Tuscarawas County Weather News

Wednesday showers and storms will bring cooler temperatures

By Joe Ebner - New Philadelphia, Ohio | July 22, 2014

As we expected, Tuesday brought a very warm and muggy day to the Tuscarawas Valley. While it did get mighty warm this afternoon, we didn’t quite make it to 90 degrees today. Our official high at Harry Clever Field in New Philadelphia came in at 87 degrees. And, we didn’t come close to our record high of 96 degrees set in 1962.

One weather station in Tuscarawas County at Maple Grove Cemetery in Dover came in with a 95 degree reading this afternoon. This station ALWAYS reports higher temperatures and I’m not real sure if I trust it.

The fair weather cumulus clouds from the afternoon will fade overnight tonight allowing for a clear sky tonight. The smoke from wildfires in western portions of the U.S. should provide us with spectacular red and orange sunsets tonight. We will remain warm and muggy overnight under clear skies with lows dipping only to around 72/74 degrees tonight.

Again, atmospheric smoke particles will bring us a colorful sunrise for the Wednesday AM commute. Temperatures will remain muggy Wednesday, but not quite as warm with a high around 80 to 82 degrees.

A cold front crosses the region Wednesday afternoon and this will provide the spark for afternoon thunderstorms and showers. I think the best window will be between the hours of 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM with all the activity pretty much out of here by 7:00 PM tomorrow.

NAM model for CAPE and shear available for Wednesday thunderstorms

North American Model CAPE and shear values projected for Wednesday afternoon.

While we will have plenty of CAPE  available for some strong storms to develop, instability and shear don’t look all that impressive. I can’t rule out a few isolated cells reaching severe criteria, but for the most part, tomorrow’s storms will be non severe. The only thing we’ll have to watch for will be some storms capable of a downpour or two.

Once the cold front crosses, cooler and dryer air will usher in its wake. High pressure will build in for Thursday and bring us a couple of nice sunny days Thursday and Friday. Highs Thursday will be in the upper 70s with a high around 80 for Friday.

The high will maintain control of our weather going into the weekend with highs Saturday in the low 80s under mostly sunny skies. The next system arrives Sunday to bring us increasing humidity and the chance for some showers and thunderstorms.

Expect the ‘Polar Vortex’ hype to start again on the national media as a dip in the jet stream brings another shot of unseasonably cool temperatures for next week.
