We have been fighting through the humidity this week as dew points has hovered around the tropical 70 degree mark with the exception of Wednesday. The high humidity and heat will be in full force for Friday as highs head for the lower 90s. However a strong cold front will bring some welcome relief for the second half of the weekend.
Expect a good deal of sunshine for your Friday after some patchy fog only in the typical fog-prone areas. The heat and humidity will cause some clouds to build by late afternoon and possibly even an isolated storm or two. The majority of storms should occur west of the Tri-State through the day closer to a cold front in the Midwest.
These storms will slowly push southeast late Friday evening and make a run for Cincinnati. This line of showers and storms will move in afternoon midnight and could even bring some gusty winds *if* the line is able to hold together all the way into southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky. If you have plans Friday evening, expect mainly dry but warm weather.
We will start Saturday with some scattered showers and embedded thunderstorms. Thick clouds and showers will keep temperatures below 80 degrees. This will also be thanks to the frontal passage causing a northerly wind flow by the afternoon. Skies should clear out Saturday evening and you will note a rapid drop in humidity towards sunset.
Sunday looks absolutely gorgeous with early fall conditions. Highs will be in the upper 70s with lots of sunshine. Rain does not enter the forecast until Tuesday next week.
There are indications that an even stronger cold front could arrive at the end of next week. This could send us into a below normal temperature regime for a good portion of the middle of the month.
