Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A cold front slipped slipping southeast, representing a dip in humidity this afternoon. Showers that developed ahead of the boundary during the morning have shifted out of the state.

Farther south, a stalled front over Kentucky will continue to be the pathway for disturbances riding east, bringing rounds of showers and storms that have triggered catastrophic flooding around St. Louis, Mo., and this morning in eastern Kentucky.

Sunshine will allow temperatures to warm into the mid-80s. A secondary cold front will arrive tonight, triggering scattered showers. The front will work southeast Friday morning, bringing some additional showers mainly southeast of the Interstate 71 corridor.

A push of drier air will set us up for a nice weekend, with highs in the low 80s and more comfortable humidity. Scattered showers and storms will return on Monday, followed by a blast of heat to start the month of August beginning midweek.
