Columbus weather: Cooler temps for today, Thursday

Get ready for a couple of cool days before a warm and sunny weekend, said WRBL Chief Meteorologist Bob Jeswald.

A front moving through the area has cooler air behind it that will reign in Columbus' highs today and Thursday. Expect sunny skies and a high of 70 today.

Lows will dip to a chilly 40 tonight.

Expect more of the same Thursday. Highs will only get to 69, and there's no rain in sight. Temperatures will settle back in the lower 40s that night.

Highs will reach back into the mid-70s by Friday, when skies will stay clear. Lows will only drop to about 50 that evening.

The weekend looks like it'll be free of rain. Highs for Saturday and Sunday are expected in the low 80s.
