Dry with seasonal temperatures and less humid for the Tuscarawas Valley weekend


The last seven days have brought a ton of rain to east-central Ohio but the streak of rainy and stormy days is coming to an end.

Officially at the New Philadelphia airport a total of 3.41 inches of rain has fallen over this past week. Our average for the whole month of July is 4.13 inches, so we’ve basically received nearly a month’s supply of rain in the Tuscarawas Valley just in the last seven days.

Here is where the rain fell in Ohio this week:


Today will be a day with improving weather across east-central Ohio. We should get a break this morning and even get into some sunshine at times for a bit before a cold front creeps into the region later this afternoon. This may spark a few scattered afternoon showers but in all reality, most neighborhoods should stay dry today.

With clouds keeping a lid on sunshine today afternoon temperatures should be around average – 81 – 83 degrees. It will also be another muggy day – at least to start – with dew points remaining in the low 70s until the cold front passes late afternoon or early evening. Drier air will slowly creep in behind the front and bring much more comfortable humidity for the weekend.


Dew points will continue to drop overnight under partly cloudy skies and dry conditions.

High pressure will build in overnight and remain in control of our weather through the weekend and allow us to begin drying out. Saturday will be sun-filled and the humidity will be noticeably less.


Temperatures Saturday will be very pleasant for mid July with afternoon highs around 80 degrees.

The sunny weather continues on Sunday. A bit warmer, though, with temperatures about where they should be – 82 – 84 degrees.

The only bump will be Sunday night with a weak cold front that may bring a shower after sunset Sunday night. This is a sorry excuse for a front and there won’t be much moisture with it. None the less, I went with a low chance for a spotty shower in the forecast for now with a slightly better chance for a shower overnight.

Showers may linger into Monday morning but these should end by the afternoon as high pressure builds back in from Canada. Sunny and mild summertime weather should continue through Wednesday with seasonal temperatures.

Our next chance for showers and storms will arrive on Wednesday with a warm front. Confidence in timing this far out is low, so I just kept a low chance for precipitation in the forecast for now.

Warmer temperatures will return for the latter part of the week behind that front. Temperatures across the Valley will likely get back to the upper 80s once again.


As you would expect with all the rain this week, river levels will remain elevated through the weekend but gradually recede through the period as we dry out.


Thank for reading Friday’s edition of the Tuscarawas Weather Blog. Have a great weekend!
