.DISCUSSION...

With the warm front to the north today, expect plenty of
sunshine and hot temperatures. A shower or thunderstorm can not be
ruled out, with the best chance once again over southeastern Ohio.

We can expect much of the same on Sunday with hot conditions again
and a chance for a thunderstorm in the late afternoon through the
early evening hours.

A strong cold front will bring more widespread showers and storms
for Monday followed by much cooler air for the remainder of the
