Sunday snow followed by brutal cold

Get ready for another quick hitting snowfall Sunday morning. Moderate to heavy snow will move in between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. and last through most of the morning. A quick, fluffy 1-3 inches will be possible before it wraps up by 1 p.m. With temperatures starting out in the single digits, roads will likely be in very bad shape. Use extra caution if you must drive in the morning. The heaviest amounts will be north of Columbus were 2-4 inches is possible. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for all of central Ohio through 7 a.m. Monday.

Sunday snow
Mike Groenke

Behind the snow tomorrow, a warm front will bring a very brief window of warmer air. Expect temperatures to soar into the 20s and eventually middle 30s by evening. An extremely strong arctic cold front will smash into Ohio after midnight Sunday night. This will bring strong wind gusts over 30 mph and another line of snow squalls that may add up to an inch of snow. This means roads could be slick for the morning commute Monday.

Temperatures will crash into the lower teens by early Monday morning. Just like back on January 6th, the temperature will hold steady and even start to fall through the day on Monday. We will drop below 0 Monday night and gusty west-northwest winds will make it feel like between 0 and -20 A few isolated flurries or snow showers will also be possible throughout the day.

If skies clear and winds calm down somewhat Monday night, we could be in store for the coldest air of the winter. Right now it appears the wind will stay up just a bit, but that means a nasty wind chill. Currently the forecast is calling for a low in the middle negative teens Tuesday morning and wind chill readings easily below -20 or even -30. Schools will likely be closed once again due to the extreme cold.

Highs on Tuesday will struggle to make it above zero degrees! We will plummet back into the negative single digits Wednesday morning and climb to 10 degrees for a high. More light snow and slightly "warmer" weather will return by the end of next week.
