Many awoke to a sprinkling of snowflakes this morning across the Buckeye State, and we could see a little more Sunday morning, now that temperatures have taken a tumble. Residual moisture kept skies cloudy through the day with a few sprinkles. Readings struggled to climb above the low 40s, coupled with a gusty west wind (15-20 mph).

Weak high pressure south of the region will bring a few breaks in the clouds and lighter winds this evening. Overnight temperatures will dip into the low 30s Sunday morning.

An Alberta Clipper will zoom southeast across the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes tonight and Sunday, bringing periods of wet snow Sunday, mixed with rain at times in the afternoon, and ending as snow showers early Monday. A light grassy accumulation of up to an inch is possible, though the snow will melt off during the day.

The pattern of clipper systems dropping into the northern tier of states will reinforce the chilly temperatures to start the week. Highs will top out in the upper 30s and low 40s, with morning readings near or a little below freezing. Clouds will increase Monday afternoon and snow showers are possible during the evening ahead of a warm front.

Moderating temperatures and sunshine will return Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will rise back into the low 60s ahead of the next cold front Wednesday afternoon, which will bring rain showers by evening, followed by another surge of chilly air Thursday.
