Periods of rain accompanied a disturbance moving northeast along a frontal boundary that moved through central Ohio, bringing cooler weather tonight, resulting in patchy fog. Temperatures will fall into the mid-30s, with partial clearing, before clouds fill back in.

New Year’s Day will be mainly cloudy, with a few light showers skipping across the northern part of the state. High pressure will keep the weather fairly quiet through Monday.

Temperatures will edge back toward 50 degrees, 10 degrees above normal but cooler than the past few days.

Monday will begin with a few peeks of sun, but clouds will thicken ahead of the next system coming out of the central Plains that will bring rain Monday night and Tuesday, when temperatures will reach the mid-60s.

Showers will linger on Wednesday behind a cold front, with seasonably chilly weather later next week.
