Brighter Easter forecast

Local News

A large storm centered over the Alleghenies, with a big high-level low wrapped up over Virginia, will continue to drift northeast and slowly unwind, with lessening wind and less frequent rain. 

Parts of central Ohio have received more than an inch of rain, with a few snowflakes and ice pellets mixed in with a thunderstorm late last night. We count this as our third and ideally final trace of snow since the forsythia bloomed (late) during the closing days of March.

A rainband on the the western edge has persisted in an arc from the Lower Lakes across western Ohio and eastern Indiana. Expect some lingering showers will develop over central Ohio during the overnight hours in a chilly northwest flow on the back side of low pressure.

As the storm departs, low clouds will hang on for Easter Sunday, with clearing limited mostly to western Ohio until later in the day. 

Clouds will thicken again late Monday and Tuesday as a frontal boundary shift southeast, bringing a few showers and storms, but with a warmer southwest flow of air.

Have a great holiday weekend! -Ben
