FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning & happy Sunday!

It’s a frosty start to Easter Sunday ahead of plenty of sunshine and more April showers to start the workweek.

With high pressure in charge across the area, clouds have been clearing out and aiding in dropping temperatures to around the freezing mark. Because of this, a freeze warning remains in effect until 10 a.m.

Sunshine will be in full force today, but temperatures will be slow to increase. We’ll only hit a high around 50 degrees, which is nearly 15 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year.

Overnight, clouds will start to build in ahead of showers as another system moves in from this west. This will bring in the chance for showers as we start the workweek.

Early Monday morning, lows will be in the 30s. This will result in a chilly rain for most of Central Ohio, but areas along and north of I-70 will see a chance for a wintry mix of rain and snow mix. Little to no snow will actually accumulate though thanks to the mix with rain and warmer road surface temperatures.

The chance for showers will continue through the day as a cold front moves across the area. Temperatures will stay on the chilly side and only reach the mid to upper 40s, which is much closer to normal lows for this time of year.

We will see some wrap around moisture from an area of low pressure in the Great Lakes keep around the chance for frost and a few more showers Tuesday morning. Then, drier air will move in. Temperatures will stay below normal on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Despite the next round of rain showers moving in Wednesday night into Thursday, warmer weather will arrive for the end of the week. Showers will wrap up Thursday ahead of high pressure clearing out clouds and helping to boost temperatures Friday & Saturday.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
