Bands of rain and embedded thunder with some downpours rotated across central and eastern Ohio, with locally 1-3 inches of rain, as small disturbances interacted with very moist air. Leftover showers will diminish overnight, though a few pockets of rain could arrive around the time of the morning commute.
A storm system in the Mid-Mississippi Valley will continue to draw a muggy southwest flow into Ohio, triggering afternoon and evening storms, but coverage will be scattered. Due to the high humidity, the rain will be heavy at times with slow-moving cells.
The storm system will drift northeast into the western Great Lakes and weaken, with a decreasing threat of storms midweek, as temperatures climb into the mid-80s. Hazy sunshine later in the week will push readings into the upper 80s Thursday, and morning lows will only dip down into the low 70s.
Rain chances will increase Friday into Saturday, when a cold front moves slowly south across the region.
