St. Patrick’s Day is this coming Monday, but many will be celebrating the holiday this weekend. While temperatures won’t be quite as warm as they were today, we will still feel temperatures on Saturday that will top out in the low to mid 40’s around West Central Ohio.
A cold front will move through Friday night that will bring the possibility of light rain showers or maybe even a flurry to West Central Ohio, but for the most part we will remain dry heading into Saturday.
Here is a look at the hour by hour forecast if you are headed to the Lima Irish Day Parade that begins at noon! It’s looking pretty good, you might just want to bring a jacket.
After a dry Saturday there is the chance for some snow as we head into Sunday. An area of low pressure will move into the Ohio Valley during the day that will come VERY close to effecting us here in West Central Ohio. Here is a look at the placement of the low by Sunday afternoon. Notice by about 3 PM on Sunday this storm WILL bring snow to Southern Indiana and Southern Ohio.
This will ver a CLOSE CALL for West Central Ohio, but I’m pretty confident that this system will miss us just to our South.
Here is a look at where the snow will be falling by late Sunday evening. I’m the possibility of light snow for our counties south of Route 30 heading into Sunday night, but any snow that falls should remain at or below one inch.
As this system moves to our South it will pull down some colder air into West Central Ohio. Under mostly cloudy skies, our highs on Sunday will struggle to break 30 degrees.
Temperatures will stay on the cold side for St. Patrick’s Day on Monday with a return of sunshine and highs in the mid 30’s! Overall, not too bad of a St. Patty’s Day weekend! Have fun and be safe everyone!
