After last night’s severe storms, calm and tranquil weather will highlight the next few days. Stratus clouds left over from the cold front that crossed east-central Ohio last night will break up by mid-morning as high pressure builds over the region. Sunshine and much less humidity will dominate the afternoon.
It will seem cooler today with afternoon temperatures near average.
Mostly clear skies for tonight with calm wind. Despite our recent rainfall, dew points will be quite low overnight as drier air continues to move in over the region. I’m not expecting much in the way of fog development. Temperatures will cool off to the low 50s by early Thursday morning.
WARMING THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
Thursday will bring nothing but clear blue skies and brilliant sunshine. A bit more moisture will arrive by Friday and that will add some cumulus clouds to our otherwise blue skies. Still, Friday will be another gorgeous day with practically no chances for rain.
After a cooler day Wednesday, temperatures will gradually warm Thursday and Friday. Temperatures on Thursday will reach the low 80s Thursday – mid-80s by Friday. Friday will also seem a bit muggy as moisture in the atmosphere increases.
UNSETTLED HOLIDAY WEEKEND
The first hints of a more active weather pattern will arrive Friday night as moisture continues to stream in. The additional moisture may just be enough to possibly bring a few scattered showers Saturday morning. As moisture continues to increase through the day, spotty showers and thunderstorms will be possible.
As a potential tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico spreads moisture north into the southern states, a continuous northward stream of moisture could bring shower and thunderstorm chances to the region Sunday through Memorial Day. It probably won’t rain all the time but the threat for a shower or storm just about anytime will be with us – especially Sunday. Memorial day looks like more of a hit-or-miss day.
Temperatures will be quite warm through the period – and muggy. After a couple of low humidity days today and Thursday, dew points will climb through the weekend.
Odds for showers and storms will continue into early next week. Thereafter, temperatures look to remain above average through the end of the month in the NWS 8 to 14 day outlook.
Thanks for taking a few minutes to catch up with our local Tuscarawas Valley weather. Have a great day!
