We made it into the low 90s again today at Port Columbus. We’ve now seen 44 days this summer with temperatures at 90 degrees or higher. That number ranks us 6th all-time in Columbus.
We can’t completely rule out a stray shower late this afternoon and early this evening. However, most of us will stay dry and warm. Skies will be partly cloudy overnight with lows for the most part in the low 60s. Mainly dry and warm conditions will continue Sunday with highs back around 90. We’ll once again see a slight chance for a stray shower Sunday afternoon with most areas missing out. Our next best chances for rain will come Monday with highs in the mid 80s.
An Air Quality Alert has been extended into Sunday for sensitive groups as the weather conditions will lead to more smog formation. Smog forms when the sun bakes the pollutants from our vehicles, factories and other sources. Young children, the elderly and folks with respiratory conditions are urged to limit outdoor activities.
Alerts: Air Quality Alert in effect through Sunday
Inconvenient Weather: Slight chance for a stray shower late this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon (10-20%).
Planning Your Day: Expect a warm evening under partly cloudy skies. Sunday will be partly sunny and hot with highs around 90.
