Winter won't go away: Snow possible on Monday

It seems to be the winter that just won’t quit but some warmer weather is finally returning to central Ohio…for now.

Highs Thursday, Friday and Saturday are forecast to top out in the upper 60s and low to mid-70s in Columbus. The last time we had three-days-in-a-row here that were that warm was back on February 19, 20 and 21.

But we hit our high very early in the day on 2/21 and temperatures tumbled through the rest of it so for all intents and purposes that stretch doesn’t count.

You have to go all the way back to late October if you want to find a pattern like the one headed our way. We had seven-days-in-a-row in the mid-60s to mid-70s.

But it’s Ohio weather and what goes up must come down (or so it seems this winter). You may not want to hear this but another cool down is headed our way early next week.

The changes start arriving later in the day on Saturday. A system will move in and bring rain through the evening and the first half of Sunday. Out behind it is another dose of winter is forecast to hit the Buckeye State.

While it’s too early to pinpoint how much, computer forecast models are hinting at some light snow on Monday morning. If this comes to fruition that would be the first three Mondays in the month of April with snowfall.

Not only could this slow down the Monday morning commute but a lot may find it a bit demoralizing.

Having said that, warmer weather will be here… eventually. I can’t wait.
