Running updated and more snow on the way

Running has been going VERY well lately.  I had speed work on Thursday, meaning faster pace for a set distance, and ran 3 miles the fastest I have gone since high school.  So things are going very well.
This weekend was great to hang out at home and around Columbus.  We went out to Rooster's on Saturday and we had a blast.
We had more snow overnight and the snow that melted yesterday turned to ice underneath.  Which gave me a great chance to try out the tread on new trail running shoes I found out super clearance. A little snug, but they gripped the ice well.

It was enough ice and snow to cause a lot of schools to delay or close today.
But man! What a great sunrise today! On to the forecast... Very slippery roads for Monday morning. Melting on Sunday left the roads damp and overnight light snow has turned that to ice hidden under some light snow.
Mix of sun & clouds for Monday and staying cold. More clouds later in the day with more light snow overnight with another 1-2" of snow by daybreak Tuesday then mostly cloudy. More snow moves in Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
Southern Ohio will warm up for a wintry mix. Here is a look at the model breakdown...
We are generally looking at 2-5" of snow with this round, however there are two exceptions: 1. areas that see the wintry mix will see less snow and 2. areas near the wintry mix, but stay all snow could see higher snow totals in pockets.  Technically this Low will not form until later tomorrow, so it is hard to pinpoint the exact rain/snow line this far in advance.  We have a few pieces of energy coming together for this to form for Wednesday.

Cold and partly cloudy on Thursday then the models are not consistent heading into the weekend. They do agree that we warm up more into the mid-upper 30s. The American GFS brings in another round of light snow on Friday, but the Euro is keeping most of that system in Southern Michigan. They both back off on the amount of precip on Saturday, but they both bring in rain showers on Sunday. Stay tuned for updates for our midweek system and what is coming next weekend as we nail down more of a definitive outlook. Have a good one!
