FORECAST DISCUSSION:

The most active weather this morning is with a convective complex moving through northern Ohio. In Central Ohio showers and thunderstorms moving from west to east have developed. More storms are possible today. It will be very warm and humid again with highs near 90 and heat indices possibly into the mid-to-upper 90s.

Tomorrow will be hotter and more humid and storms will develop in that favorable environment.  Highs will be in the low to mid-90s which may lead to heat indices in the Heat Advisory range of 100-degrees or higher.

A cold front moves through the area Friday. Showers and thunderstorms with this front may be strong to severe with the primary threat being damaging winds. 

Some showers may linger early Saturday depending on the speed of the front. Otherwise the weekend will be seasonable warm and less humid.

Happy Wednesday!
