Special Information:

Cloud cover will increase through the morning ahead of a cold front that will be working across the region today. Light rain will be a possibility, initially this morning across the northern third of the state followed by rain chances spreading into central Ohio by late afternoon. The showers will be scattered—some locations will stay dry. Highs will range from the mid 40s north of Columbus to the low 50s in the south. As colder air works into the region, we could see the rain mixing with some light snow late in the day and tonight. We’re not expecting much, if any, accumulation. High pressure will bring us sunshine on Sunday with highs in the low to mid 40s. We’ll likely stay dry Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 50s before another storm system brings a chance for rain and snow on Wednesday.

Alerts: None
Inconvenient Weather: Chance for scattered light rain showers today and possibly light snow tonight.
Planning Your Day:  Plan on increasing clouds with a chance for a few light rain showers and highs in the mid to upper 40s.
