Hot and humid weather returns this week after storms bring brief cooldown


Clusters of showers and storms pushed southeast across central Ohio Saturday afternoon, with pockets of heavy rain and lightning as a disturbance tracked east across northern Ohio.

A southwesterly flow of warm and humid air will resume Sunday, with increasing humidity. A ridge of warm air will settle in over the next several days favoring drier conditions, although isolated storms will be around both Sunday and Monday during the heat of the day, with a better chance across the northern portion of Ohio. Temperatures will approach 90 degrees.

An upper-level low will settle over the Midwest next week, keeping the region in a hot, muggy flow of air, along with scattered mainly afternoon and evening storms. Look for the heat to stick around through Thursday, with highs edging into the low 90s, before a cold front begins to push south late in the week.
