Overnight: cloudy, low in the lower 70s. Monday: chance for showers and thunderstorms, rain may be locally heavy, high near 90, wind southwest 7-14 m.p.h. Monday night: decreasing cloudiness, low in the upper 60s. Tuesday: partly cloudy and less humid, high in the upper 80s, wind north 6-12 m.p.h.
A low pressure system passing north of the Great Lakes is pulling a cold front toward Ohio. The cold front has generated a line of thunderstorms over northwestern Indiana that is moving toward the southeast. The line may weaken during the overnight hours, but it could bring a chance for showers and thunderstorms on Monday morning. The cold front will move across Ohio on Monday afternoon. The cold front will lift the humid air and it could initiate the formation of new showers and thunderstorms when it moves across the state. An area of high pressure over southern Canada will move southeast behind the cold front. The high pressure system will bring slightly cooler, less humid air on Tuesday. ***Central Pacific Tropical Storm Darby*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday the center of Tropical Storm Darby was located at latitude 21.7N and longitude 158.9W which put it about 40 miles east-southeast of Lihue, Hawaii.
