A broad disturbance over the lower Great Lakes will slowly lift northeast, maintaining an unseasonably cool northwesterly flow over region. High pressure will nudge eastward across the Great Lakes to the Northeast, bringing plenty of sunshine, nudging afternoon readings into the upper 60s.

The remnants of Hurricane Ian will lift northward from the Carolinas after a second landfall earlier near Charleston. Clouds will increase over the Ohio Valley Friday night, with an envelope of rain overspreading the southeastern half of the state Saturday morning.

Look for periods of rain by afternoon, with a gusty northeast wind at 15-25 mph during the OSU-Rutgers game, which kicks off at 3:30 p.m. The system will stall over the central Appalachians Saturday night, and then drift east-southeast away from the region on Sunday.

Clouds will linger through the remainder of the weekend, followed by fair skies to start the week.
