What Happened to Fall?
Daytime highs will be hotter than normal this week
It was a hot day to kick off Fall as temperatures got into the mid 90s. In fact, this is the 4th year in a row we’ve started the Autumnal Equinox in the 90s in Columbus. The hot temps aren’t done yet.
Expect daytime highs to run 8-11 degrees above the norm with nighttime lows 3-8 degrees above average this week. Humidity won’t be completely unbearable, but at times it could get uncomfortable.
Boy, our lawns and gardens could use some good ol’ H2O! Unfortunately, not much rain, if any, will fall this week. A weakening cold front will slide through Tuesday and trigger a few isolated showers, but most of us won’t see any rain. Even if you do, it won’t amount to much.
On the western side of the front comes another area of high pressure that will keep us dry moving forward adding to our growing drought deficits.
