Good Afternoon!

Light snow and flurries will develop this afternoon with a fast-moving disturbance, creating areas of slick travel due to cold pavement temperatures, after we started the day with temperatures around zero — and as low as -8 to -16 degrees in eastern portions of our viewing area.

Snow accumulations through early Friday will be limited to a dusting in central Ohio, as energy shifts east to a major snowstorm along the Atlantic Coast early in the weekend.

Temperatures will moderate to the low 30s this evening with a southwesterly wind, before tumbling later tonight behind a cold front that will bring additional flurries, and possibly a little freezing drizzle,.

Clouds and scattered flurries will linger on Friday, and temperatures will hold nearly steady in the low 20s, with a cold northwesterly wind. Clearing skies Friday night will see temperatures plunging again to near zero Saturday morning for the third time in four days.

Cold sunshine and very breezy conditions will prevail Saturday, as readings struggle to reach 20 degrees. Clouds will increase Saturday night, and flurries are possible Sunday morning with a weak disturbance.
Temperatures Sunday will approach 30 degrees in the afternoon.

A milder pattern will develop next week, with highs ranging from the mid-30s Monday to the mid-40s Tuesday and Wednesday, with showers midweek. Look for the next chance for moisture to come in the form of rain showers later in the week.
