High pressure will continue to keep most of us dry today. An area of low pressure to our south will continue to stream high clouds into the region. We’re tracking a few light rain showers with this system along the Ohio River this morning. It’s possible a few areas south and southwest of Columbus could see a shower or two this morning, but most of us will miss out. Look for temperatures to top out in the low 70s this afternoon.
Skies will become mostly cloudy tonight with the best chance for showers staying across southern Ohio. Scattered showers will be possible Monday and Tuesday with highs in the low to mid 70s. We’ll likely be dry Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the mid 70s. At this point, it looks like we could see scattered showers and a few thunderstorms as we head into the weekend.
Inconvenient Weather: Slight chance for a shower south and southwest of Columbus. The weather should cooperate for OSU Spring Commencement.
Planning Your Day: We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds today with highs in the low 70s.
