Get your snow snapshots while you can, because this glimpse of winter will be gone in a blink.
The National Weather Service says bands of light to moderate snowfall will keep moving through the Columbus area this afternoon, with accumulations of 2-4 inches, and tonight it will be cold and windy, with a low of 26 degrees and wind gusts up to 30 mph. An overnight snow accumulation of less than half an inch is possible.
But a more springlike day is fast on the way.
Tuesday will be this week's last cold night. Wednesday's high will be in the mid-60s.

And then it just keeps getting warmer: Thursday's high is to be 72; Friday's 76; Saturday's 80.
Sunday brings another change: The beginning of Daylight Savings Time. That won't alter the weather, but it will change the way we await the sunset.
And from there the vernal equinox, the advent of Spring, is but two weeks away, arriving March 20 at 7:44 a.m. EDT.
