Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Sunshine and seasonable weather finally returned in time to start the weekend off on a positive note. However, some rain and a few storms are likely on Sunday.

High pressure will dominate the weather pattern, after a windy, wet and unseasonably cool start to the month of May. Temperatures will rebound this weekend into the 70s.

Saturday will be dry and mild, with afternoon temperatures reaching the low 70s, with some high cloudiness related to a disturbance passing well to the west.

Another impule diving south around upper-level high pressure in the Central states will bring showers and embedded storms late Saturday night and the first half of the day on Sunday.

Warmer and somehwat humid air will make early next week feel more like early summer. A few showers could pop up on Monday, with a better chance Tuesday ahead of a cold front. Scattered storms are possible both days, with highs in the upper 70s.

High pressure will bring slightly cooler and drier air into Ohio by the middle of the week.
