Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

We enjoyed a mild Saturday near 50 degrees in a light southerly flow and some sunshine. Clouds will thicken overnight, with showers developing late and continuing on Sunday, before tapering off in the afternoon with the passage of low pressure to our north and a trailing cold front. Readings will be in the mild 40s.

Colder air will filter into Ohio behind the front Sunday night. A ripple in the flow behind a sagging cold front will bring a few periods of light rain changing to snow, with readings hovering a little above freezing, coupled with a chilly northerly breeze, as winter returns. 

A second disturbance will follow early Tuesday, with a greater likelihood of light snow before dawn creating slippery travel for the morning commute. Temperatures will tumble into the 20s, with lingering flurries during the daylight hours.

Afternoon temperatures later in the week will rebound to seasonal levels (30s), as the cold air moderates. There will be another storm passing to our south on Thursday. If the track turns north, snow or a wintry mix is possible on Groundhog Day.
