***WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory that will be in effect until 7:00 a.m. EST on Monday morning. The Winter Weather Advisory includes Franklin, Madison and Licking Counties among others. Please note that a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for counties farther north including Union and Delaware where more snow is expected to fall. A low pressure system over northern Kansas will move eastward across the Ohio River Valley. Southerly winds ahead of the low pressure system are pushing moist air over slightly cooler denser air at the surface. The rising motion is generating areas of light snow that will cross our area during the overnight hours. As the low gets closer on Sunday morning, slightly warmer air near the surface will move into parts of Central Ohio. The warmer air will cause the snow to transition to rain during the day. It is possible that we could have a period during the middle of the day when the precipitation becomes more intermittent. Rain is likely to increase on Sunday afternoon as the low moves closer to Ohio. As the low moves east of Ohio on Sunday night, northerly winds will increase and bring colder air, which will cause the rain to transition to snow. The inflow of warmer air on Sunday will cause a north-south gradient of snowfall across our area. Areas farther south will see more rain and lower snowfall totals. Places farther north that stay colder will get mainly snow and have correspondingly higher snowfall totals. Our total snowfall could be in the 2-5 inch range with even higher totals north of our area.
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
