Cooler, much less humid pattern for the weekend


Strong storms rolled through central and southern Ohio Thursday evening, leaving areas of wind damage and pockets of flooding in the south-central areas. A cold front colliding with steamy air was responsible for the widespread thunderstorm activity, which shifted south of the Ohio River after midnight, allowing drier air to take hold today.

Clouds thinned out, leaving us with partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70s. Expect clearing conditions and much lower humidity tonight.

Saturday morning will begin with readings in the pleasant 50s. Some clouds will stream in with a disturbance that could bring a few showers to far southern Ohio Saturday evening into the overnight hours. Temperatures will peak in the upper 70s.

A cold front Sunday could trigger a late shower, but the bulk of the day will be dry and very nice, with a slight warm-up into the low 80s. The cold front will reinforce a pleasant northwesterly flow the first week of August.
