A pesky upper-level low that has been spinning over the eastern part of the country since last weekend drifted north from the Carolinas to West Virginia, creating an expanding pattern of showers. Added instability will be conducive to a few gusty storms later in the day that will diminish quickly during the evening with cooling.
A few showers are possible again on Friday, mainly east of the Columbus area, as the system drifts away. High pressure will build east over the weekend, setting us up for a very warm and humid pattern, bringing highs to near 90 degrees. A few late day storms are likely Sunday as a disturbance moves east from the Plains.
A cold front will cross the state on Monday, accompanied by scattered showers and storms. An unsettled pattern with low pressure aloft will linger through the middle of the week, keeping the threat of some rain in the forecast into Wednesday, as temperatures slowly return to seasonal levels (low 80s).
