Sunday will bring a more clouds across central Ohio. We are continuing with our trend of seasonal temperatures. For the most part it will stay very pleasant outside for any activities. Highs will be in the mid 70s and lows will be in the upper 50s. This will be the last day we will see good bursts of sunshine until the end of the week.

The new week will bring a few changes. Skies will stay mostly cloudy through Monday. No weather related issues are expected for the getting the kids on the bus or for the morning drive into work. There will be the off chance for a sprinkle or two, but that will be in the later part of the evening. Highs will stay in the mid 70s. Lows will only fall to around 60 degrees with the cloud layer hanging over central Ohio.

Rain chances will really begin to increase across central Ohio during in the middle of the week. Our best chances for much needed rain will be between Tuesday through Thursday, with Wednesday giving us the biggest chance. Portions of the region can expect up to a half in of rain with a couple of pockets seeing more. Highs will stay in the low 70s, a little bitt cooler for this time of year.

Beyond this week we are expecting drier than normal weather to settle in, so hopefully we can squeeze out as much rain as possible. Every drop will matter. We will also begin another upswing in our temperatures. The weekend will see a return to the upper 70s, and we are looking at above normal temperatures moving in by the end of the month.


Our warming trend continues into the new work week. Temperatures across central Ohio will continue to rise to the upper 80s/low 90s Monday afternoon. Sunshine will continue to stick around for the most part.

The rise in humidity levels and temperatures will continue to the raise in the heat index. Temperatures this afternoon will feel like the mid to upper 90s. Adding to the heat and humidity, another round of wildfire smoke coming from Canada will move into central Ohio late Monday night. This plume will help create hazy skies through at least early Wednesday morning.

By the middle of the week there is a little break from the high heat indices. We are also tracking the chance for rain showers and a rumble of thunder or two on Wednesday. Small rain chances will continue through the end of the work week.

Thursday will be he roughest day of the week as for as heat is concerned. Air temperatures will reach the mid 90s with the heat index making is feel like the triple digits.

Relief will be on the way by the weekend. A cold front will pass through Friday into Saturday knocking down our temperatures well below average for this time of year. Drier air will also push in making it feel like a nice autumn day. Saturday and Sunday will be partly sunny and comfortable.
