The weather pattern will be slowly changing over the next seven days. A trough in the jet stream over the eastern U.S. will be replaced by a ridge of high pressure. This means warming temperatures and generally dry weather.
Highs on Monday have reached the low to middle 80s across much of central Ohio. Expect lows to be in the lower to middle 60s for your Tuesday morning. Patchy fog will also be likely in the fog prone valleys. Temperatures will warm a little on Tuesday up to 87 degrees under mostly sunny skies once again.
A weak disturbance in the atmosphere will move overhead on Wednesday. This could trigger a few isolated showers and thunderstorms. Not everyone will get hit, but you will want to take the umbrella out the door in the morning just in case. Highs will be a couple degrees cooler in the middle 80s due to the increase in cloud cover.
A weak cool front will sag south out of the Great Lakes on Thursday. This will keep a slight chance for a shower or storm in our forecast. Highs ahead of the front Thursday afternoon will reach the upper 80s.
That cool front will bring a brief break in the building heat for the end of the week. Highs will fall back into the lower 80s and the humidity will drop out as well. The ridge of high pressure in the atmosphere is forecast to build back even stronger as we head into next week. This means an increase in heat, humidity, and continued dry weather.
