Muggy week with scattered showers, storms

Forecast

A storm system in the Mid-Mississippi Valley will continue to draw a muggy southwest flow into Ohio. A few showers and storms will pivot northeast across western sections of central Ohio overnight.

Scattered showers and storms will intensify each mid-afternoon through early evening, though coverage will be scattered. Due to the high humidity, the rain will be heavy at times in slow-moving cells.

The storm system will gradually open and drift northeast into the western Great Lakes, with a decreasing threat of rain, as temperatures climb into the mid-80s. More sunshine will push readings into the upper 80s Thursday. Morning lows will only dip down into the low 70s.

Rain chances will increase by Friday into Saturday when a cold front moves slowly south across the region. Drier air could filter into Ohio later in the the weekend.
