FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Happy Tuesday!

Rain continues this afternoon across Ohio, but our heaviest shower activity is behind us. That heavy rain has left us with a few flood watches and advisories in our southern and southeastern counties. We will see gradual tapering by about mid-afternoon, then we will have some dry time going into the early overnight hours. Temperature-wise, we will be very mild. Looking at highs in the low to middle 60s, which is right near record-breaking. Our record in Columbus is 64° set back in 1950.

This continues our trend of record-breaking temperatures. Yesterday we broke the record for the highest minimum temperature in Columbus at 49°.

Shortly after midnight into Wednesday, more rain looks to arrive as a cold front inches closer to Ohio. This looks like it will bring us more soaking rain at times during the early morning hours, starting to taper around the AM commute. Behind that, we’ll see scattered showers continuing into the afternoon. Highs Wednesday will top out near 60.

For Thursday, temperatures drop as that cold front moves through. We’ll start off in the middle 30s, then rebound to the middle 40s for highs. Still above normal, just cooler than we have been. More shower activity looks to move in later Thursday and into Friday morning, when we could see a light snow showers as well.
