Another mild day is on tap for Tuesday as highs head near 60 degrees once again. Skies will turn mostly cloudy by the late afternoon hours today in advance of a potent storm system. This area of low pressure will bring rain after midnight tonight. As the low passes by, winds will switch to the north bringing in much colder air. Wind gusts may exceed 35 mph at times during the day on Wednesday which will cause the temperature to absolutely crash. This will change leftover rain to sleet and snow. As of right now, accumulations look to remain under an inch due to a warm ground and the snow occurring during the day. Snow totals of 1-3 inches will be possible well northwest of Columbus closer to Lima. However stay with examiner.com for the latest updates as we fine tune the track for this storm.
Temperatures will crash from the 50s very early Wednesday morning into the teens by the evening hours! Lows could dip into the lower teens by Thursday morning as this next shot of arctic air settles in to place. Luckily it will be short lived as highs head back into the 50s on Friday.
