High pressure situated along the Eastern Seaboard will pump warm, moist southerly winds into Ohio through the weekend. Scattered showers will develop this afternoon along with a few storms, primarily over the northwest half of Ohio. Temperatures will reach the mid-80s under mostly cloudy skies.
A frontal boundary will stall off to the northwest across central Michigan and northern portions of Indiana and Illinois. Plenty of Gulf moisture will result in a broad corridor of showers and storms, with heavy rain causing flooding.
Central Ohio will be on the eastern fringe of the periodic heavier rain to the northwest, with scattered showers and a few afternoon storms the next several days during peak afternoon heating.
Low pressure over Iowa will track into northern Michigan, with a front serving as a focus for additional waves of low pressure and heavy rainfall from the southern Plains to the Great Lakes.
Episodic showers and storms will be with next week, as the boundary inches eastward. Cloud cover and more frequent rain and storms will shade afternoon temperatures downward slightly the middle of next week.
