Afternoon storms usher in cooler air to start the week


A disturbance in the northwesterly flow aloft tracked across the eastern Great Lakes driving a cold front across Ohio earlier in the day, triggering a narrow band of showers and a few storms. The threat of severe weather was east of Ohio across New York and Pennsylvania.

Temperatures rebounded after the rain back to the upper 70s, with less humid air filtering in this evening and clearing skies behind the front. Overnight lows will dip down into the comfortable upper 50s.

The passage of the cold front will reinforce a comfortable flow of dry air to begin the first week of August, as high pressure builds into the region.

The humidity will begin to rise midweek ahead of weak low pressure in the Midwest, bringing an opportunity for scattered showers and storms Wednesday and Thursday. Summer heat will return next weekend.
