Tonight the rain chances will be lower, but still their nonetheless. Where it is not raining, we are still expecting mostly cloudy skies. Lows tonight will fall to the mid to upper 40s across central Ohio.

The marathon forecast on Sunday may be seen as favorable for runners. We are expecting cloudy skies and cooler conditions. A few spotty sprinkles will help runners as temperatures will be in the low 50s during the race. Sunday’s high temps will only move into the mid 50s in Columbus and vicinity.
