An upper level low pressure system will bring scattered snow showers and an unseasonable cold airmass to the Ohio Valley today.

Snow showers are possible Monday afternoon with light accumulations on elevated and grassy areas, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. Pavenment temperatures are expected to be too warm for any accumulating snow to last long.

Increasing clouds throughout the day are expected. Highs will be near 40 degrees with gusty winds of 7 to 13 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph expected as well.

Skies will then become mostly clear through the evening hours. Gusty west to northwest winds this afternoon will also trend down as the daytime hours fade this evening, but still likely remain in the 5 to 10 mph range through the night, according to the NWS.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy before gradually turning mostly clear with a slight chance of snow showers before 9 p.m. Overnight lows will drop into the mid-to-upper 20s.

On Tuesday, expect partly sunny skies and breezy conditions with winds gusting from 11 to 16 mph and increasing gusts of up to 25 to 35 mph in the afternoon.

Highs will be near 50 degrees, while lows will fall around 35 degrees Tuesday night.

Tuesday night will be partly cloudy but cold.

Wednesday will be sunny but breezy with a high of 48 degrees, followed by a mostly clear overnight with a low of 25 degrees.

Thursday involves a sunny but mild day with highs in the low 40s. Temperatures will drop down into the lower 30s overnight, leaving behind cold conditions and a mostly overcast night sky.

Rain shower chances pop back up on Friday.
