Rainy Conditions Through Thursday; Colder Temperatures
We’ve seen a decent amount of rain since Sunday (almost an inch in Columbus alone) and we aren’t done yet. An approaching cold front will continue to kick up showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm or two tonight, but the rain will taper off as we get into the morning hours of Wednesday.
The cold front will pass through by Wednesday afternoon dragging much colder air in behind it, but we won’t see drier conditions until Friday as the front is expected to become somewhat stationary to our south allowing for more rain on Thursday. A total of 1-3″ (with locally higher amounts) is possible by Thursday night, so we’ll need to keep a watch out for flash flooding.
The colder air will begin to filter in Wednesday with highs topping out in the upper 50s to low 60s. By Thursday, highs will stall in the mid to upper 40s. We’ll wake up to the low to mid 30s Friday morning and in the upper 20s to low 30s on Saturday morning.
Another cold front will approach Monday, so adding showers back into the forecast Sunday night into Monday.
