Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A mix of sun and clouds and fall-like temperatures continue for another day. Some clouds will linger through this evening, with a few showers across northern Ohio diminishing around sunset. Highs will reach the mid-70s, and then readings will cool quickly later tonight into the 50s, with a few areas of valley fog.

Wednesday will start off with sunshine, before a few clouds develop with another weak upper-air disturbance passes north of the region. Temperatures will rebound to near 80 degrees.

A large upper-level low in the Midwest will drift slowly across the Midwest, as high pressure slides off to the east of Ohio, creating a light southerly flow for the remainder of the week. The skies will be mostly sunny, despite some high clouds. Afternoon temperatures will reach the low 80s Thursday and Friday. A stray shower is possible Friday afternoon.

The weekend will be seasonably mild, with highs in the upper 70s, and a mix of sun and clouds. A southern system could swipe the eastern part of the state with some moisture on Sunday, joined by the lumbering upper low over the Mississippi Valley, though moisture will be limited. A few showers could develop later Sunday into Monday.
