Warm today, freezing Friday: Fickle winter weather continues

Columbus' rollercoaster winter weather is climbing high again today and headed for a fall.

Depending on which source you consult, the high today will near 70 degrees or pass it, and the low Friday will be 26-28 degrees.

Between now and then, it's supposed to rain, then clear, then cool way off.

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City predicts a high of 70 today and a low of 55 degrees tonight with a chance of rain. The high Wednesday's to near 60, with a 70-percent chance of rain and a low that night in the lower 30s.

Expect a sunny day Thursday with about the same highs and lows before things start cooling off Friday, with a high in the mid-50s on a sunny day and a low plunging into the mid- to high 20s that night.
