Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

HAPPY EASTER / PASSOVER!

Skies will turn partly cloudy this afternoon, with a gusty southwesterly wind (20-35 mph). A Wind Advisory is in effect until 8 p.m. for the northern half of the state, where a few gusts will reach 40 mph. Afternoon highs will approach 70 degrees, but not warm up like again until next Thursday!

A cold front will arrive overnight, accompanied by showers after sundown (8:10 p.m.) — the start of Passover. Skies will remain cloudy Saturday morning, with showers sliding off to the east before midday. Sunshine will return in the afternoon, with a cool northwesterly breeze and readings in the 50s.

We could see frost Easter Sunday morning under fair skies, with light winds under high pressure. Clouds will arrive later in the day, and showers develop late Sunday night into Monday, as a system passes south of the state. A cool northwesterly flow early next week will keep temperatures about 10 degrees below normal, before a midweek warmup.
