Warmer weekend, stickier Sunday with late storms

Weather

A cold front stalled south of the Ohio River will slowly lift north overnight, with a few scattered showers early Sunday, primarily west of the Columbus area.

As low pressure strengthens over the upper Mississippi Valley Sunday, the front will lift north putting central Ohio in the warm sector, with partly sunny skies and temperatures reaching the low 80s for the first time this year. An isolated storm could develop later in the day, but most of the time will be dry, with a touch of June warmth and humidity.

Low pressure will track across Lower Michigan Sunday night, pushing a cold front southeast across the state on Monday, with rain and embedded storms, some heavy, especially Monday afternoon.

Cooler air will follow behind the departing storm, but the upper low will meander over the the region for several days, prolonging the coverage of clouds and scattered showers. Highs will drop back to below seasonal levels, mainly in the low to mid-60s through the first half of the week.
