Scattered snow showers were forecast for western Ohio, with a mixture of rain and snow changing to snow expected across the east. Accumulations will range from 1 to 2 inches in the northern part of the state to less than an inch elsewhere. Lows will be in the low 30s.
The chance of snow will continue Thursday, especially across the northeast snow belt regions. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s.
A winter weather advisory was in effect during the day for extreme northwest Ohio. Enough cold air was still in place in that area to allow a mixture of rain and snow to fall during the overnight hours.
Enough warm air had entered into the southern part of the state, ahead of a low pressure center over western Kentucky, to keep the precipitation from changing to snow. Early morning temperatures ranged from the mid 30s across the north to around 40 in the south.
The record high temperature for this date at the Columbus weather station was 72 degrees in 1971. the record low temperature was 8 degrees below zero in 1958. Sunset will be at 5:06 p.m. Sunrise Thursday will be at 7:43 a.m.
