Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A light southerly flow brought an increase in both the temperature and humidity. Afternoon temperatures averaged in the mid- to upper 80s, with partly cloudy skies.

A weak cold front dropping south triggered a few evening showers, before moving south after sunset. Morning temperatures will fall into the mid-60s, as slightly drier air reaches Ohio.

High pressure will drift across the region Saturday, keeping the weather dry early in the day for the start of Pelotonia. A disturbance will ride a boundary southwest of Ohio later in the afternoon, and a few showers could sneak in from the west toward evening. Temperatures will reach the mid-80s.

Clouds will increase Saturday night ahead of a warm front, with more widespread showers and storms and increasing moisture.

Sunday will start off cloudy, with scattered showers diminishing. Daytime heating may yield some additional late-day storms. Temperatures will top out in the mid-80s.

The next system moving through the Great Lakes Sunday and Monday will trigger showers and storms. Behind a cold front, pleasant weather returns Tuesday and Wednesday.
