Warmer weekend could bring a few pop-up storms


We enjoyed a warm start to the holiday weekend, with a mix of sun and clouds under a bubble of high pressure. A band of showers and storms moved across the southern part of the state, before weakening a little after sunset.

A warm front with higher humidity will push north this evening, accompanied by a few additional showers, but storms will become less likely overnight instability wanes.

The main disturbance in the Upper Midwest will pass across the western Great Lakes overnight, putting Ohio in the warm sector Sunday and Memorial Day. A light southerly flow of summertime air will bring an isolated storm Sunday, but mainly favorable conditions for your outdoor plans. Highs will surge into the upper 80s under partly to mostly sunny skies.

Memorial Day will be quite warm and humid, with a better chance for scattered late afternoon storms, though not long-lasting and scattered. Very warm and sticky weather will linger through midweek with unsettled conditions conducive to pop-up mainly afternoon and evening storm with small disturbances.

Another opportunity for storms will come with a cold front on Thursday and Friday.


Tonight: Mostly cloudy, stray shower. Low 64
Sunday: Partly sunny, warm, humid, isolated p.m. storm. High 88
Memorial Day: Partly sunny, warm and humid, late-day storms. High 88 (67)
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, warm, sticky, few showers and storms. High 87 (68)
Wednesday: More sun, pop-up storms later. High 88 (69)
Thursday: More clouds, showers, storms likely. High 86 (68)
Friday: Scattered showers, storms. High 83 (67)

Have a good evening! -Ben
