Bands of rain, heavy at times, with embedded thunderstorms, pushed northeast ahead of low pressure moving across southern Ohio, dropping locally upwards of an inch of rain that caused some minor flooding.

Temperatures have reached the low 50s, then will fall back into the 40s later in the day. Another round of rain will accompany the passage of a frontal boundary through the evening commute.

Much colder air will filter into Ohio tonight, gradually changing linger rain to snow showers, as readings fall back to near freezing early Friday. A light snow accumulation is possible north and west of the I-71 corridor early Friday, with flurries and gusty northwesterly winds.

High pressure will build over the weekend, resulting in decreasing clouds and wind. The weekend will start off bright and seasonably cold, as high pressure builds over the eastern portion of the country. Some cloudiness will develop Sunday ahead of the next weather system that will bring showers later on Monday and continuing Tuesday, accompanied by mild weather.
