A Taste of Summer Weather
RECORD HIGHS POSSIBLE SATURDAY
High pressure is shifting away from the region allowing for southwest flow to bring more moisture up into the area. This brings the opportunity for patchy fog in the morning. Although we could see a good bit of cloudiness on Saturday ahead of another surface front, rain chances will be low. The main story for Saturday will be the summer-like heat. The record high for Columbus on 3/28 is 90 degrees set way back in 1929. We will definitely have a shot at that.
A cold front will begin passing through our area on Sunday. This could trigger a few isolated showers and maybe even a thunderstorm especially to our north. The front won’t cool us down much with highs remaining well above average in the low to mid 80s.
After a dry day on Monday with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s, another system (this one stronger) is expected to push through Tuesday into Wednesday morning. We’ll need to keep a close watch as there is potential for strong to severe storms late Tuesday afternoon into the evening. There could be some lingering showers Wednesday morning.
This cold front will cool daytime temperatures down with highs capping off in the mid to upper 70s on Tuesday and the upper 60s to low 70s on Wednesday. Nighttime lows will dip to the upper 40s to mid 50s.
