A strong cold front crossed Ohio early in the day Saturday, ushering in the coolest weather of the season so far. After two weeks of summer warmth and unusually high humidity for October in recent days, fall weather has returned to Ohio this weekend.

Skies have cleared with a chilly Sunday morning in the low 40s for the start of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Marathon & 1/2 Marathon at North Bank Park. Afternoon readings will top out in the low 60s, several degrees below normal.

Crisp conditions and plenty of sunshine will prevail most of the week, with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. A cold front will bring a few showers Thursday.
