Snow returns to the Ohio Valley Sunday

A storm system will slide by to our south on Sunday as cold air rushes in from the north. This will create a thin band of accumulating snow on the northern edge of this system.

The good news is that the band of accumulating snow will occur south of the Columbus area. Expect mostly cloudy skies through the day with highs in the middle 30s. It will be much colder than the past two days, so pull the coat back out!

As the storm system slides south of Columbus, some light snow showers or flurries may fall late in the afternoon and evening hours. Patchy areas of a dusting of snow (on grassy surfaces) may occur especially south of Columbus. In general, little to no accumulation is expected.

The cold air pulled down by this storm system will stick around for Monday as highs barely hit 40 degrees. The warmer air does make a comeback next week though! Highs will head back into the 60s on Tuesday as our rollercoaster ride (read: typical March) continues. A series of cold fronts will bring a chance for rain both Wednesday and again late Friday. Luckily no arctic intrusions appear likely next week after Sunday. However do not be surprised if colder weather makes more brief appearances beyond that!
