Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A strong cold front brought bands of gusty showers and a few storms, as low pressure tracks through the northern Great Lakes. Wind gusts ranged as high as 40 to 50 mph with some stronger cells. The rain has shifted east of the Columbus area following frontal passage.

Temperatures tumbled from the mid-70s to the mid-50s, and will slump into the low 40s overnight. Sprinkles are possible and winds will remain blustery, shifting from the west to the northwest.

Much colder air will bring both rain and a few snow showers on Monday, with brisk winds and readings hovering in the low 40s. Clouds will linger Monday night into Tuesday morning, with a stray flurry possible

High pressure will promote dry and more seasonable weather midweek. By Thursday, southwesterly winds will bump temperatures up back into the 70s Thursday, with increasing clouds.

Rain will follow on Friday, as another strong cold front arrives.
