Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A southwesterly flow of mild air around high pressure along the Southeast coast gave way to chilly and damp conditions to start the weekend.

A cold front moved southeast across the state, shifting winds to the north, and ushering in damp and cooler air. The weather this evening will feature some drizzle, and readings in the mid-to-upper 50s.

The cold front will stall near the Ohio River, with low pressure tracking northeast along the boundary, accompanied by periods of rain and a few rumbles of thunder across the southern part of the state.

Showers will taper off Sunday afternoon, with breezy and chilly weather and temperatures in the mid- to upper 50s. A secondary wave will move through the region at night, bringing another round of rain, tapering early Monday.

Temperatures on Monday will hover in the 40s, with a chilly northerly wind and mostly cloudy skies. Drier air will bring some sunshine on Tuesday.

Expect hard freezes each morning starting early Tuesday, with lows in the upper 20s and low 30s. Sunshine will return through the week, with some patchy clouds late Tuesday, and an isolated rain or snow shower overnight.
