Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

High pressure brought another beautiful day, with a distinct warmup in a light southerly flow. The afternoon high of 81 degrees marks the warmest day of the month so far.

High cloudiness will overspread the region ahead of a storm system in the Central states. The arrival of higher humidity on Friday will create chances for scattered showers and isolated storms, some with brief downpours. 

A frontal boundary will sag south on Saturday, serving as a focus for occasional showers and a few storms through early afternoon. There will be a period of dry weather later on Saturday and through most of Mother’s Day. 

A disturbance will eventually push through Sunday night, with showers returning that will linger Monday morning, before the skies clear later in the day.
