Models are still in fair agreement that this system will produce a light accumulation event across parts of the state.

Snow has started Sunday for some already, but it is scattered and ahead of the widespread snow we’ll see later.

Snow will become widespread across central Ohio this afternoon and will begin to taper off this evening.

A few flurries will linger into the night as winds pick up and the colder air builds. By the end of the day, Columbus and areas north can expect up to 2” snow.

Areas south will see 1 – 3 inches, with areas far southeast in the 2 – 4” range.

This will be a wet, heavy snow, so allow for extra time if you’re traveling this afternoon and evening.
