Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight, with scattered showers across the northeastern part of the state associated with a clipper-type system. Expect blustery conditions behind the departing low-pressure area. Morning readings will dip into the low to mid-40s, with breaks in the clouds.

Skies will gradually clear on Sunday from west to east, with scattered clouds and a chilly northwesterly breeze, as high pressure builds down from the Midwest. High temperatures will be a little cooler, in the low to mid-50s.

Monday morning, under clear skies, will bring widespread patchy frost and the first freeze in some areas, with temperatures in the low 30s (upper 20s in the cold spots). The day will be sunny and crisp, with readings in the upper 50s in the afternoon.

Winds will turn southerly on Tuesday as the high moves east, bringing a significant warmup. Readings will reach the low 70s much of the week, with dry conditions. A frontal system will bring increasing clouds on Wednesday, followed by showers later in the week.
