We had our tenth consecutive overcast day in central Ohio Saturday, which appears to be a recent record. Weak systems passing north and south provide little wind to stir the circulation, which trapped low-level moisture at a time when the sun angle is low.
A batch of rain/snow showers crossed the state this morning, with temperatures stuck in the 30s. Things change after by this afternoon.
High pressure in the northern Gulf and low pressure tracking across southern Canada will generate increasing southwesterly winds, which will warm things up dramatically into the 50s and scour out the shallow moisture.
The reprieve from the cloudiness will be short-lived, as a frontal system stalls along the Mississippi/Ohio Valleys, and low pressure waves track northeast Tuesday and Wednesday, with periods of rain and mild weather. Colder air will filter back in behind the front midweek, and rain could end as wet snow.
