Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

In the wake of stormy conditions last week, beautiful weather arrived for the holiday weekend.

After a chilly Easter morning in the mid-30s, we enjoyed abundant sunshine. Afternoon temperatures nudged above the average high of 60 degrees. Tonight will be clear and chilly, with lows dipping into the mid-30s, and scattered frost in low-lying areas.

High pressure will shift farther east on Monday and linger over the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic, providing a light southerly flow. Temperatures will warm to near 70 degrees, and continuing rising through the week, as a broad ridge of high pressure aloft expands over the middle of the country.

A weak front will bring some high cloudiness Monday evening into early Tuesday, but the front will wash out.

Expect dry and unseasonably warm weather to continue all week, with highs ranging through the 70s, even touching 80 degrees at the end of the week, under mainly sunny skies.

Low pressure developing along the Gulf Coast will eventually drift northeastward, bringing a chance of showers at the end of next weekend.
