Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A trough in the Eastern part of the country will keep cooler than average air around. Several disturbances will rotate across the region from the NW over a marginally humid air mass. With daytime heating tomorrow scattered showers and storms will form by pm. Some may have small hail and gusty winds due to the cold upper levels of the atmosphere. Any storms that do from could produce locally heavy rainfall or flash flooding issues due to their slow moving nature. This pattern continues through most of early next week keeping sunshine around mixed with some chances for showers and storms midweek.
Late week appears to warm a bit as the trough begins to flatten out a bit. This however shows no signs of completely letting up. Highs may reach the middle 80s late week but lows continue to drop into the 50s and lower 60s which is unusually cool for this time of year. There are no signs of any August style heat waves in the future.
