FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning and happy Saturday! 

 We’re starting off the weekend watching for more rain, thunderstorms and the chance for flooding. Flash flood watches continue for parts of southern and central Ohio until 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Remember that it is never safe to cross a flooded roadway.  Instead, remember the saying, “turn around, don’t drown.”

Our weekend won’t be a total washout, but between clouds and a steamy conditions, we’ll see see an increasing chance for more showers and thunderstorms as we heat up in the afternoon. This is thanks to an area of low pressure to our south that will continue to slide east.  High temperatures will be cooler than yesterday, but pretty seasonal only topping off in the low to mid 80s.  

Overnight, we’ll lose the chance for showers and become partly cloud as lows fall to the mid 60s.  But, don’t put the rain gear away too far because we’re not done with the chance for showers and storms yet. 

As a cold front slides in from the northwestern corner of the state Sunday morning, then through central Ohio by Sunday afternoon, the chance for more showers and thunderstorms will increase.  Temperatures will stay pretty seasonal, and similar to today, starting out in the mid 60s and then climbing to the mid 80s. 

Behind this front is cooler and drier air for the start of the workweek.  High pressure will also start to take charge, which means plenty of clear sky and sunny afternoons.  

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will all look very similar with a mostly sunny sky helping temperatures to climb back up to seasonal highs in the mid 80s, followed by a mostly clear sky and lows falling to the  mid 60s. 

We’ll wrap up the workweek with more sunshine and highs climbing to the mid to upper 80s. 

Have a great weekend!
