Rain will spread into east-central Ohio this evening as a warm front crosses Ohio tonight into Sunday morning. Temperatures across the Valley will warm slightly overnight behind the front so precipitation should remain all rain. Rain showers will continue through the morning before tapering off in the afternoon.
The respite from rain Sunday afternoon will be brief, however. Rain chances will increase again by evening as the system’s cold front moves closer to the region. With temperatures dropping Sunday night, the rain will mix with wet snow, then transition over to all snow Sunday night. Odds for snow showers will then continue into Monday morning. Most of the snow should be out of the region by lunchtime Monday.
The bulk of precipitation with this system will fall as rain locally. Current guidance suggests we can expect one-half to one inch of rain.
While most of the area should see snow Sunday night, it won’t amount to much locally. Expect only a light accumulation locally – less than an inch.
Temperatures will be warm on Sunday. Afternoon highs will reach the mid-50s locally. Monday will be 15° to 20° colder with highs around 40°-42°. Dry conditions will return Tuesday with highs only in the upper-30s. Below-average temperatures will remain the norm through the next work week.
