High pressure over the upper Ohio Valley moved east Sunday, favoring a moderating trend in temperatures after a frigid 15-day stretch of subfreezing weather in central Oho. Southwest winds brought some moisture early Monday, this time in the form of light rain.
A light mix of rain and a little snow (northeast) will end this morning as drizzle and perhaps a midday snow shower.
After a gray, cold Monday, clouds will linger Tuesday, but skies will brighten in the afternoon. A southwesterly flow of mild air will send the thermometer past 40 degrees Tuesday and Wednesday, flirting with 50 in southern Ohio midweek.
A cold front will arrive Wednesday evening with a few showers, and a return to seasonably cold weather Thursday and Friday (mid-30s) with some sunshine.
Clouds will return Saturday, with a few showers later in the day, and a possible larger wet weather system will impact the state by the end of next weekend.
