Sunday will bring a more clouds across central Ohio. We are continuing with our trend of seasonal temperatures. For the most part it will stay very pleasant outside for any activities. Highs will be in the mid 70s and lows will be in the upper 50s. This will be the last day we will see good bursts of sunshine until the end of the week.

The new week will bring a few changes. Skies will stay mostly cloudy through Monday. No weather related issues are expected for the getting the kids on the bus or for the morning drive into work. There will be the off chance for a sprinkle or two, but that will be in the later part of the evening. Highs will stay in the mid 70s. Lows will only fall to around 60 degrees with the cloud layer hanging over central Ohio.

Rain chances will really begin to increase across central Ohio during in the middle of the week. Our best chances for much needed rain will be between Tuesday through Thursday, with Wednesday giving us the biggest chance. Portions of the region can expect up to a half in of rain with a couple of pockets seeing more. Highs will stay in the low 70s, a little bitt cooler for this time of year.

Beyond this week we are expecting drier than normal weather to settle in, so hopefully we can squeeze out as much rain as possible. Every drop will matter. We will also begin another upswing in our temperatures. The weekend will see a return to the upper 70s, and we are looking at above normal temperatures moving in by the end of the month.


Clouds lingered behind a stalled cold front east of the Appalachians, sandwiched between high pressure over the northern Great Lakes. Afternoon temperatures were limited by cloud cover to the mid- to upper 70s, with some periods of sunshine.

Upper-air low pressure over the Tennessee Valley will lift northward overnight, with rain and storms east of the Ohio Valley. However, a few showers will brush southeast Ohio.

Skies will remain mostly cloudy east of the I-71 corridor on Sunday, with some sunshine north and west. Temperatures will top out in the mid- to upper 70s again.

Sunnier skies are expected on Monday, allowing readings to move back up into the seasonable low 80s.

A low-pressure system will move through the Great Lakes on Tuesday. Showers and a few storms will develop through the day, ending in the evening, as a trailing cold front shifts winds to the northwest.

A reinforcing surge of cool air will arrive midweek, with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s Wednesday through Friday. Morning lows will dip into the 40s later in the week.
