A band of rain an embedded thunder extends from Newark to Columbus, London, and Dayton, drifting east this evening, with a few downpours. The line is relatively narrow with little rain north or south. The intensity will diminish with the loss of daytime evening early tonight.

A stalled front over Kentucky will continue to be the pathway for disturbances riding east, bringing rounds of showers and storms Thursday. Clouds will mix out for a time, allowing temperatures to warm into the mid-80s, with muggy conditions ahead of a cold front arriving toward evening.

A push of drier air on Friday behind the front will set us up for a nice weekend, with highs in the low 80s and more comfortable humidity. Scattered showers and storms will return on Monday, followed by a blast of heat to start the month of August beginning midweek.
