FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Showers have exited the state to the south and east of Columbus. Northwest wins have picked up behind that front. Temperatures will be in the mid-40s then recover into the low to mid-50s during the day, only to fall back into the mid-40s by sunset.

There will be a chance of more showers later this afternoon. Tonight with more cold air that will move into the Buckeye State there will be a few flurries after midnight. Any accumulations will be less than half and inch. That would be most likely on grassy, natural or elevated surfaces. Temperatures will dip into the mid to upper 20s tonight. It will be cold enough for Freeze Bulletins in southern Ohio. It won’t be warmer here but the Central Ohio growing season hasn’t really begun like in counties close to the Ohio River.

If we make it to midnight with no trace of snow, which seems likely, it will wrap up the first March on record with no snow. We have had as little as a trace in years past but never gone through the windiest month with no trace of flakes.

Tomorrow afternoon there will be a chance of a few flurries. Highs will be in the mid-30s.
Good Friday will be sunny and chilly with highs in the mid to upper 40s. Morning lows will dip into the mid-20s but temperstures recover heading into the weekend. It will be sunny with highs in the 60s, about 68 Easter Sunday with a morning low in the low 40s for sunrise services.

Happy Hump Day!
