Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Low pressure swirling will shift slowly east of the Mid-Atlantic Coast, after bringing several days of windy, wet and chilly March-like weather.

Puffy clouds will stick around, with temperatures edging into the low 60s—still below our normal high of 70 degrees, but we’ll take it. Tonight will bring clearing, with cool morning readings dipping into the low 40s.

The weekend will be more pleasant, with some sunshine, bumping readings back up into the seasonable low 70s.

High pressure over southern Canada will expand southeast, keeping things dry across the region. A disturbance topping the ridge aloft will pass west and south of Ohio on Saturday, with some high cloud cover.

Showers will eventually push into central Ohio on Sunday, with a rumble of thunder possible.

Scattered showers and occasional storms will return early next week with a frontal system.
