FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning and happy Saturday! 

It’s a cold, frosty start to the weekend, but warmer, more seasonal temperatures are on the way along with the next chance for showers. 

Hopefully last night you were able to cover or bring in any plants.  Thanks to light wind, and temperatures falling into the 30s, we’re waking up to areas of frost, and frost advisories in effect until 9 a.m. for most of the area.

More clouds will build in this morning and afternoon, ahead of our next chance for showers.  Temperatures will be warmer than yesterday, but only climb to around 60 degrees, which is about 5 degrees below normal for this time of year.  

While it looks like we’ll stay dry through Ohio State’s spring football game, it will be on the cool side with temperatures staying in the 50s.  By later this afternoon, showers will start to move in from the southwest and become more scattered by the evening.  Rainfall amounts will stay light and total less than 1/10″.  

Tonight, the few showers that moved into the area will taper off and we’ll be left with a most cloudy sky.  Temperatures will be on the chilly side, falling near 40 degrees.  This still leaves open the chance for frost, so make sure that you are keeping plants inside or covered.  

After a cool start, a partly sunny sky returns to the forecast tomorrow as temperatures slowly climb to the low 60s. Like today, the chance for a few showers will increase in the afternoon.

Monday will be the warmest day of the week.  A mostly sunny sky will help boost temperatures into the mid 60s, which is right in line with normal for this time of year.  

A cold front will move through the area on Tuesday.  This will put an end to a slow warming trend, and will bring back the chance for showers.  As lows fall into the 30s Tuesday night, we could even see a few wet snowflakes mix in with a chilly rain. 

Chillier weather returns on Wednesday. We’ll start the day with chilly temperatures falling down to the 30s, then highs only climbing to the upper 40s to around 50 degrees. 

Have a great weekend!
