A heat wave affecting the eastern half of the nation will persist through much of the week.
The heat will roll on, with widely scattered storms that will afford localized relief in the afternoon and evening. Don’t forget to drink lots of fluids to maintain hydration as the temperature rises into the low 90s, with moderately high humidity levels.
A slow-moving cold front will enter northwestern Ohio on Monday and then stall, before washing out. However, that will bring enough lift/focus to spark scattered storms, mostly confined to the late afternoon and early evening hours, with the best coverage on Monday.
The heat and humidity will continue until another cold front arrives with late-week storms, then a slight cool-down next weekend to more seasonal levels.
