Gray, chilly weather prevails over Ohio this weekend. A large storm over eastern Canada brought showers Friday night and early Saturday, with clouds lingering through the day and temperatures in the chilly 50s.

A separate wave of showers developed well in advance of a warm front developing to the west of Ohio. Sprinkles will be around this morning, turning into periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms during the afternoon, as the warm front lifts slowly north across the state. Areas west of Columbus will receive 1 to 2 inches of rain.

Expect a lull in the rain later this afternoon through most of the night, as the main focus for lift shifts to near and north of U.S. 30.

Low pressure developing over the southern Plains will move east across northern Missouri to Indiana by Monday morning, and then drift over Ohio during the afternoon. The result will be an extended stretch of wet weather through early Tuesday.

Showers and a few storms will become more widespread late Sunday night and Monday. A cold front will cross the state in the afternoon that could bring rain and a few embedded gusty storms, especially east of I-71.

Temperatures will turn a little milder in the warm sector Sunday evening into early Monday, before cooling off behind the cold front Monday evening.

The weather will be dry with some sun Tuesday and Wednesday, then another wet system will arrive later in the week.
