Clouds will pretty much rule the day across east-central Ohio. Temperatures this afternoon will also remain on the cool side and most neighborhoods across the Tuscarawas Valley will not do much better than 60 degrees or so for the afternoon high.
Normally we should be in the 70 to 72 degrees range for highs here in the Valley as we approach mid May.
I do think most will stay dry today but an isolated spritz of drizzle will be possible just about any time.
MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND
Low pressure will shift to the Carolina Coast by Saturday and we can expect to see some improvement with our weather in east-central Ohio in the afternoon.I expect we stay dry with some occasional sunshine interspaced with clouds
I expect we stay dry with some occasional sunshine interspaced with clouds. Temperatures will remain cool with most of the area topping out in the mid 60s for an afternoon high.
Mother’s Day is looking better again this morning. Again, chances are that we stay dry across the Valley on Sunday with a sun and cloud mix. Temperatures look to warm to around 70 for most communities.
SPRING RESUMES NEXT WEEK
After a cool weekend, things will finally start to turn around as we head into next week. A ridge of high pressure will shift from the central US east bringing an extended period of warmer temperatures through the week and into next weekend.
Temperatures will warm to around average on Monday, then climb upward peaking on Wednesday or Thursday where we will likely see highs in the low 80s.
Temperatures in the 80s will continue into next weekend with not much of a threat for precipitation through the period.
Keep in mind that confidence in these ensemble temperature trends decreases past day 5, but we can be fairly confident that at least it will be warmer all next week. So, those of us who’ve been waiting for spring, it’s arriving – just be a little patient while we get through the weekend.
I wish a happy and blessed Mother’s Day to all moms out there. I hope your special day is indeed ‘special’ for you.
