Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A warm southerly flow of air beneath a broad upper-level ridge pushed temperatures into the low 80s for the second straight day.

A backdoor cold front moved south of Ohio this evening, setting the stage for a cooldown, sending morning readings falling into the 40s.

A Canadian high-pressure area will settle southward for the remainder of the week, promoting sunshine and pleasant weather, if a little on the cool side. High temperatures will only reach the upper 60s on Thursday and mid-70s Friday.

An upper-level low over the Southeast and coastal disturbance will spin some moisture northwest later in the weekend across the Appalachians, with the possibility of a few showers reaching southeastern Ohio on Sunday and Memorial Day.
