High pressure building southeast from Canada is bringing a dry, chilly northerly flow of air. Warmer weather will be suppressed by adip in the jet stream.

Plenty of sunshine and moderating weather will return on Thursday, with a seasonable afternoon, in the mid-70s. 

A cold front will approach from the west on Friday, with a corridor of moisture leading to a few showers during the day and mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will reach the mid- to upper 70s in a southerly flow.

As the front approaches Friday night, a band of rain and a few rumbles of thunder will cross the state. 

Indications are that the rain will end early Saturday morning, before sliding off to the east, which will bode well for the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure. The remainder of the weeked will be dry, with clearing skies and pleasant weather.
