Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Get ready for another unseasonably mild week ahead!

A cold front will cross the state Monday that will trigger a stray shower over the eastern part of the state, with a slight cool-down. A clipper system will pass across the northern Great Lakes on Tuesday, resulting in some cloudiness and mild southerly winds. Afternoon temperatures will reach the mid-50s.

A stronger storm coming out of the southwest will track from the central Plains to the northern Great Lakes. Showers will develop on Wednesday. A frontal boundary will push east early Thursday, with gusty westerly winds and a pleasant warm-up to around 70 degrees for the third week in a row in February.

Seasonally cool weather will prevail on Friday, with a chance of light snow overnight.
