Strong storms southeast bring relief from heat, humidity behind cold front


A weak cold front triggered clusters of showers and gusty thunderstorms moving across eastern and southern portions of Ohio this afternoon, some producing small hail and strong winds.

Behind the front, drier air will work in this evening, with clearing skies and lower humidity, which all the temperature to cool off into the low to mid-60s overnight, after a second day in a row of 90-degree heat.

Another cold front will move southeast later Monday, with only a slight chance for a shower, but with a decent push of cooler, drier air.

Tuesday will bring a mix of clouds and sun, much cooler temperatures, and chance for a passing shower. High pressure will build down from Canada in a northwesterly flow, providing comfortable weather for most of the week.


  • Tonight: Clearing, cooler and less humid. Low 63
  • Monday: Partly cloudy, warm, isolated storm p.m. High 84
  • Tuesday: Mix clouds and sun, cooler, stray shower. High 77 (59)
  • Wednesday: Sunny, cooler. High 74 (52)
  • Thursday: Partly cloudy. High 82 (53)
  • Friday: Showers, storms likely. High 83 (62)
