Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

Seasonable temperatures and low humidity prevail, as high pressure over the upper Ohio Valley provides lots of sunshine.

After another comfortable night, with lows near 60, the heat is back on this weekend as winds shift to the south, pushing temperatures to 90 degrees Saturday afternoon.

After a couple of beautiful day with seasonably warm temperatures in the mid-80s and cool mornings, the heat is back on this weekend. High pressure will slide east of the region and winds will shift to a southerly flow, pushing temperatures to 90 degrees this afternoon. A stray shower could develop later today over southeast Ohio with an increase in moisture.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy and muggy. A cold front will interact with increasing humidity, triggering scattered showers and storms. 

Behind the cold front, the weather will cool down to more seasonal levels early next week, before heat and humidity return closer to the holiday weekend.
