After several days of mild temperatures, the first official day of spring – Sunday, March 20th – saw sub-freezing lows in parts of Ohio.

Scattered light snow fell in portions of Central Ohio on Saturday though skies were a mix of sun and clouds Sunday.  The light snow moved through eastern Ohio Sunday.

Sunday’s high was a predicted 43; then an overnight low around 27.  A few clouds were forecast for Monday with the high near 46 and a low Monday night around 35.

The National Weather Service says warmer days are on the way with highs Wednesday and Thursday in the 60s.
