Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

The cold front that triggered several rounds of storms Saturday has pushed east of Ohio, with showers moving away around midday, leading to breaks of sunshine. Temperatures were cooler, only near 70 degrees.

Some cloudiness will linger overnight. Low temperatures will dip to near 50 degrees by dawn.

This pattern represents a nice change, as high pressure builds across the Great Lakes into Ontario, Canada. Highs will only reach the upper 60s. Monday will see a mix of clouds and sunshine, as an upper-level disturbance ripples past with an isolated shower.

Clouds will increase Tuesday afternoon, as winds turn southwesterly ahead of a broad upper-level system translating east from the Rockies to the central Plains.

A southerly flow of moist air and a lifting warm front will bring showers and storms Wednesday, with the chance of rain and storms continuing Thursday. Highs will bounce back into the mid-70s.

A cold front will cross the state at the end of the week, which will push the rain to the east. High temperatures will return to seasonal levels next weekend, under mostly sunny skies.
