Warm, sticky weekend, isolated showers, relief coming

Forecast

High pressure anchored off the southeast Atlantic Coast continues to pump moist air northward. A meandering upper-level low that generated frequent showers and a few storms for days has shifted east to the central Appalachians, allowing for more sunshine, sending the thermometer up to 90 degrees in Columbus late Saturday.

A weak cold front and disturbance will trigger a few showers overnight and early Sunday. A line of showers and storms will likely form Sunday afternoon over southeastern Ohio along the front and push south of the Ohio River later in the day.

The weather will remain warm and moderately humid through Monday under an area of high pressure. Temperatures will reach the mid-80s Sunday and Monday, slightly above normal.

Another cold front will spark scattered storms Monday afternoon. A push of cooler, drier air will follow beginning Tuesday, with a mix of clouds and sun and pleasant conditions. A northwesterly flow will lower highs to the upper 70s and morning readings will dip into the 50s midweek.

Annular Solar Eclipse

Here is another view of Thursday’s annular solar eclipse in central Ohio (June 10). The clouds broke over Sunbury, where Conner Wolfe, a high school student, captured these photos of the partial solar eclipse, as the moon’s shadow briefly covered the lower left portion of the sun just after sunrise for about a half-hour.

Annularity was confined to the Arctic region of Canada and Greenland, though with some sunlight filtering through to create the rare “ring of fire” where the sun, moon and Earth were aligned ideally. Areas close to annularity saw a sickle-shaped solar disk.
