SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH UNTIL 2 P.M.

A cluster of showers and storms will drop southeast into central Ohio. Clouds will be around long enough to limit afternoon temperatures to the muggy low to mid-80s, with a late recovery as sunshine returns.

High pressure from the southwest is pumping lots of heat and humidity our way this weekend. An isolated shower or storm is possible early tonight with a warm front lifting north, but much of the remainder of the day will be dry after the initial round of storms. Sunday will be sweltering, with temperatures rising into the low 90s under partly sunny skies. 

A cold front will sag southeast into northern Ohio Sunday night, with an increasing chance for showers and storms continuing into Monday, as the front stalls before pushing south on Tuesday.

A warm front will lift north midweek, posing a threat of additional few showers and storms before a cold front arrives Thursday and brings dry weather in time for next weekend.
