A warm southwesterly wind circulating around high pressure over the Southeast provided perfect weather for the first weekend of the Ohio State Fair, with highs in the upper 80s and moderate humidity.
A few pop-up storms will develop mainly west of I-71 late on Monday, as the air becomes increasingly humid. Look for temperatures again to approach 90, with a stiff southwesterly breeze. Any late day storms will lose steam later in the evening with gradual cooling.
Showers and storms are more likely on Tuesday with the passage of a cold front that will bring in slightly cooler and less humid conditions the remainder of the week, High pressure will build southward from the western Great Lakes, with a northwesterly flow returning, similar to this past week. The weather will turn more humid next weekend, with a slight chance for a pop-up storm.
We are currently averaging three degrees above normal coming to the end of a very warm, sticky July, with an average high of 88 degrees, but with below normal rainfall after a very soggy period.
Tonight: A few clouds, warm and muggy. Low 70
Monday: Partly sunny, hot, humid, few late storms west half. High 88
