Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A soggy, chilly start to the weekend has improved, as skies gradually clear through the afternoon behind a cold front. Temperatures will hover in the low to mid-50s with a chilly northwesterly wind. Skies will clear overnight as high pressure builds in, with light winds.

A Freeze Warning is in effect for early Easter Sunday. Morning readings will dip into the upper 20s/low30s. The holiday will be partly cloudy ahead of a northern storm system that will couple with a southern disturbance to bring thickening clouds Sunday night.

Rain will arrive before daybreak on Monday, with unseasonably chilly readings in the mid- to upper 30s. In northern Ohio, a brief mix of wet snow will occur. Rain will taper off in the afternoon, with some clearing and cool temperatures in the low 50s.

A cool northwesterly flow will persist until midweek, keeping readings about 10 degrees below normal, before a return to seasonably warm weather later in the week.
