Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

High pressure over New England has provided limited sunshine, filtered by high clouds, and a light easterly breeze. A few light showers will drift across the southern part of the state overnight, associated with an upper-level low over eastern Tennessee pulling moisture northwest around a coastal disturbance in North Carolina.

A few pop-up showers could develop on Memorial Day, but overall, the weather looks to be excellent for outdoor plans. Temperatures will edge into the low 80s, with a mix of clouds and sunshine.

The upper system will gradually move off to the east, with some lingering clouds on Tuesday, and a slight chance for an afternoon shower.

The warmup continues through the week, bringing summerlike temperatures and mainly sunny skies, with highs reaching the mid- to upper 80s, about 5 to 10 degrees above normal.

No rain is expected currently for the start of the Memorial Tournament, although a few showers or a storm could pop up on Saturday ahead of a cold front dropping south from the Great Lakes.
