***WINTER STORM WARNING*** The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Franklin County that will be in effect from 1:00 a.m. EST Friday to 1:00 a.m. EST Saturday for heavy snow. A slow moving cold front stretches from central Pennsylvania through eastern Tennessee to the Louisiana Gulf Coast. As colder air works into central Ohio the rain will change to sleet and then snow during the overnight hours. A brief period of freezing rain is possible because there is a layer of air where the temperature is still above freezing. Once the air above the surface cools to freezing, then the precipitation will change to all snow. A small low pressure system will move along the cold front on Friday afternoon and evening. Although the low will pass southeast of Ohio, it will come close enough to produce significant snow over our area. The snow may be heavy at times during Friday afternoon and 4-8 inches of total accumulation are possible. Eventually cold high pressure to our west will push the front far enough away and the snow will taper off to flurries on Friday night.
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
