A cold front crossed the region this morning bringing a few scattered showers. These showers will persist through the first few hours of the afternoon before a sharp clearing line moves through Columbus. Expect plenty of blue skies for the remainder of the afternoon and an absolutely gorgeous evening. The humidity will be gone and temperatures will fall into the 60s after 7 p.m.
It will be a refreshingly cool start to your Saturday with lows dipping down into the lower 50s! In fact, some outlying areas may even reach the upper 40s early tomorrow morning. High pressure will bring sunny skies and pleasant temperatures topping out in the middle to upper 70s for your Saturday.
On Sunday, the area of high pressure will move to the east and start to setup a return flow from the south. This will gradually increase the humidity to muggy levels by the evening hours. In addition, it will be much warmer with highs in the middle to upper 80s. Skies are expected to remain dry however for the entire day.
A full blast of summer appears in the cards for this upcoming week. We will see the heat, humidity, and storm chances all crank up for the majority of the week. Highs will be in the upper 80s or even around 90 degrees and the dew point will be in the “tropical” feeling category ranging from the upper 60s to lower 70s.
With the increased fuel for storms and a frontal boundary nearby, scattered thunderstorms will be likely almost every day. It is still too early to key in on small, subtle disturbances that may enhance the threat on a couple of the days. Stay with examiner.com for the latest forecast updates. Isolated severe weather is not out of the question especially if any organized clusters of storms develop at any point during the week.
It will not be a washout of a week, but you will want to keep that umbrella handy just in case Mother Nature picks you as her unlucky storm target!
