A cold front is passing through Columbus this afternoon and it will bring a drop in the temperature through the day. Expect us to go from the 60s into the 50s quickly this evening and drop well into the 40s by midnight. Lows may dip down into the upper 30s by early Wednesday morning. Isolated frost is possible but widespread frost is not anticipated due to a stiff northwest breeze all night.
We will see plenty of sunshine for your Wednesday but highs will struggle to make it to the 60 degree mark thanks to a chilly air mass in place. Lows will drop down to around 40 degrees once again for Thursday morning.
Winds will turn southerly again on Thursday allowing for a surge into the lower 70s once again. This will be out ahead of another frontal system that will impact the region Thursday night. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely after midnight Thursday night and into Friday morning.
Behind that system, it will remain mild on Friday afternoon as the sun comes out. Expect highs in the middle 70s for your Friday. Going into the weekend, it appears that cooler weather will make an appearance again. Highs are currently forecast to fall back into the 50s with a slight chance for showers both days.
