A Very Warm Saturday
RECORD HIGHS POSSIBLE TODAY
We can expect variable cloudiness today as daytime highs soar into the mid to upper 80s… well above the norm of 73°. Could we tie a record? The record high for Columbus on this date is 90° set way on back in 1929 during the presidency of Herbert Hoover.
A cold front will pass through our area tomorrow. This could kick up a few isolated showers and maybe even a thunderstorm on Sunday. The front won’t cool us down much with highs remaining well above average in the low to mid 80s.
Monday will stay dry as we transition between two systems. Highs will hit the upper 70s to low 80s. A stronger system is expected to move through Tuesday into Wednesday morning. This one could trigger strong to severe storms Tuesday afternoon into the evening, so we will need to stay weather aware. A few lingering showers are possible Wednesday morning as the cold front pulls away.
The front will bring cooler daytime temperatures 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.
Have a great weekend and stay safe.
