Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

The weather moderated after a cold start near 20 degrees. Considerable sunshine and a southwesterly flow on the western side of high pressure over the Southeast boosted afternoon readings into the low 40s. High clouds ahead of a weak disturbance will keep temperatures from falling below the low to mid-30s tonight.

Winds will increase on Sunday, raising temperatures back into the mild 50s, with a mix of sun and clouds. An isolated shower will pop up Monday afternoon, as a cold front crosses the state, bringing slightly lower temperatures.

A clipper system will pass north of the Great Lakes early Tuesday, resulting in some cloudiness and a continuation of mild weather. A stronger storm coming out of the southwest will bring a more significant rain event Wednesday. Readings could flirt with 70 degrees again on Thursday, with windy weather, before cold air moves by the weekend.
