Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

The weather feels like September, but summer heat returns this weekend. Skies were sunny, with a refreshing northeast breeze. Tonight is comfortable for Football Friday Nite. Morning lows will dip into the upper 50s.

High pressure will shift east, promoting a warm southerly flow the remainder of the holiday weekend, with a gradual increase in humidity. We’ll see some puffy clouds on Saturday, but still enjoy plenty of sun. Afternoon temperatures will be in the mid-80s.

Temperatures on Sunday and Labor Day will approach or top 90 degrees, as the humidity slowly rises.

The heat will continue well into next week, with highs in the low 90s and morning readings in the mid- to upper 60s. The next chance for rain will not come until Thursday, when a cold front arrives and takes the edge off the heat by the end of the week.
