The passage of a cold front has brought us a little deeper into fall today, with scattered frost north of Columbus thing morning as the thermometer dipped to 32-36 degrees. Sunshine will be filtered by some high, thin clouds as high pressure builds into the region. Afternoon temperatures will hover in the low 50s.
A secondary cold front will move through the state overnight, reinforcing the chilly pattern. Breezy conditions and a few clouds will keep readings Wednesday morning above frost level. We'll see a mix of clouds and sun tomorrow. Widespread frost is likely Thursday morning, after skies clear and the wind dies down.
The weather looks ideal for the Circleville Pumpkin Show that opens tomorrow. A weekend front will bring a few showers heading into Saturday, and then lake-effect sprinkles and snowflakes could be in the air on Sunday for the Columbus Marathon, along with very breezy and unseasonably cold weather.
