Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

In the wake of a cold front Wednesday that ended a string of four straight days in the 70s, temperatures are back on chilly side to wrap up the last week of October.

Morning clouds have thinned out, giving way to sunshine. High temperatures will reach the low 60s, which is exactly normal. A few patchy clouds will linger into the overnight, as readings dip into the upper 30s.

High pressure will move east across the Great Lakes, with a dry northeasterly flow, meaning another great Football Friday Nite. The wind will shift to a southerly direction on Saturday, as the fair-weather system drifts farther east. High temperatures on Saturday will reach the seasonal mid-60s.

A developing storm in the Southern Plains will tap Gulf moisture over the weekend, spreading rain northward on Sunday. Showers will arrive toward evening and linger on Monday. Temperatures will continue to top out in the low to mid-60s early next week, warming to near 70 by midweek.
