COLUMBUS (WCMH)–Drier air swept in behind a cold front, after many days of rain and high humidity, ushering in a pleasant change in the weather.
Sunshine mixed with some afternoon clouds, as an upper-air low moved through the region, but the air is dry, and skies will gradually turn mostly clear overnight. Temperatures topped out in the seasonable mid-80s.
We’ll see considerable sunshine the first half of the week, as high pressure over the Great Lakes builds south. A stray shower could develop again late Monday afternoon, but coverage will be sparse, if anything develops at all.
Temperatures will warm further Tuesday into the upper 80s ahead of a weak cold front that will drop south across Ohio early Wednesday, with only a slight chance for a shower early Wednesday. Slightly cooler air and less humid air will follow under partly cloudy skies. Warmer temperatures with sunshine are expected Thursday.
The next chance for showers and storms will precede a cold front late Friday and linger into the first half of next weekend.
