Hot and humid conditions continue through the first part of the week. This pattern will yield some precipitation over the next few days.

We swing back the other way for the rest of the week and weekend. Humidity levels drop and temps move to more comfortable levels. Sunshine dominates for the most part, but we do have a little trough that comes through late Thursday afternoon through the overnight that can trigger a few showers over about 60% of Ohio, with totals of a few hundredths to .3″. Otherwise we are sunny and dry all the way through next tuesday.

A system starts to lift up from the south overnight next tuesday night into Wednesday, and a few showers can come with it, but action stays mainly south of I-70 and has a coverage area of no more than 30%, with the best threats near the OH River.
