Rain, storms, and some strong to severe storms possible Friday

Finally, some good widespread rain coming

Columbus (WCMH) - Good Thursday Evening,

Today was our last drier day before rain and storms return to the forecast heading into Friday and the weekend.  For the rest of this evening we will have mixed clouds and temps falling back into the 70s by sunset.

Overnight tonight clouds will thin out with lows dropping into the mid to upper 60s.  During the day on Friday we will be watching as a line of storms moves across the region from the west and into Ohio by mid to late morning.  

Temps will climb to the mid to upper 70s during the morning before being rain cooled, and then will climb again in the afternoon before another round of storms returns possibly late.  Highs on Friday will be in the lower 80s.

The chance for strong to severe storms appears to be in the late morning hours and until the early evening, with the best chances southwest of our area.  However, we still could see some storms with gusty winds and hail as well.

A slow moving system will crawl across the area on Saturday and Sunday with multiple chances of rain and storms.  Storms should be weaker over the weekend with highs near 80.

Storms, isolated to scattered will remain in the forecast for the first half of next work week with weak frontal boundaries approaching and moving through the area.  Highs will range generally in the middle 80s next week.
