Cold, wet Mother’s Day, frost again the next few mornings


Rain fell heavily at times, with rumbles of thunder, and even some wet snow mixed in across parts of northern Ohio. Rainfall totals of up 1.5 to 2 inches were common north of I-70, covering roads in Crawford County and other low-lying areas near U.S. 30 in northern Ohio.

A flood warning has been issued for the Scioto River at Prospect in Marion County and Circleville in Pickaway County through early Wednesday, as water moves downstream and river levels rise several feet above flood stage. A flood advisory is in effect along the Olentangy River in parts of southern Delaware far northern Franklin Counties in low-lying areas until early Monday.

Low pressure traversed southern Ohio along a warm front, with temperatures stuck in the upper 30s and 40s north of I-70, while reaching the 60s in the southern part of the state. A cold front sliding southeast will drop readings back into the 30s overnight, with a frost advisory for the northern and western counties until 8 a.m.

Dry air will result in some late night clearing, with patchy frost. A frost advisory is in effect for the northern and western parts of the state early Monday morning.

High pressure will build down from Canada early next week, featuring a continuation of unseasonably chilly weather. Dry conditions will prevail through the week, except for a few sprinkles Tuesday in the northeast part of the state. The high will shift east of the Ohio Valley next weekend, bringing a return flow of milder and seasonable weather.
