Periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms have shifted north of central Ohio late this evening, after bringing locally 1 to 2 inches of rain near and north of I-70 that caused ponding on some roadways. Expect a lull in the rain overnight as the focus for lift shifts to near and north of U.S. 30.

Low pressure will move east across northern Missouri to Indiana by Monday morning, and then drift over northern Ohio during the afternoon. The result will be an extended stretch of wet weather through early Tuesday.

Showers and a few storms will become more widespread Monday. A cold front will cross the state in the afternoon that could bring a few embedded gusty storms east of I-71. Temperatures will turn a little milder in the warm sector through Monday afternoon, reaching the mid-60, before cooling off behind the cold front Monday night and Tuesday.

A few showers will linger Tuesday morning, and then partial clearing will develop late in the day. Temperatures will be stuck in the low 50s, dipping into the low 40s Tuesday night.

The best day of the week will be Wednesday, with high pressure bringing sunshine milder weather. Another wet weather system will cause showers to return Thursday and Friday, lingering into the beginning of next weekend.
