A flood watch is in effect for southeastern Ohio through Sunday evening.

A wave of showers and storms fed by abundant moisture streaming north from the Gulf of Mexico brought locally 1-2 inches of rain in heavier downpours. Generally dry conditions will prevail overnight, with some patchy fog late.

A front stalled over northern Ohio will wash out, keeping the weather warm and muggy. The high humidity will continue fuel rain chances into early next week, but with far more dry hours and only widely showers and storms.

High temperatures will generally be in the mid-80s Saturday, though warming to the upper 80s on Sunday. A cold front will bring more opportunities for showers and thunderstorms Monday night and Tuesday, lingering into Wednesday.

Cooler and drier air will move in later in the week and bring pleasant temperatures and sunshine.
