A stationary front over northeastern Ohio this morning will shift slowly southward this afternoon. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely across the area today with the warm and humid air mass in place. Flash flooding will be a threat once again with the slow moving storms.

We will hold on to the threat of showers and thunderstorms tonight and Saturday, but this threat will gradually shift southward with the front. Most of the activity on Saturday will likely be across the southern half of the area.

The front will settle into southern Ohio by Saturday night and Sunday. Most locations will probably be dry through this period, but and isolated storm can not be ruled out.

It will remain warm and humid through the weekend with temperatures averaging a little above normal for late August.

Here is the forecast: For today, partly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms likely. Highs will reach the low to mid 80s. Winds S 5 mph.

Tonight, partly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows will be in the mid 60s. Winds calm.

Saturday, partly cloudy with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm. Highs will reach the low 80s. Winds E 5 mph.

Saturday night, partly cloudy with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm. Lows will be in the mid 60s.

Sunday, partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. Highs will reach the mid 80s.

Extended Analysis: A strong ridge of high pressure will build across the region early next week. Heat and humidity will build with temperatures averaging above normal through Wednesday. We will see a slight chance of an afternoon or evening storm Monday and Tuesday.

By Wednesday, the ridge of high pressure will begin to break down and a cold front will approach from the northwest. Showers and thunderstorms will become increasingly likely, especially by Wednesday afternoon or evening.

Here is the extended forecast: Sunday night, partly cloudy. Lows will be in the mid 60s.
