Humidity lifts back north today, after a minor front stalled out over southern Ohio yesterday. Today and tomorrow will be the hottest days of the week. We have to keep an eye out to the north as moisture moves over MI and the Great Lakes. We feel the best potential for precipitation to come into the area from those areas will come tomorrow late and then into Friday, but we won’t rule out a bit of activity late today, mostly due to heat based convection. Rain totals tomorrow into early Friday still have a range of .25″-2″ with coverage bumped up to nearly 80%. Tomorrow will likely be hotter than today in areas where clouds hold off, and heat indices will max out tomorrow as well. Humidity stays up Friday, but temps will start to back off slightly. A few showers linger into Friday. The map below shows rain potential for the 24 hour period ending pre-dawn Friday.
The weekend looks dry with partly to mostly sunny skies. While we stay humid, we are less so as temps break. Next week stays sunny, warm and dry Monday through Friday. Temps will be near normal for the week. Next chance of rain may work in over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
