Columbus and Central Ohio Weather


Rain and embedded storms this morning north of a warm front deposited 1 to 1.5 inches of rain on southern Ohio, where a flash flood watch is in effect until 11 p.m.

Low pressure will slowly intensify moving across southern Indiana into western Ohio this evening. Additional rounds of showers and a few storms are likely, with heavier rain possible in southern Ohio, before a cold front pushes through the region before midnight. Temperatures will hover around 60 degrees this evening in a warm, moist southerly flow.

Much colder weather returns on Friday, with strong northwesterly winds and a few flurries in the morning. Temperatures will hold nearly steady around the freezing mark, with a wind chill in the low 20s—quite a change.

Temperatures will moderate considerably over the weekend after a cold start, with sunshine and a southerly flow on the western side of high pressure. A few more clouds will be present on Sunday with a weak disturbance.

Showers will return Monday with a weak frontal system. Showers are possible across mainly the southern half of the state on Tuesday. Another wet weather system will bring rain later on Wednesday.
