Heat, humidity and storms return next week

Posted: Updated:
Toledo, OH - The severe weather season hasn't really started locally and across the county we are currently on pace to set a new record low number of tornadoes in a season (detailed statistics just include the past decade). This week the weather pattern will become a lot more active. While the tornado and hail threat right now appears to be low, the threat for very intense lightning storms and damaging wind gusts is high.

Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are likely as a slow moving storm system approaches the Great Lakes. The winds will be out of the south allowing the steamy tropical air to surge north for most of the week. Highs will be in the 85 to 90 degree range with very humid to oppressive conditions at times starting Monday. The multiple shots of rain will add up through the week. The latest computer models show an average of 2-3" of rain (Monday through late Saturday). A few spots could end up with a weekly rain total of 4". Right now it looks like the rain will be spread out over a long time period which will help keep the flooding threat down, but it is something we will have to watch this week. The image below is one computer model's forecasted rain totals for the entire week. It is a good sample of where the heaviest rain could end up but actual rain totals will vary significantly.
