50s on Thursday

• Jan 8, 2018 at 6:00 AM

A winter weather advisory was to be in effect until 1 p.m. today. 

A mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow was predicted for the predawn hours. The precipitation was expected to change back to all snow around the morning rush.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.

After several days of frigid weather, a warm-up period began Sunday, when the temperature reached the 20s. Today and Tuesday, that trend continues as highs will be in the 30s. Wednesday will see the mercury reach the 40s, while Thursday will see it stretch into the lower 50s.

But it will go the other way after that.

Friday’s temperatures will range from 39 to 20. By Saturday night, the low will be 10. And Sunday high will be only 18.

It is, after all, winter in Ohio.

Rain or snow is forecast most days this week.

Today, the sun will rise at 7:55:38 a.m. and set at 5:19:27 p.m.

On Tuesday, the sun will rise at 7:55:24 a.m. and set at 5:20:30 p.m.
