The Last Heat of Summer?

After a record breaking day Thursday (we hit 100° in Columbus), conditions are primed to do it all over again today. The heater stays on this afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 90s. I’m calling 98° for the high which would tie the record set on this day back in 1911. We do have a chance to get hotter, so the record may fall.

A “cool” front is currently pushing through the area and we’ll start to feel some effect tonight in our northern viewing area as overnight lows will try to dip into the mid to upper 60s. The cool down really begins Saturday as cooler air dropping in from the northeast will help knock daytime temperatures down into the upper 80s to low 90s. Still hotter than normal, but the Fall machine will be in motion.

The second cold front, this one will be much stronger, slides through Monday/Monday night and ushers in Fall conditions as early as Sunday with much cooler temperatures next week with highs in the 70s and 80s and lows in the 50s and 60s. Enjoy!

Keep smiling!
