Warming up as the rain moves in

See also

A warm front will lift through Columbus on Thursday morning ushering away our recent spell of cold weather. Lows will start out in the upper 20s early in the day but highs will make it all the way up into the middle 50s by the late afternoon!

Expect mostly cloudy skies through the day and even an isolated shower or two by late in the afternoon. Any rain through the early evening hours will remain spotty with the best chance being northwest of Columbus.

As an area of low pressure strengthens to our west, winds will kick up during the afternoon from the southwest gusting as high as 25-30 mph. Rain will become likely after 9 p.m. and persist through much of Thursday night.

The umbrella will still be needed out the door early Friday morning. Showers will taper off by around lunchtime and a cold front will swing through during the middle of the day. Highs will still make it into the middle 50s but temperatures fall into the 30s by the late evening hours.

The front will stall near southern Ohio as another wave of low pressure develops on Saturday. This will make for a cold and wet early spring day. On the backside of that low pressure Saturday afternoon, some leftover rain may change to light snow. No accumulation is expected at this time.

The good news is that warmer weather is ahead! Highs will near 60 on Sunday and possibly even 70 on Monday! So there is light at the end of this cold and wet tunnel.
