Columbus…. it’s not just for Ohio any more.
At 951AM, ET, Columbus was reporting a temperature of 69 degrees with a thunderstorm. The storms were almost at an end in the area for the time being, with a fairly well defined line established along a line from Macon to Andalusia, Alabama, as well as points to the west and south from Andalusia. An upper level low over the Great Lakes had established a cold pool over the heart of the country, while the still warm Gulf had established a convergence zone just inland that was triggering thunderstorms across the region, though heating of the day may actually work to cap convection this afternoon.
As the upper trough gets entrained into a greater mean trough, the cold air advection will begin to increase through the day today, and eventually turn the boundary presently triggering thunderstorms southward and off the coast, bringing in a couple days of seasonable weather with dry air in Columbus.
