High pressure from Canada brought refreshing early autumn air right on schedule, along with sweater weather. The sky will be mostly sunny, with light winds, under the fair-weather system, and high temperatures will only get up to the mid-60s (normal is 75), before dipping into the 50s for a crisp Football Friday Nite. Some high clouds will move in overnight.

High pressure will slide east over the weekend, allowing a disturbance to drop southeast, bringing thickening clouds and a few very light showers midday on Saturday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies for OSU game vs. Wisconsin in the evening. Gametime readings will be comfortably cool in the cool mid-60s. 

Low pressure moving through the Great Lakes on Sunday will be accompanied by scattered showers during the first half of the day. A cold front will across the state, bringing a reinforcing shot of chilly air to begin the final week of September. Isolated showers are likely on Monday across the northern part of the state due to residual moisture.

Sunshine and cool weather will prevail through the remainder of next week, returning to seasonably mild weather by the weekend.
