Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Normal late February weather is back, with brisk northwesterly winds, as high pressure builds in from the west and provides some sunshine. Temperatures will stay in the 30s, though edging into the low 40s across the southern part of the state.

Clouds increase overnight, and a minor disturbance could bring snow showers around daybreak, and the potential for a dusting, with lows in the upper 20s. There is the risk of a few slick spots to start the day.

A light wintry mix Saturday morning will end quickly and skies will clear midday. The weather will moderate in the afternoon, with readings reaching the mid- to upper 40s. Clouds will increase on Sunday, with highs in the mid-50s.

The next chance for rain will arrive on Monday, as another potent system comes out of the southwest and heads toward the Great Lakes region. Showers and a few potentially strong storms are likely, with temperatures rising into the 60s.
