Special Information:

  High pressure will hold strong across the region today, keeping us dry in most locations. There will be just a slight chance for a few sprinkles across the northern third of the state. Southerly breezes will help to boost temperatures today. We’ll see highs ranging from the upper 50s north of Columbus to the mid 60s in the south. The last time we hit 60 degrees in Columbus was on March 11th. An area of low pressure working across the Great Lakes will bring a chance for a few showers our way by late tonight/early Sunday.

 We’ll stay mild Sunday with highs in the mid 60s, but we’ll also keep a chance for scattered showers. It won’t be a complete washout, but you’ll want to keep an umbrella handy for any outdoor activities. We might even hear a few rumbles of thunder in the afternoon and evening. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible for most of next week with highs pushing 70.

Alerts: None
Inconvenient Weather: Breezy at times today with a slight chance for a sprinkle in our northern counties. Rain returns to the forecast tomorrow.
Planning Your Day:  After a cool start, we’ll see partly to mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with highs around 60.
