Sunshine rapidly melted Saturday’s 1 to 2 inches of snow, which brought our seasonal total up to just 11.7 inches (normal for the entire winter is 27 inches) in Columbus.
High pressure extending from Canada across the Great Lakes, will bring another dry day on Monday, with some patchy cloud cover. The temperature will rebound to the seasonal low 50s in the afternoon.
A weak cold front will bring clouds Monday night, with a few showers toward daybreak. Expect mild conditions midweek with a mix of sun and clouds.
The next chance of widespread rain will arrive late Wednesday and continue off and on through Friday, as a series of Pacific disturbances roll out the West and across the southern Plains, pushing mild springlike air northward into the Ohio Valley.
The week could end with a few thunderstorms, before chilly weather returns next weekend.
Spring officially arrives on Thursday (March 19)!
