Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A couple of disturbances will rotate around an upper-level low-pressure area in southeastern Canada, generating scattered showers and storms through the evening hours. Storms during peak heating produced gusty winds, small hail, and heavy rain.

A cold front will sag south into central Ohio tonight and stall, before moving north as a warm front on Monday, placing the region in an increasingly hot and muggy air mass, with weak high pressure over the region.

A few storms will develop in the afternoon and evening that could turn severe due to high instability, and a storm complex could bring severe weather and a damaging wind threat later Monday evening in the northern part of the state.

A heat dome will expand across the Midwest and East. Hot and sticky summer will prevail Tuesday through Thursday, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures soaring into the mid-90s. A cold front will approach the region late on Thursday, with storms likely, followed by slightly cooler weather next weekend.
