Welcome to Monday! Let's get this party started! We have a fine-lookin' week ahead of us!
MONDAY: showers ending early, patchy fog in the morning, partly cloudy, hot and steamy, high 88.
MONDAY NIGHT: partly cloudy, less humid, low 64.
TUESDAY: mostly sunny, not as muggy, cooler, high 80.
WEDNESDAY: mostly sunny, very pleasant, high 79.
Last night's thunderstorms dropped 1.15" of rain at Port Columbus. The leftover moisture is great for your lawn but it's also making it a sticky, humid morning. It feels downright tropical out there! You may find some patchy fog in low-lying areas. A few storms are still lingering around the area but shouldn't last much into the day. Once they taper off, we'll start drying out. A weak trough will pass through the state today but the best chance for showers will be in eastern and southeastern Ohio. Think we'll stay dry in Columbus so we'll drop the POPs to 30% and may remove that completely before noon.
We'll cool off a bit starting Tuesday and then be very comfortable for most of the week. High pressure will build into the area by Wednesday morning. As it clears out the remainder of the clouds, we'll also be enjoying some drier, cooler air.
