Nice summer day in Columbus, central Ohio, showers this weekend

Forecast

A mostly sunny, warm summer afternoon in store for us today following a couple pleasantly cool days, before the weather turns unsettled over the weekend. Temperatures will rebound into the mid- to upper 80s in a southerly flow behind high pressure moving east to the Atlantic Coast.

A frontal boundary in the Midwest will inch closer by the weekend and stall off to the northwest. Plenty of Gulf moisture will be drawn northward into the Ohio Valley, resulting in increasing cloudiness Friday and rain moving into northwest Ohio.

Low pressure over Iowa Saturday morning will track into northern Michigan, with a trailing cold front triggering showers and storms early in the day, with the rain shifting north by afternoon, resulting in some sunshine and muggy conditions the remainder of the weekend. A stray storm could pop up later in the day, especially Sunday afternoon or evening.

Episodic showers and storms will be with us for many days to come, as the boundary moves slowly east. Cloud cover and more frequent rain will shade afternoon temperatures downward into the lower 80 next week.
