Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

High pressure over the Ohio Valley brought lots of sunshine in a dry northwesterly flow. Afternoon readings edged up to near 80 degrees. Some high clouds will spill east tonight, as a weak warm front lifts slowly north. Overnight lows will not be as cool, with a blanket of high clouds north of I-70, but still fall into the comfortable 50s.

A southeast breeze will develop west of high pressure on Sunday, resulting in a warming trend that will push readings into the low 80s, with some passing clouds.

Monday will be the warmest day of the week, with morning readings in the 60s and afternoon temperatures in the mid-80s. Clouds will slowly increase ahead of a storm system in the Upper Midwest. Showers and storms will arrive toward evening and linger on Tuesday, until a cold front pushes east by the afternoon.

The weather will clear on Wednesday, with seasonable upper 70s, before another cold front approaches and creates some showers overnight into Thursday. The weather will be drier at the end of the week, with pleasant temperatures in the mid-70s. Some rain is likely early next weekend
