A corridor of muggy tropical air is partly responsible for the beneficial rain augmented by moisture transport from the remnants of Tropical Storm Imelda. Since Friday evening, locally 1 to 3 inches of rain have fallen in three separate rounds of showers and storms over northern portions of the Columbus area, while areas near and south of I-70 picked up less than a quarter-inch in total.
Dry conditions will return Sunday, with temperatures reaching the upper 80s under a partly to mostly sunny sky, with summer humidity.
A cold front pushing into the high pressure ridge late Sunday will spark scattered showers and storms Sunday night into Monday. A more seasonable air mass will settle in early next week in time for the first week of fall.
