Summer weather will continue through the weekend in a southwesterly flow of warm, moderately humid air.
A band of showers and isolated storms developed across Licking and northern Franklin counties, drifting east through the evening before diminishing.
A few stray showers and storms are possible again on Saturday, mainly over the northern half of the state.
Monday is officially the first day of fall, and we should experience a cooldown.
Ohio is on the northern edge of a broad high pressure ridge featuring unseasonably warm and mostly dry conditions. Sunshine mixed with some clouds will prevail during Saturday’s game, along with a slight risk of a shower. Temperature will be in the mid-80s at kickoff with a southwesterly breeze.
Dry and warm conditions will persist through Sunday. A weak cold front will nudge into the region from the west Sunday night and Monday, bringing a chance for scattered showers and storms, along with somewhat cooler conditions early next week.
