Storm Team 4's David Mazza overnight Sunday into Monday we saw wet snowfall across much of the area, with most totals coming in between 3-6" overnight.  We will continue to see wet snow showers through the day Monday as the big low is moving to the east and some of the snowfall and moisture on the western side of that low moves through our area. 

Highs today will climb a few degrees to around 36. We may see an additional 1-2" of snow through the day today, but with temps above freezing, and the energy from the sun through the clouds, expect most of what falls today to just add to the slush. 

Monday night we will see some light snow showers and lows in the upper 20s. 

On Tuesday, expect mostly cloudy skies, with a few light snow showers on the backside of that low with a northerly flow, highs again in the upper 30s. Wednesday we may see some left over flurries in the northwesterly flow.  By Thursday, high pressure begins to nudge its way in here and will help to clear skies a bit and get temps into the lower 40s. Friday looks to be quite nice as mostly sunny skies will be the rule with highs in the upper 40s. For the holiday weekend we will see a mix of sun and clouds with highs near 50 on Saturday and in the mid 50s on Easter Sunday. Normal high temps by Sunday are near 57, so temps over the next 7 days remain below normal, but improving.

Storm Team 4's David Mazza's Forecast:

Today:  Mainly cloudy, wet snow showers, with light rain, high 36
Tonight:
  Mostly cloudy, light snow showers, low 29
Tuesday:
  Mostly cloudy, light snow showers, high 38
Wednesday:
  Mostly cloudy, flurries, 28/40
Thursday:
  Partly cloudy, 27/43
Friday:
  Mostly sunny, 29/47
Saturday:

ODOT/City of Columbus Crews:

The Ohio Department of Transportation said there were about 125 ODOT snow plows remain on interstates, state routes and US routes in Delaware, Fayette, Franklin, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Pickaway and Union counties as of 6 a.m. Monday.

ODOT officials are closely monitoring the conditions and will adjust crews as needed.

ODOT would like to remind drivers to give the plows room to work on the roadways.

According to the City of Columbus, there were between 43 and 53 Snow Warriors working on Columbus roadways Monday morning. The crews began by applying salt and they will begin plowing once the snow begins to fall.

City officials remind motorists to take the following steps once snow begins to fall:

  • Turn on your headlights
  • Slow down
  • Drive with extra care and leave additional distance between you and the vehicle in front of you
  • Maintain a distance of no less than 100 feet behind a snow plow truck
  • Avoid passing snow plow trucks because the drivers cannot always see a smaller car about to pass
