High pressure, centered in the Northern Plains, is building into the region. That will bring cooler air into Central Ohio as a chilly northwesterly wind. A few light showers or sprinkles will be possible between about Noon and 3pm with a weak disturbance dropping through the region near the peak of daytime heating. The peak will only be around 60. It will be breezy with northwest winds between 10-20mph and gusts as high as 30mph.
A Frost Advisory will be in effect late tonight through 9am tomorrow morning. High pressure will be almost directly over Ohio tonight leading to mainly clear skies and the temperature plunging into the low to mid-30s with patchy frost.
It warms up this weekend with the surface high sliding to the southeast and finally off the east coast. That will mean a warming southerly breeze for Central Ohio. Tomorrow will be a brilliantly sunny day with a high in the mid to upper 60s. Sunday will be mostly sunny and about ten degrees warmer. The high temperature will be in the mid to upper-70s.
After a nice weekend widespread rain showers will move into the region from the southwest Sunday night/Monday morning behind retreating high pressure.
Next a cold front will cross the Ohio Valley northwest to southeast Monday night into Tuesday morning. There will be showers with a chance of thunderstorms Monday and rain more likely on Tuesday. Wet with highs in the low to mid-70s is how we will start next week.
