Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

High pressure over the southern Appalachians brought mostly sunny skies this weekend, with some high-level clouds, and a mild southerly breeze.

High temperatures peaked at 77 on Sunday, which tied for the warmest day of the month. Evenings have been very pleasant (60s) for late October, and morning lows are in the comfortable upper 40s.

Dry weather is expected to continue for a few more days. A storm in the midsection of the country will lift northeastward from the Southern Plains to the Great Lakes midweek, with a cold front pushing eastward into the Ohio Valley.

Showers and embedded thunderstorms will slowly spread across Ohio Tuesday night and linger for part of the day on Wednesday, cooling the weather to seasonal levels later in the week. Highs will fall back into the low to mid-60s. Dry weather will return Thursday through next weekend.
