A cold front is set to move through the area bringing rain and much cooler weather, but that won't happen until late Monday and into Tuesday.
Update: It's shaping up to be a gorgeous afternoon with little to no clouds in our sky. Temperatures will hit the middle 70s this afternoon before another cool evening. Expect low 50s again tonight with upper 70s tomorrow. Spark up the grill and enjoy the last weekend of summer!
As high pressure shifts to our east, south winds will take over. That means we start our warm-up. Temperatures for Sunday will jump into the middle 70s for afternoon highs. Dry air is still in place so after sunset, expect a quick cool down. Jackets are definitely needed as you head out the door early Monday. Throughout Monday, south winds will push warmer air north and into Ohio but with the warmth comes moisture. Expect a few more clouds Monday but the rain should hold off until after midnight.
Some of the models are bringing our next best chance for rain early Tuesday morning. Plan for scattered rain throughout your Tuesday before dry air pushes the rain out early Wednesday. Just like last week's rain, this will be followed by a rush of cooler air. As far as temperatures go, expect upper 70s Monday, 60's Tuesday and some areas Wednesday will struggle to get into the lower 60s. The official beginning of Autumn is Saturday. The next thing to look for is the changing fall foliage!
