A weak, ill-defined front will slowly sag just south of I-70 this evening. Moisture has pooled along this feature causing a brief spike in the humidity this afternoon. You will notice the air dry out slightly this evening along with a decrease in cloud cover. No rain is in the forecast this evening and the temperature will be fairly warm in the lower 80s to upper 70s. Expect a temperature of around 70 degrees by 11 p.m.
We will wake up to a good deal of sunshine on Monday morning with just a few clouds thrown in the mix. Temperatures will start out in the middle 60s across all of central Ohio. As the day progresses, southerly winds will bring an increase in the humidity and temperature. Consequently, a few isolated thunderstorms may develop. These will be few and far between and most locations will remain dry. Highs will top out in the upper 80s.
The heat cranks up even further on Tuesday as highs head for the lower 90s. As is typical during a summertime weather pattern, pop up thunderstorms will be possible. A cold front will approach the region late Wednesday. Ahead of it, highs will still be in the lower 90s and scattered storms will become slightly more likely. The best chance for rain right now looks to be Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
Computer model forecasts are indicating that the air mass behind the midweek cold front could be one of the coolest yet! The temperature may have a hard time getting out of the 60s on Friday! This will be a true shot of fall just in time for high school football games and next weekend.
The full 7-day is in the slideshow/list!
