Did you catch the first snowflakes of the season this week? Snow was flying in the air both Wednesday and Thursday! In fact, some locations picked up a light dusting on Wednesday morning before the snow turned back over to rain.
Lows dipped below freezing on Friday morning and we will start out right around the freezing mark once again on Saturday. Because of the hard freeze this morning, the national weather service will no longer be issuing freeze warnings until the spring. Anyone with gardening interests will need to stay on the top of the forecast for temperature information.
If you have plans outdoors on Saturday, you will want to keep the jacket handy. Highs will warm up a little bit compared to the past few days, but only into the middle 50s. Unfortunately strong southwest winds could gust over 30 mph at times making it feel colder. No rain is in the forecast at least. Skies will range from partly to mostly cloudy at times.
Heading to the Buckeyes game on Saturday evening? Kickoff is at 8 p.m. and it will be a chilly game. Temperatures will start off around 50 degrees and end up in the lower 40s by the end of the game. A stiff breeze behind a cold front out of the northwest will make it feel like the lower 40s for most of the game though.
Expect a mix of sun and clouds on Sunday. Highs will be in the lower 50s with lows in the middle 30s. A warm up is in the store for next week as highs head back for the 60s. Along with the warmer weather will come chances for rain as a big storm system being to take shape for the middle of the week.
