A stationary frontal boundary will remain in place across southern Ohio today as waves of low pressure ripple eastward along it. Precipitation associated with these waves will remain south of the area today. However, low level moisture across our area will support cloudy skies and a few flurries or some spotty drizzle today.
It will be chilly for outdoor St. Patrick’s Day activities with highs this afternoon in the mid 30s.
Tonight, low pressure will begin to organize across the lower Ohio Valley. The stationary front will begin to lift northward as a warm front overnight, with precipitation spreading northward into northeastern Ohio well after midnight. It will be cold enough at the surface to support a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain with some light snow and ice accumulations possible before tomorrow morning’s commute.
Lows tonight will dip into the mid 20s.
On Monday, a wintry mix of precipitation during the morning will change over to all rain by mid day as the warm front lifts northward across the area. Highs will top out around 40 degrees.
Monday night, a cold front will sweep across the area from the west. Showers are likely through the evening hours ahead of the front. Once the front passes to our east, colder air will spread across the region changing any left over rain showers to snow showers.
Lows Monday night will fall to the upper 20s.
Tuesday will be mostly cloudy and chilly with scattered snow showers. Highs will only reach the low to mid 30s.
