Partly Cloudy Skies, Stubborn Showers Through The Rest of the Week, Cool Temperatures

By David Saurer - New Philadelphia, Ohio | July 29, 2014

radarGood Tuesday to everyone. We are definitely off to a chilly start with intervals of sun and clouds around the county. The stubborn upper-level low pressure across Southern Hudson Bay has slowly creeped into Central Quebec, with that associated cold front moving out to sea. However, we will be experiencing a few shortwave disturbances for the next 48 hours.  This will keep the clouds around and the threat for showers in the forecast.

A slight warm-up is coming for the latter half of the week, when we will finally see an 80 degree reading. Meanwhile, our air conditioners and electric bills will get a break.

NEAR TERM FORECAST through Tonight: 

PlannerI believe we should remain relatively dry for the most part throughout your afternoon across the region. We are seeing on the model guidance a weak mid-level shortwave that could trigger an isolated sprinkle in a few spots. Some of them will be lucky enough to swing into the northern areas of the county, which is a bit of a stretch; I will say we will stay dry.

There is an awful chilly air above the ground that will keep the skies on the cloudy to partly cloudy side. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s which is about ten degrees below normal for the end of July.

SHORT TERM FORECAST from Wednesday through Friday PM:

Regional 1The stubborn trough pattern across Tuscarawas County that will keep the clouds and the sprinkles in the forecast will continue through the latter half of the week ahead. We do see a bit of a moderation trend in the temperatures, with readings approaching the lower 80s. Good news there. We are seeing on the models an energy wave rotating back into the region in the mid and upper-levels. This will keep the showers around, especially in the northern half of the county.

There could be enough instability in the atmosphere on Thursday and possibly Friday to hear a couple rumbles of thunder. Friday brings another shortwave disturbance into the region with another threat for a shower or a thunderstorm.

LONG TERM FORECAST from Saturday through Next Monday: 

7 DAYThe pattern continuing to see a trough sticking around. We will continue to see a slight improvement in the temperatures to seasonable levels. The good news is, the humidity level will remain on the comfortable side even with an increase in the moisture flow in the atmosphere.

Another shortwave will try to swing into Tuscarawas County by Saturday afternoon and evening, triggering a shower or a thunderstorm for a few of us. This disturbance could stick around through Monday keeping the shower threat. However, I am seeing on the models, this trough could get out of here by Monday afternoon. This could leave us on the dry side temporarily as the temperatures continue to remain seasonable to start out August.

The projection from the National Climatic Data is showing well below normal temperatures for most of the Eastern half of the nation for August, slightly above normal precipitation as well.

That wraps-up Tuesday’s forecast summary and a look ahead. As always, you can follow the latest updates in the forecast on our awesome website. We can also do the tracking of the precipitation on the radar as well. Joe and I want to wish everyone an enjoyable Tuesday.
