FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning & happy Wednesday!

A warming trend will kick in today & tomorrow ahead of a much cooler end to the week and start to the weekend.

It’s another chilly start to the day. Thanks to the clear sky temperatures quickly feel down to around 40 degrees in Columbus and the mid to upper 30s outside the city, which is about 10 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year.

After a cool start to the day, sunshine will help to boost temperatures to the mid 70s.

A cold front will start to move toward the area on Thursday. This will lead to increasing clouds and a southerly breeze. Thanks to the shift in wind and warmer start to the day, Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with a high in the mid 70s.

Once the cold front moves through late Thursday night, it will lead to a much cooler air filtering in and give us a much cooler end to the week and start of the weekend. Friday and Saturday, highs will only reach the mid to upper 50s, which is well below the near 70 degree average for this time of year. Saturday and Sunday morning will both start with lows in the mid 30s, which could lead to the first widespread chance for frost this season.

Have a great day!
