FLOOD WARNING in effect through 3 p.m. Thursday.

Flood Warnings have been put in place by the National Weather Service, as rain and snow melts were causing dramatic rises in area streams and creeks. If you see standing water on the roadway, do not drive through it!  Temperatures will cool off Wednesday evening as the rain transitions to snow and sleet.  Accumulations will vary depending on what models you look at.  it is of this forecaster's professional opinion that we could see anywhere between 6 to 10 inches south of Columbus and north of the Ohio River. Heavier pockets could cause locally higher snow levels.  Winds will me mild out of the north.  Some snow could drift onto the roadways, but i think the biggest concern will be ice and overall snowfall, which could result in down tree limbs and power outages.  Snow flurries continues through Thursday bringing anywhere from an additional 1" - 3", but by Thursday night, clouds will begin to decrease, making way for a cold night in the single digits.  Friday and Saturday we can expect sunny skies and gradually warmer temps.
