Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

We are enjoying a brighter Wednesday, after a chilly morning in the 30s, and a great day for the start of the Circleville Pumpkin Show.

High pressure will drift east across the Appalachians, providing a mild southwesterly flow and welcome sunshine. Afternoon temperatures will rebound into the seasonal mid-60s.

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

Low pressure will track across the Great Lakes on Friday, dragging a strong cold front across Ohio, accompanied by showers and blustery conditions to start the weekend

A few light showers will be around on Saturday for the OSU/Penn State game, with noontime kickoff readings near 50 degrees, under mostly cloudy skies. Sunday will be dry and cool. Weekend highs will only reach the mid-50s and morning lows will fall into the upper 30s and low 40s.
