Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A line of locally strong storms ahead of a weak cold front gradually consolidated and developed farther south as expected. The nighttime activity is supported by very moist air fueling the squall line moving across eastern and southern Ohio.

The air behind the front the rest of the week won’t be much cooler, although the humidity will briefly dip Thursday and early Friday.

A few clusters of showers and storms will drop southeast across the Great Lakes into parts of Ohio over the weekend, as the frontal boundary meanders along the northern rim of a heat dome in the central states.
