Though the center of surface high pressure has moved on to the northeast we will still enjoy its influence one more day.  Today will be warmer with high temperatures rising to the low 90s in Columbus. Today the flow of air is southerly as it will the next few days. That means it will a little more humid today and a lot more humid by the weekend.
