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.



  • Tonight: Some clouds, low 70
  • Wednesday: Scattered PM storms, high 88
  • Thursday: Spotty T-showers, high 81
  • Friday: Isolated shower, high 78
  • Saturday: Partly sunny, high 76


Good Tuesday evening!

The heat & humidity is still stuck in Central Ohio! “Feels-like” temperatures are well into the 90s for Tuesday evening. But, as we go through the rest of the week, we will start to feel a lot more like Fall.

Stray showers and storms start to pick up later in the day on Wednesday. A cold front building out of the west will move in as the day goes on. There is a 1/5 risk for potential severe weather on Wednesday. Temperatures and humidity will still be on the higher side, but we only make it to the upper 80s on Wednesday.

Rain and storms pick up overnight into Thursday. We still see a little bit of wet weather left over on Thursday and even an isolated shower last into Friday. As rain chances drop, temperatures will drop as well. We’re falling through the 80s in the middle of the week to the mid 70s by the end of the week.

Great weather is in store for Ohio State’s home opener against Youngstown State. Temperatures will top out in the mid 70s with a good mixture of sunshine and clouds. The air will feel fairly comfortable as humidity stays on the lower side. We keep that trend going into the following week!
