Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A meandering upper low over the Great Lakes will keep conditions unseasonably chilly through the weekend, with showers developing this afternoon and lingering into Saturday. Some isolated storms could pop up and bring small hail.

Scattered showers tonight will mix with snowflakes early Saturday, coupled with chilly readings in the 30s in the morning and low 40s in the afternoon–not an ideal start to the weekend. Some sunshine will return Sunday afternoon, mixed with some clouds. Temperatures will top out in the crisp low 50s, after a chilly morning near freezing at dawn.

Warmer weather will make it feel more springlike next week. Rain will return Monday morning, with a lull Tuesday and some sun, though a shower is possible later in the day. Wet weather returns Tuesday night and Wednesday. Highs will rebound to the the low 70s midweek.
