We have a spectacular fall afternoon in progress and a beautiful evening coming our way. Much of this week is pleasant and summerlike before the showers arrive and the temperatures plummet late this week.

DRAMATIC CHANGE ON THE WAY: High temperatures at the beginning of the week will be nearly 10-15 above average. High temperatures by this weekend will be 10-15 below average. Good chance we might even kick on the furnace this weekend!

ISS VIEWING: The International Space Station will fly over Central Ohio at 8:18pm, appearing just above the NW horizon, travelling almost directly overhead (85) and disappearing five minutes later in the SE. The sighting opportunities on Tuesday and Wednesday are much lower in the sky, just barely above the trees. So, tonight’s the night! Plus, we have a just-past-full moon to enjoy in the evening sky; it rises at 9:05pm Monday and sets at 12:29pm Tuesday.

NATIONWIDE TEST THIS WEEK: FEMA and the FCC are planning a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, at 2:20 pm. You'll get a mobile phone alert and a text message that says, “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

MONDAY NIGHT: mainly clear, starry, and mild, low 60.
TUESDAY: mostly sunny, very warm, feeling like summer, high 85.
WEDNESDAY: partly cloudy, warm, muggy, high 86.
THURSDAY: partly cloudy in the morning becoming mostly cloudy, chance of showers in the evening, high 80.
FRIDAY: mainly overcast, rain and showers, cooler, high 69.
SATURDAY: mostly cloudy, slight chance of isolated showers, windy, cooler, high 59.
SUNDAY: mostly cloudy, breezy, slight chance of isolated showers, cool, high 59.
MONDAY: partly cloudy, high 60.

High pressure is centered over Northeastern Ohio this afternoon and most of the state is enjoying blue sky and late-summerlike temperatures. Humidity is relatively low and comfortable. High pressure remains in the region tonight with mainly clear sky and an excellent view of the International Space Station as it passes over the region. As high pressure moves to the east on Tuesday, Ohio gets a southerly flow which will boost our temperatures again. We will be warm and feeling like summer again on Wednesday with a few extra clouds.

An approaching cold front will push clouds into the region during the day on Thursday, however, the rain holds off until the afternoon commute or later. Temperatures will remain above average even as the clouds begin to thicken up during the day. The first cold front arrives Thursday evening and a secondary front pushes through the state early Friday morning. The second front is the one creating the biggest change. Friday’s front will bring in much cooler air. In fact, dramatically cooler air. Temperatures on Thursday will be near 80 while Friday’s high temperatures will be in the 60s, and only in the 50s for the weekend. By this weekend, overnight lows will be in the 40s. Mild days and cooler nights should really give the leaves a push toward changing colors.
