Outdoor fun, fireworks, and hot weather.

The rain has been holding off for the most part the past week with just some isolated rain.  So great weather to head to the park with the kids.  Summer wanted to explore some of the trails.
We had some of her preschool friends over on Friday for her birthday party.  It was a LOT of fun.  We had some water fun as well to beat the heat.
I went running with the Columbus Westside Running Club on Saturday morning.  Great group of runners.  I was easing back into running after an early-week minor injury. So I did 6 miles and got photos of some of the runners for our Facebook group.
Saturday night we caught the fireworks at the Hollywood Casino.  They were about 10 minutes long and a lot of fun with the kids.  10 minutes is a great length for the young kids.  And we had a GREAT viewing location! 
Welcome to July!  We are feeling like the middle of summer this week with the heat and humidity most of the week along with isolated showers and storms.  Today will be the least muggy day this week, but still a little humid.  A front is parked between South Bend, Indiana to Dayton, Ohio and down to Portsmouth, Ohio.  On the southwest side of that front is where the muggy and hot air is located.  So we are in the slightly less humid and warm air.  This means that the best chance of rain will be along that front and farther southwest.  The chance of rain is low today, but still possible.  We will see that front slowly dissolve and lift back northeast later today & tonight so the hotter and more humid air will return tonight and into Tuesday.  Mix of sun & clouds today with highs in the mid-upper 80s. Tuesday will be hot and humid with a slightly better chance for isolated showers and storms, 40% chance. That pattern will be sticking around through the rest of the week and into the weekend. Since the rain will be more isolated, rather than widespread, some of us will see rain from time to time this week, but not everyone.  Rain is possible at anytime, but the best chance of rain will be during the hottest part of the day: afternoons and early evenings.  High temps will be near 90 for Tuesday through Independence Day.  We stay in the mid-upper 80s by the weekend as well.  It does appear a large area of high pressure early next week could drop our chances of rain, however for the next 7 days have the rain gear handy and ready to go, along with some extra water to stay hydrated.  Have a good one!
