COLUMBUS (WCMH)–An upper disturbance will bring clouds and weakening showers and storms into northern parts of central Ohio early this afternoon, brushing the Columbus area north of Interstate 70.
On the western margin of high pressure over the Northeast, temperatures will warm up into the seasonable low to mid-80s, with clouds and more sunshine across the southern half of Ohio.
A boundary associated with today’s northern showers will lift north as a warm front early in the weekend. Warm and more humid conditions will develop in a southwesterly flow, pushing temperatures into the upper 80s Saturday.
A cold front will dip south Sunday, trailing low pressure over eastern Canada, bringing a chance for scattered storms Sunday. The front will sag south of the Ohio River and wash out Monday, leaving us with a mostly dry and very warm pattern the last week of July.
Highs will reach into the low 90s beginning Monday under a ridge of high pressure aloft, with only a slight chance for a pop-up storm midweek.
