Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

High pressure moved east to New England, shifting winds as winds to the southeast and bringing a warming trend and brilliant blue skies. Afternoon readings topped out in the upper 60s — nearly 10 degrees above average.

Skies will remain clear overnight, but a milder southerly flow will keep lows generally in the mid-40s, after a frosty start Saturday.

A storm in the Southern Plains will spread rain into the lower Ohio Valley on Sunday, weakening as it moves northward. Clouds will increase, with showers arriving toward midnight in central Ohio.

On-and-off light rain will linger on Monday and Tuesday, as low pressure passes west of Ohio, joined by another disturbance. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid-60s to start the week.

Mild and dry weather will Wednesday. High temperatures will push toward 70 degrees later in the week, under mostly sunny skies.
