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.



  • Today: Mainly clear, comfy, high 77
  • Tonight: Clear sky, some fog, low 55
  • Saturday: Sunny, warmer, high 82
  • Sunday: Hot afternoon, high 89
  • Monday: Hot & sticky, high 90
  • Tuesday: Few clouds, high 89


Happy Friday!

We end the workweek on a fantastic note! Expect mostly sunny skies for Friday, with highs topping out in the upper 70s, which keeps us several degrees shy of average for this time of year. Humidity has lowered significantly, so we’ll have a nice, dry feel to the air, with a light breeze. That breeze has shifted more northwesterly, and as such, I do think we’ll be dealing with a bit of an upper level haze today and through the weekend, due to wildfire smoke out of Canada.

We’ve got a great night for any Football Friday Nite plans! Expect temperatures in the mid 70s at kickoff, cooling to the upper 60s as the games wrap up.

For Saturday, could see a little bit of patchy fog to start the morning, with clear skies and a lighter breeze. Then for the afternoon, expect lots of sunshine, with highs in the lower 80s. This kicks off a warming trend across Central Ohio.

By Sunday, we’re still looking at lots of sunshine, and fairly comfortable humidity, but we do warm into the upper 80s, close to 90, which sets up a really hot stretch for us.

Humidity starts to build into the next workweek, which will send “feels-like” temperatures even higher than our air temps. Air temps will run close to 90 Monday, and in the upper 80s, close to 90, through the mid-week. Looking mostly dry outside of an isolated shower chance as a result of daytime heating and higher humidity.
