Columbus, Ohio

Back in the early days of this site, it seemed like we kept revisiting two cities in particular: Reno, Nevada and Columbus, Ohio. So I should do pretty well here!

At 1051PM, ET, Columbus was reporting fair skies with a temperature of 32 degrees. There is a brisk north wind rippling through central Ohio tonight, further exasperating a fire threat for parts of the region that missed out on the rain last week. The wind shouldn’t last too much longer, as surface high pressure is building into the Great Lakes for tomorrow. It will be cool with some, but nearly as much, wind.
A clipper moving into the High Plains tonight will reach the Great Lakes in two days time. Ahead of that, expect a bump in temperatures on Friday with the warm front arriving in the area early in the day. Low pressure emerging in the Gulf will also be moving towards the mid-Atlantic Friday, and will attempt to marry the Clipper in the Great Lakes. This will manifest as some stratiform overcast with a bit of light rain into the evening hours. Colder air will wait for the weekend, with the heaviest precipitation also ducking Columbus both north and South.

I’d be surprised if Friday was a super rainy day in Columbus, but I wouldn’t make outdoor plans. The satellite tonight sure is clear. A sign of how quickly things change.
