Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

We enjoyed another pleasant day, under sunny skies, with some lingering elevated haze from the Canadian wildfires.

A warming trend will take hold later in the weekend, as high pressure becomes established over West Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic region, initiating a southerly flow of very warm and moderately humid air that will push readings to 90 degrees or higher Sunday and Monday, with partly to mostly sunny skies.

A cold front will slip south Monday evening, bringing the chance for an isolated shower or storm, and slightly cooler and drier air will follow on Tuesday. As the front lifts north as warm front Wednesday, a few showers and storms could develop across the region.

Chances for seeing isolated showers or storms are slight, associated with a few weak disturbances in a west-northwest flow over the top of an expansive heat dome in the Central states. A cold front will make a dent in the heat next weekend, resulting in a cooldown.
