Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — In the wake of a stormy period, dry weather will prevail through the holiday weekend and continue next week.

After a chilly morning in the mid-30s, look for high clouds to linger, holding temperatures well below our average high of 60 degrees. Some filtered sunshine should work in with drier air this afternoon, allowing readings to edge upwards into the low to mid-50s.

Skies will gradually clear overnight, with scattered frost toward daybreak.

Expect lots of sunshine and a warming trend during the holiday weekend, with a southerly return flow developing. Warm weather will return next weekend that will feature highs in the 70s, starting on Tuesday.
