Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Expect gusty winds along with falling temperatures, with snow showers overnight.

A wintry start to the day brought 1 to 3 inches of wet snow early Wednesday, before changing to rain, as milder air was drawn northward ahead of low pressure moving through the Ohio Valley and into the southern Great Lakes.

Temperatures warmed into the mid-40s, melting the early snow. Renewed snow showers tonight will leave some slick spots during the morning commute, mainly north and west of Columbus.

Additional snow showers are likely on Thursday with an upper level disturbance, leaving a light coating of snow in places, with temperatures in the mid-30s. A weak Alberta clipper will bring snow showers late Friday.

The weekend will begin with mostly cloudy and dry conditions Saturday, and afternoon temperatures reaching the low 40s. A storm arriving from the southwest will bring rain on Sunday, ending as snow showers at night.

Much colder weather will arrive around the middle of next week for the start of February.
