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.

The new work week will bring a few changes. Skies will become mostly cloudy by Monday. 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.

Rain chances will really begin to increase across central Ohio later on. Our best chances for much needed rain will be between Tuesday through Thursday. During this time we may see anywhere from a quarter to a half inch. 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.



  • Today: Partly cloudy, isolated shower, high 85
  • Tomorrow: Spotty showers, low 69
  • Saturday: Sct’d storms, muggy, high 85
  • Sunday: Clearing, nicer, high 86
  • Monday: Showers & storms, high 80
  • Tuesday: Clearing, cooler, high 79


Happy Friday!

Today will be a fairly nice day! We’ll see highs in the middle 80s, with a bit of a sticky feel to the air. Outside of a very isolated shower chance, we will remain mostly dry during the daytime, with partly cloudy skies. Then as we get toward sunset and beyond, we will start to introduce a few spotty showers.

Expect a few early morning showers, and then scattered storms arriving in several waves throughout Saturday. It does look like we will see a few storms during the mid-morning timeframe, with scattered storms then lingering into the afternoon and evening. This is the timeframe we’ll be watching closely for a few stronger storms. The Storm Prediction Center does have much of our region under a 2-out-of-5 risk for a couple strong to severe storms.

Primary threats for us would be strong winds, and also hail associated with a few of those storms.

Showers clear up overnight into very early Sunday morning, then we’ll see more sunshine Sunday, with highs in the middle 80s, and a slightly less muggy feel to the air.

Our next best shot for some heavier showers and thunderstorms is Monday, as we introduce showers off and on throughout the day. Highs in the low 80s, with breezy and muggy conditions.

We start to clear up going into the middle of the workweek, and humidity drops, too.
