***WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory that will be in effect until 10:00 p.m. EST on Sunday. The western end of a cold high pressure system centered over New York State is keeping cold air in place at the surface in Ohio. About 5000 to 10,000 feet above the surface, southerly winds are pushing slightly warmer, moist air over the colder air at the surface. The rising motion and a mid-level disturbance are creating a large area of snow that extends from Missouri to Ohio. Periods of snow could produce one to three inches during the overnight hours. The snow will continue on Sunday morning. The southerly flow above the surface could produce enough warming to change the precipitation to a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain for a period on Sunday afternoon. Warmer temperatures over southern Ohio could mean less snow in that part of the state, while colder temperatures farther north will mean more snow. Another one to three inches of snow is possible before it ends on Sunday night. A second cold high pressure system centered over Montana will move eastward. That high pressure system will move across Ohio on Monday and bring more sunshine, but more below normal temperatures. **Record Minimum Temperature** Port Columbus measured a low temperature of 0 degrees on Saturday. That set a record for the minimum temperature on February 28. The previous record for that date was 2 degrees which occurred in 1934. **Record Cold Maximum Temperature** The high temperature measured at Port Columbus on Saturday was 25 degrees, which broke the record for the coldest maximum temperature on February 28. The previous record for that date was 26 degrees which occurred in 1986.
