Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

The weather will be dry early on for the Circleville Pumpkin Show, but plan on showers moving in toward evening.

Clouds will increase ahead of a storm system in the Plains, with moisture arriving later this afternoon in the form of showers. Readings will reach the mid-60s today, which is seasonable.

Low pressure tracking across the Great Lakes on Friday will drag a cold front across Ohio, accompanied by showers and blustery conditions. A few sprinkles may linger during Football Friday Nite.

Clouds and spotty light showers will be around on Saturday for the OSU/Penn State game, with noontime kickoff readings near 50 degrees, under mostly cloudy skies with blustery northwest winds.

Sunday will be dry and cool, with afternoon temperatures in the crisp low to mid-50s. The chilly weather will continue early next week, before a warming trend sets in behind high pressure that will allow temperatures to rebound to seasonable levels by midweek.
