Special Information:

Low pressure working across the region has been producing rain showers this morning and a few weak thunderstorms. We’ll keep scattered showers around this morning with the best chance for any afternoon showers in extreme southern Ohio. A cold front will bring falling temperatures this afternoon and breezy conditions. Highs will top out in the low to mid 40s for most areas in central Ohio. Southern Ohio could climb into the 50s as the cold front will take a longer time getting there.

We’ll likely stay dry tonight and most of Sunday before another round of showers and thunderstorms heads our way Sunday night into Monday. The middle of next week looks mainly dry but cool with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Alerts: None
Inconvenient Weather: Showers and a few thunderstorms, mainly this morning. Afternoon showers will be possible in southern Ohio.
Planning Your Day:  After a wet start, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with falling temperatures. Most of the showers should be gone in time for the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day parade at 11:00 a.m. It will be breezy and cool for the Columbus Crew home opener with temperatures in the low 40s for the 5:30 p.m. kick-off.
