

Forecast update: 11 a.m. - Sunday, Feb. 17

Radar has been fairly quiet this morning in Columbus with light snow/sleet for areas north of I-70. That is where snow is still currently falling, with some light snow across NW Ohio. We won’t see precipitation become widespread until early afternoon, where we will see a real mixed bag of precipitation. Snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain will all be possible. Areas highlighted under a winter weather advisory will see best chances for freezing rain and snow. Temperatures will warm over the freezing mark later this afternoon allowing for freezing rain to transition back over to rain for most areas along I-70. Snow and freezing rain will hang in a little longer for those north hence why many of these active advisories last through this evening and the early overnight. Precipitation will move out by midnight, with most areas along I-70 seeing a few hundredths of an inch of ice. Areas north of I-70 will see that plus some snow, which still looks to be around an inch with some isolated pockets of a little more for areas further north and northeast. Overall, not a big impact event, but just enough ice and snow potential to make the roads slick in spots. And as a reminder, we will all be back below the freezing mark tonight, which means we’ll see refreezing and leftover slick spots for tomorrow morning.

Highs will top off around 35 today, with a chance for rain later this evening/early tonight. Cloudy and cold overnight with lows back in the 20s.

More clouds and cold conditions on Monday with highs around freezing. Scattered snow flurries will be possible tomorrow, too. Touch warmer with more sun on Tuesday. Another system looks to bring a mixed bag of precipitation to the area on Wednesday.
