FORECAST DISCUSSION:


As high pressure is sliding northeast of Central Ohio more clouds will move into our already cloudy skies.  Though there will be a few breaks of sunshine it will be mainly cloudy this afternoon. That will signal more moisture in the air and that sets us up for a big change tonight. High today will be 34.

Tonight will bring a big change and all kinds of wintry precipitation.  A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for counties northwest from 8pm tonight until 8am tomorow morning.

After sunset a little freezing drizzle or flurries will be possible. That changes to light snow that will mix with freezing rain/drizzle and finally all rain around sunrise as temperatures rise above freezing. Only very light accumulations or a light glaze is likely early. The low will be around 30.

There is still a chance of a little wintry mix early, mainly before sunrise, tomorrow morning. The precipitation will be all rain throughout the day. It will be about a quarter to half inch before noon then light the rest of the day. It will be very breezy with winds around 20 miles per hour and gusts by late afternoon near 40 miles per hour. The high will be in the mid-40s.



Those winds will usher in much colder air. Temperatures Sunday through Tuesday will be in the 20s for highs and only teens for lows.   

Have a great Friday-Fri-YAY!,

Bob
