Storms bring relief from extended heat wave


Several broken line of storms, a few with gusty winds and hard downpours, moved through central Ohio this afternoon, with a few trailing showers diminishing this evening behind a weak cold front and low pressure over Lower Michigan. A pleasant breeze tonight will make it feel much better.

On the East Coast, Tropical Storm Fay made landfall north of Atlantic City, New Jersey, and is dumping 2-6 inches of rain, accompanied by 50 mph winds, now moving north across New York City and into western New England Saturday.

Saturday will feel much better, with more sunshine reasonable humidity. Highs will top out in the mid-80s. A disturbance tracking out of the Upper Midwest will bring showers and a few storms later Saturday night and continuing at times on Sunday, which will again keep readings in the low to mid-80s Sunday afternoon.

We could still see a storm on Monday, but coverage will be scattered, and there will be a fair amount of sunshine through the first half of next week. Temperatures will start off in the mid-80s Monday afternoon, then heat up under another significant heat ridge midweek.
