Arctic blast brings subzero wind chills, snow showers, roads may be slick


Drive carefully this evening. Snow showers are coating roads in bands across parts of central Ohio associated with lake-effect streams coming down from Lake Michigan. Accumulations of powdery snow will be less than an inch, but enough to make it slick in spots.

Winter arrived in full force on the wings of northwesterly winds gusting to 30 mph, causing wind chills to nosedive to zero, as temperatures settled into the teens. Low clouds and windblown flurries will persist tonight.

High pressure from Canada will shift east, with more sunshine Monday and Tuesday and lighter winds, though still quite cold. The high will move east on Wednesday, initiating a southerly return flow of milder air.

A strong storm will lift out of the southern Plains late in the week, accompanied by rain on Friday and Saturday, ending as flurries later in the weekend as seasonably cold air sweeps around a coastal system in the Northeast.
