Cold sunshine was sufficient to melt much of the morning snow cover, which ranged from a dusting south of Columbus to an inch in the northern portion of the city, and 1-2 inches farther north. The highest total was 2.5 north of Bellefontaine in Logan County. 

Watch out this evening for refreezing as the temperature falls into the teens from the low to mid-20s, but with the loss of insolation the pavement will cool quickly by sunset.

A rain/snow mix will develop Monday, but temperatures will rise into the upper 30s and low 40s, so no travel problems are expected in central Ohio. Monday night the moisture will switch back to snow between 9 p.m. and midnight, though accumulations again will an inch or less.

Dangerously cold air and wind chill values are expected by early Wednesday and the arctic floodgates open. Daytime temperatues will struggle rise above zero and the wind chill will range from -20 to -30, and even lower in northern Ohio.
