A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 10 p.m. this evening in Columbus. Snow could cause the evening commute to be a little slick. The good thing is that temperatures are near 30 degrees meaning salt will be very effective on the roads. However, some roads could still be quickly coated during any heavier bands of snow or if they have not been treated sufficiently.
The snow will come to end this evening after 5 p.m. Total accumulations of one to two inches will be likely. Some locations could receive between 2 and 3 inches in the heaviest bands of snow.
Expect mainly dry weather for your Tuesday. Highs will top out just above freezing. A weak weather system will slide north of the region Tuesday night. This could bring some light snow to central Ohio after 8 p.m. Any accumulation would be less than half an inch from this snowfall.
The rest of this week will feature a gradual warming trend. We will go from the 30s on Wednesday to the 40s by the end of the week. A rain or snow shower will be possible Thursday night into early Friday morning. Expect dry weather for Friday evening and the first half of the weekend. In fact, Saturday is looking gorgeous with sunshine and highs in the 40s in the forecast!
Rain will move back in by Sunday, but so will bring warmer temperatures. We may make a run for 50 degrees by Sunday afternoon.
