Precipitation to continue into weekend

By The Associated Press Published:

Over the southern half of the state, the precipitation was limited to rain, the National Weather Service said.

And the wet conditions were to continue today with sleet and freezing rain mixed in.

Tonight, leftover rain will turn to snow in the south while snow continues in the north, forecasters said. By the time it ends, some parts of northern Ohio could have accumulations of 7-8 inches.

Lows tonight will be 30-35. On Saturday, the mercury won't climb out of the 30s.

The record-high temperature for this date at the Columbus weather station was 74 degrees in 1909 while the record low was 12 in 1986. Sunset tonight will be at 5:16 p.m. and sunrise Saturday at 7:17 a.m.
