Summer is quickly wrapping up in Central and Southern Ohio with kids getting ready to head back to school, and the dog days of summer winding down too.
Our normal high temperature has dropped from the mid-summer peak of 85 degrees back down to 84 until August 23rd when the normal high drops to 83 degrees.
There are still a lot of events going on around our area the next few days, and dodging rain will be a skill needed.
What to expect the next few days
Tonight a weak front slides south, and this will allow for patchy fog to form in the morning on Thursday. But drier air will work in for a brief period from mid-morning to mid afternoon (brief right?).
This will keep rain chances down on Thursday, but will ramp them back up again starting Thursday night, and then into the day on Friday.
This will keep a chance of storms in the forecast, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The best chances will be afternoon and early evening hours each day. This will continue until the low eventually moves east out of our area by early next Tuesday.
With the All Ohio Balloon Festival kicking off Thursday evening, keeping a close eye on the radar for the launch will be key on Friday & Saturday.
With the end of both the Hartford Fair (in NW Licking Co) and the Ross county fair, there will be chances to see a bit more rain before they both end. Already both locations had heavier rain showers on Wednesday.
