Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

High pressure pushed off to the east, with a southwesterly flow bringing unseasonably warm weather, after a chilly start to the week. Clouds will gradually increase tonight as moisture advances north ahead of a cold front.

Showers will develop Friday afternoon, with isolated storms, and readings in the mid-70s. The front will stall southeast of the region on Saturday, as a wave of low pressure moves north, resulting in a rainy, chilly day.

Unseasonably cool weather will persist through the remainder of the weekend. A few sprinkles are possible on Sunday, when highs will stay in the 40s.

Next week will start off on the cool side, with patchy frost Monday morning and afternoon readings in the 50s. High pressure will build across the region, keeping skies partly to mostly sunny.

A gradual warmup will follow through midweek.
