High pressure southeast of the region will bring one more warm, humid day in a southwesterly flow. Afternoon readings will reach the upper 80s, under partly sunny skies.

Behind the cold front, a few showers are still possible on Thursday, mainly east, with seasonable readings near 80 degrees in the afternoon.

An upper-air disturbance over the Great Lakes will trigger a few showers mainly over eastern Ohio during the next several days. Temperatures will only reach the 70s, with more clouds than sunshine. Morning lows will cool down to the upper 50s.

Comfortable temperatures will stay with us next week. Showers are likely on Tuesday.
