Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Skies became increasingly cloudy and foreboding in a humid southerly flow, with scattered showers and heavy thunderstorms rolling through the region repeatedly, dumping locally 1 to 2 inches of rain. Temperatures topped out in the mid-80 before showers cooled readings into the low 70s.

A band of rain and heavier storms will shift east of the U.S. Route 23 corridor and across eastern Ohio this evening, ending around midnight. Overnight temperatures will only fall off into the muggy upper 60s.

There will be a broader opportunity for more showers and storms ahead of a cold front Sunday, with lingering showers on Monday, as a slow-moving upper-level system crosses the Great Lakes.

Skies will clear on Tuesday, as high pressure builds in for the midweek, with seasonally warm temperatures in the mid-80s and plenty of sunshine through the remainder of the workweek.
