Sunday, Feb. 10. 9:45 p.m. — The winter weather advisories for central Ohio have been canceled, but conditions outside are still slick and a wintry mix is possible Sunday night.

Sunday, Feb. 10, 4 p.m. — Snow continues into the mid-evening with a total of up to 2” for most but some spots north of the city could get up to 3” or so. This turns over to a mix in the mid to late evening and even a little freezing rain with a light glaze later.

Sometime in the early hours of the morning, this turns back to rain, but some slick spots will still be possible early on Monday.

Jeff Booth provided latest on Sunday's winter weather:

Sunday, Feb. 10, 8 a.m. — All is quiet and cold this morning across central Ohio but that will not be the case come this afternoon.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for parts of central Ohio from 12 pm Sunday through 1 am Monday.

During this time, snow and a mixed bag of precipitation will push through the region. Snow will be the primary form of precipitation to start, slowly moving its way into the region from the southwest this afternoon.

With the recent cold and dry air in place, this will likely keep precipitation out of the region until this afternoon.

Also, the dry air interacting with the onset of moisture added to the region will lead to some evaporation, allowing for temperatures to and air in the upper parts of the atmosphere to cool. This will keep the primary form of snow precipitation through the afternoon, but eventually, we’ll see rain mix in at times and possibly freezing rain in spots.

Ice accumulations will stay light, generally a few hundredths of an inch. Rain will mix in sooner for those in southern Ohio this afternoon, which will lead to less snow totals by the end of the day.​

Most areas along and north of I-70 will see 1 to 3” of snow by the end of the day. Areas north of I-70 could see 3”+ in more isolated pockets. Areas south of I-70 could still pick up and inch or two, with lesser amounts closer to the Ohio River. Later tonight, we’ll continue to see a mixed bag of precipitation with little to no additional accumulation.

Temperatures will hover around the freezing mark and will warm above freezing into tomorrow morning. Rain will then take over as the main form of precipitation on Monday, where flood watches will go into effect as periods of rain will move across central Ohio through Tuesday. Areas in northern Ohio on Monday could see some snow to start, but will eventually see rain during the day.
