High pressure in the Northeast brought plenty of sunshine this weekend to wrap up the month of August.

The wind turned southerly, raising the temperature into the upper 80s, with an increase in humidity. Tonight will be mainly clear and a little warmer, with morning readings in the sticky upper 60s.

The next chance for widespread showers and storms will arrive late Monday afternoon ahead of a cold front and storm system moving across the Great Lakes. A few storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rain.

Showers will taper around midday on Tuesday, as the front passes southeast by afternoon, followed by a clearing trend and lowering humidity levels.

A pleasantly cool autumn-like surge of air from central Canada will bring comfortable temperatures to begin the month of September, heading into the Labor Day weekend.

Current indications are for dry and seasonably warm weather for the Buckeyes home opener Saturday night against Notre Dame in Ohio Stadium.
