Overnight: snow showers, temperature decreasing into the mid teens by morning. Thursday: snow showers ending, high in the upper teens, wind northwest 7-17 m.p.h. Thursday night: decreasing cloudiness and near record cold, low near 0. Friday: sunny, high in the mid 20s, wind southwest 5-15 m.p.h.
The Winter Weather Advisory has been cancelled. A low pressure system moving along a cold front over the Appalachian Mountains is bringing snow to the Ohio River Valley. The northern edge of the system is bringing snow showers to our area while the heavier snow falls father south. As the low moves farther east, the snow will end by the middle of the day on Thursday. A large cold high pressure system centered over the Dakotas will move toward the Ohio Valley and bring very cold air. Decreasing cloudiness and the cold high could bring near record minimum temperatures to some locations on Friday morning. The record minimum temperature for Columbus for March 6 is 2 degrees which was set in 1901. As the center of the high moves east of the state southerly winds will gradually bring warmer air back into the area. A slow warming trend could bring temperatures back to near normal by early next week.
We are in the process of building our Tropical Weather Pages. These pages will feature valuable information issued by the National Hurricane Center, Satellite imagery, and more!Go to Tropical Weather
These pages feature links to textual products issued by the Storm Prediction Center and severe weather index charts. We will add model data geared specifically to forecasting for severe weather soon!Go to Severe Weather
