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.

The new work week will bring a few changes. Skies will become mostly cloudy by Monday. 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.

Rain chances will really begin to increase across central Ohio later on. Our best chances for much needed rain will be between Tuesday through Thursday. During this time we may see anywhere from a quarter to a half inch. 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.


A cool northeasterly flow around high pressure will continue to bring true fall weather today. Afternoon temperatures will reach the mid-70s, with plenty of sunshine.

Clear conditions tonight and light winds will be ideal for Football Friday Nite, and allow morning readings to dip into the upper 40s for the third morning in a row.

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

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