A warm front approaching east-central Ohio this morning will cross the region around midday. Until then clouds will hang in there and we may see a few scattered light sprinkles here and there across the Valley. The atmosphere is rather dry and any precipitation will have a tough time making it to the ground before evaporating.
Once the front crosses some of these clouds will break up and we may even see some scattered sunshine this afternoon. Temperatures today will warm to around 50 degrees.
Later this evening low pressure will move across the Great Lakes region and eventually set up shop through Thursday. The morning guidance suggests that temperatures should stay warm enough to keep any precipitation tonight and Wednesday as liquid here in the Valley. Mixed precip and snow will be more likely to our north.
Snow would creep into our forecast Wednesday evening and night as the low moves east and colder air wraps in behind it. With the ground still warm I don’t expect much in the way of accumulating snow. Grassy areas would be the most susceptible to accumulating snow but even then I wouldn’t expect much more than a half inch or so.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND
A few leftover snow showers will be possible first thing Friday but these will clear out toward the afternoon as high pressure nudges in from the west. Dry weather looks to settle in Saturday and Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds through the period. Seasonal temperatures in the low 40s will also highlight the weekend.
