Welcome to hot and sticky! The humidity will be around for the next few days. And then we'll get a visit from Alberto!
AIR QUALITY ALERT for Monday because of high levels of ozone. Air quality will be unhealthy for sensitive groups.

Thunderstorms have been hanging around in Scioto County for the past few hours, just barely moving. The rest of the state has stayed mostly sunny, hot, and humid.
Interestingly, we are SUPER unstable this afternoon with LIs to -5 and CAPEs to 3000 (!) but we've had just enough high pressure influence in Central Ohio to limit any serious convection (for now). We're just getting some scattered, puffy, cumulus clouds. That said, SPC still puts all of Ohio in the General Risk category for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.
High pressure builds into the region on Monday with another round of sunshine. The RPM continues to show a small line of pop-up storms in the late afternoon. Sunshine lingers into Tuesday until we begin to feel the effects of Alberto. As the storm pushes into the interior of the US, it will send a wave of moisture into the Ohio River Valley by Tuesday afternoon and evening creating a band of showers and thunderstorms.
The current track sends the center of Alberto into Indiana on Wednesday then arcing into Michigan on Thursday. We'll be close enough to feel its effects with showers and thunderstorms both days.
