COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The transition in the overall weather pattern across central Ohio continues Tuesday. Monday will remain uneventful in the daytime, but the night will bring a system that may cause some impacts for the Tuesday morning commute.
A center of low pressure will bring a round of rain showers into parts of central and southern Ohio between about 8 and 10 PM. That low looks to stick just south of the Ohio River, which keeps the bulk of the system far southeast of I-71.
As temperatures drop during the night, rain will begin to mix with snowflakes. That lingers into the overnight and early Tuesday morning hours.
Because road surface temperatures will remain well above freezing, most of the snow that falls will melt fairly quickly. Accumulation is more likely on grassy surfaces.
Snowfall totals will mainly be concentrated to the southeastern portions of central Ohio. Athens County is the spot most likely to see accumulation.
As the system continues to shift away from central Ohio, most of us will simply see a sprinkle or two with a spotty snow flake.
