Today will stay mainly dry with weak high pressure overhead. Clouds will break some and even allow for some sunshine today – especially during the morning. Clouds will increase during the afternoon ahead of the next storm system arriving here tonight. Afternoon temperatures locally will reach the upper-30s to low-40s depending on the amount of sun.
A low pressure system will track from the Midwest to Ontario tonight and Monday spreading precipitation into east-central Ohio this evening and Monday. Temperatures initially will support a rain/snow mix during the mid/late afternoon before changing over to wet snow showers this evening. Temperatures will trend upwards as the night progresses allowing snow to transition to rain showers. The timing of the changeover to rain should occur around 8:00 PM/10:00 PM. Rain will continue into Monday.
Locally, we could see around an inch of snowfall this evening before temperatures warm enough for the transition to rain.
EDITED: 1:20 PM | This can be an overachiever and produce a quick hit of wet snow in some locations. Areas of short-duration heavy snowfall have been reported with this system earlier today. Snow accumulation will be heaviest in northern Ohio counties. A majority of any snow that’s accumulated over the last couple of days will likely melt.
With regards to the Monday morning commute, rain will be the primary precip type. The main roads should be wet but some of the less-traveled country roads might be sloppy in places. Rain chances will taper off Monday afternoon north to south with a cold front. Temperatures on Monday will hold fairly steady in the low-40s throughout the day.
