Warm summer weather with mostly sunny skies, isolated showers east


High pressure and drier air will settle in for several days, as we prepare for a warm and sticky weekend.

An elongated area of low pressure over the Appalachians will keep the chance of isolated showers and storms mainly east of Ohio, with a stray shower possible over the southeastern hills.

Temperatures will reach the mid-80s Thursday and Friday and upper 80s over the weekend, with nighttime lows in the mid-60s under partly cloudy skies.

The high-pressure area will shift east of Ohio over the weekend, resulting in rising humidity. A disturbance will track across the Great Lakes, bringing an opportunity for scattered late day thunderstorms Saturday, most likely across the north.

A stronger system will cross the Great Lakes early next week, generating more widespread daily afternoon and evening storms through midweek. Look for the heat to stick around, with highs edging into the low 90s.


  • Thursday: Mostly sunny, warm, isolated shower southeast. High 86
  • Tonight: Fair, mild. Low 64
  • Friday: Mostly sunny. High 86
  • Saturday: Partly sunny, isolated storms p.m. High 88 (68)

  • Tuesday: Hot and muggy, few storms. High 91 (71)
