Drier today than yesterday; More sunshine, muggy and warm on Wednesday

Low pressure over Pennsylvania will slowly begin to push east today and finally exit far enough away by this evening to lessen the influence on our weather here in east-central Ohio. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to rotate around the system, but we should see less coverage than yesterday.

A shower or thunderstorm will still be possible this afternoon as we warm up, but odds for any one location will be pretty low. Any storms that happen to pass overhead will be capable of brief downpours.

Otherwise, we should see clouds this morning thin out as we go through the afternoon. With some afternoon sun, temperatures will approach the mid-80s.

Shower and storm chances will decrease this evening after sunset and the loss of daytime heating. Skies will begin to clear out overnight as high pressure aloft builds in briefly for Wednesday.

Tomorrow will likely be the sunniest and warmest day of the week. Afternoon temperatures will get to the upper 80s as a warm front lifts through east-central Ohio during the late afternoon.

As low pressure and an associated cold front approaches out of the Plains Wednesday night we will start to see cloud cover increase as well as the threat for showers and storms on Thursday.

Showers and storms will be widespread Thursday and Friday with this system. And, depending on timing, a few strong thunderstorms or an isolated severe storm can’t be ruled out – especially late in the day Thursday.

Showers and storms will continue Thursday night and Friday as the cold front approaches and crosses the region Friday morning.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK
Not bad at all for mid August. Friday’s weather system may take a bit longer to scoot far enough east and I’ve left a low chance for lingering showers in the forecast for early Saturday. But, the bulk of the weekend should be dry and pleasant.

Temperatures will cool off to the low 80s behind the Friday cold front and dew points will come down. There will be more sun on Sunday than Saturday.
