Rain, thunder followed by gusty winds

Local News

The latest in a series of strong storms to track from the central Plains to the Great Lakes late Saturday brought rounds of heavy rain and gusty winds, with a few embedded thunderstorms.

The first wave of heavier rain has moved east of the Columbus area, after depositing up to an inch. A second round of showers and storms will cross the region tonight with a cold front, followed by increasingly windy conditions. 

A wind advisory has been extended until 11 a.m. north of I-70 for gusts of 30-40 mph through midday, with early sprinkles and then some clearing.

About 26 AEP customers in Franklin County remain without power after the storm. Most of the outages are in the Ohio State University campus area, according to AEP.Cool, dry weather will settle in early in the workweek, before we enjoy a midweek warmup.

The next system to bring showers will arrive Wednesday night into Thursday, when we will briefly reach the low 60s! Much colder weather will return next weekend.

Sunday: Early clouds, sprinkle, then partly sunny, gusty west wind (30+ mph), mid-40s.

Monday: Mostly sunny, seasonable. High 46 (30-)

Tuesday: Sun, crisp. High 43 (24)

Wednesday: Clouds return. High 53 (29)

Thursday: Showers, windy, mild, some breaks p.m. High 65 (49)

Friday: Partly sunny. High 52 (42)
