Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

High pressure over the Great Lakes provided a pleasant northwesterly flow, and much lower humidity, under sunny skies all weekend.

A warm front will pass north of the region late tonight, as low pressure moves across southern Canada, accompanied by a band of clouds and possibly a sprinkle in the northeast.

Winds will shift to the southwest Monday, initiating a warming trend, with highs rebounding into the mid-80s. The heat will return for the first official day of summer on Tuesday.

Scattered afternoon storms are likely with a weak cold front Wednesday that will wash out over the Ohio River Valley, prolonging the heat into next weekend.
