Sunday will bring a more clouds across central Ohio. We are continuing with our trend of seasonal temperatures. For the most part it will stay very pleasant outside for any activities. Highs will be in the mid 70s and lows will be in the upper 50s. This will be the last day we will see good bursts of sunshine until the end of the week.

The new week will bring a few changes. Skies will stay mostly cloudy through Monday. No weather related issues are expected for the getting the kids on the bus or for the morning drive into work. There will be the off chance for a sprinkle or two, but that will be in the later part of the evening. Highs will stay in the mid 70s. Lows will only fall to around 60 degrees with the cloud layer hanging over central Ohio.

Rain chances will really begin to increase across central Ohio during in the middle of the week. Our best chances for much needed rain will be between Tuesday through Thursday, with Wednesday giving us the biggest chance. Portions of the region can expect up to a half in of rain with a couple of pockets seeing more. Highs will stay in the low 70s, a little bitt cooler for this time of year.

Beyond this week we are expecting drier than normal weather to settle in, so hopefully we can squeeze out as much rain as possible. Every drop will matter. We will also begin another upswing in our temperatures. The weekend will see a return to the upper 70s, and we are looking at above normal temperatures moving in by the end of the month.


A cool northwesterly flow will bring true fall weather. Skies will be partly sunny, and afternoon temperatures will reach the low to mid-70s. Clear conditions tonight and light winds will allow readings to dip into the upper 40s for the second morning in a row.

High pressure will build eastward on Friday. with plenty of sunshine. Readings will reach the mid-70s, falling back into the 60s for Football Friday Nite games.

The weather will moderate on Saturday, as readings climb into the seasonal upper 70s. Clouds will gradually increase, but otherwise another perfect weekend for football.

A cold front arriving on Sunday will bring a few rain showers, followed by a return to pleasant weather next week.
