Persistent snow showers resulted in some slippery areas, with more widespread activity south of I-70 this morning.

Flurries will diminish by early afternoon, as a large, lumbering storm over the northern Great Lakes moves east and high pressure builds in from the west. Temperatures will remain below freezing, under mostly cloudy skies.

The weather will be quiet Monday through Wednesday. The weather will moderate, with highs reaching the mid- to upper 30s and partly to mostly cloudy skies. A dry cold front will slip through state late Tuesday. 

EARLY HOLIDAY STORM

Low pressure will develop along an arctic boundary, presenting multiple concerns and potential major travel problems at the end of the week. If the storm deepens rapidly over the Midwest Thursday, rain (low 40s) will change to snow/snow showers early Friday, with high winds and temperatures falling through the 20s and teens later in the day. 

The storm threat is highly preliminary, but there is a model signal for wind gusts that could top 40 mph, causing blizzard-like conditions in portions of the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. The weather will be frigid through Christmas weekend, with winds tapering but still gusty and wind chills below zero. Daytime readings will only reach the teens to low 20s. 

Since the possible storm is more than five days out, right now this is just something to watch, as the storm track is refined later in the week.

Stay warm! -Ben
