FORECAST DISCUSSION

This will sound familiar.  Today will be hot and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Like yesterday, and the day before, the high temperatures should be right around 90.  The heat index should peak in the mid to upper 90s.

Also like yesterday the showers and thunderstorms, possibly with heavy downpours, might keep temperatures a little shy of their possible peaks. Isolated strong or severe storms will also be possible.

The weekend will be humid with mainly diurnal showers and storms.  Monday a cold front will bring more rain and a few thunderstorms into the region.

Meanwhile what is left of tropical system Ida is now predicted to move out of the deep-south, into the Tennessee Valley and eventually arrive in the Ohio Valley as rain and showers Tuesday and Wednesday. In that scenario Central Ohio dries out on Thursday.

Happy Friday/Fri-YAY!
