Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy tonight, with widely scattered showers ending and breezy conditions developing after the passage of a cold front.

High temperatures reached 90 degrees in Columbus this weekend, with a heat index in the mid-90s Sunday afternoon making it feel uncomfortable.

Behind a cold front moving east of the state late tonight, the weather will cool down to more seasonal levels or even below normal early in the week. High pressure will build from the central Plains to the Ohio Valley early in the week, with sunshine and afternoon readings in the pleasant mid- to upper 70s.

As the high shifts east midweek, temperatures will rebound into the upper 80s/low 90s, with increasing humidity. Early indications are for very warm and sticky weather for Red, White & Boom. Scattered showers and storms will be around, becoming more numerous on Saturday.

The latter half of the holiday weekend could turn a little cooler and less humid for the Fourth of July if an expected cold front makes it through the state on Sunday.
