Ohio Braces For Mid-Winter Storm.

The National Weather Service says between 3 inches and 5 inches of snow could fall in southwest, central, and southeast Ohio beginning tonight through Wednesday. Meteorologist Dahrlie Woodrum says snow will arrive in Central Ohio early Tuesday morning as low pressure moves out of the Southern Great Plains.

“Its these storms that often can wreak havoc across our area this time of year, January and Februrary. You get these low pressure systems approaching from the southwest and they can ultimately tap into some Gulf moisture and you have cold air set in in front of the systems which make conditions conducive to a heavy snowfall.” Says Woodrum.

Woodrum says temperatures in Columbus will remain cold through the week.

“Highs each day through-out the week are not going to be above 30 degrees in Columbus.” The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm watch for areas south of Columbus.
