Skies turned overcast, with temperatures in the mid- to upper 30s across central Ohio ahead of a weak Alberta clipper system that will pass north of Ohio early tonight, bringing snow showers north of I-70 before midnight. Light accumulations are likely across the northern third of the state, locally a coating to an inch.

Skies will clear toward daybreak, with readings falling back to near freezing. The weather will moderate beginning Tuesday, with more sunshine and highs in the seasonal upper 40s.

High pressure will provide sunshine and calm conditions midweek. A series of northern impulses later in the week will bring some cloudy periods and a southwesterly flow that will warm temperatures into the 50s Thursday and Friday, as a frontal system stalls over the state and then lifts north.

The weekend will turn cooler with a shower possibly Saturday. A stronger system may impact travel at the end of the weekend with a wintry mix early next week and a surge of colder air.
