Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

We enjoyed a bright, chilly Easter Sunday, after a frosty start, with temperatures in edging back up to 50 degrees. High clouds are moving in tonight ahead of a storm system moving across the Upper Midwest, coupled with a southern disturbance that will bring rain into the region toward daybreak, mixed with snow northwest of Columbus.

Rain and a wintry mix (north), with a light snow accumulation over higher terrain, will taper off in the early afternoon, though showers will return in the evening. Temperatures will run in the 40s, about 20 degrees below average.

A cool northwesterly flow will persist until midweek, with a few early flurries possible Tuesday, along with mostly cloudy skies and another day in the 40s. Frost will develop north and east Wednesday morning. High pressure will shift east of the region, and milder southwesterly winds will bring more seasonal temperatures, with highs near 60.

Showers are likely Wednesday night and early Thursday with a frontal system. Much warmer weather is in store for us next weekend, with highs approaching 80!
