Tuesday will bring a near carbon copy of Memorial Day. Skies should remain mostly sunny today and the only exception will be some high cirrus mixed with fair weather cumulus. Just as yesterday, it will be muggy with afternoon temperatures around 90 degrees today.
A weak boundary will cross late today. With the hot temperatures and humid conditions in place, a pop-up summertime shower or storm somewhere in east-central Ohio will be possible late this afternoon. The odds are fairly slim in any one location, though. Simulated hi-res radar for today:
The remnants of Alberto will travel along the Indiana/Illinois border Tuesday night into Wednesday. While there are differences in timing and exact tracking between the models this (Tuesday) morning, showers and thunderstorms associated with the outer bands of the system will begin to spread across the region late tonight. Showers and storms will eventually become more widespread on Wednesday.
Any showers and storms will be able to tap into an abundant amount of moisture making them fairly efficient rain producers. Heavy downpours and local flooding is a concern mainly Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.
Wednesday will also bring breezy southwest wind with gusts 25 mph. Severe thunderstorms are not a big concern but any thunderstorm will be capable of heavy rainfall.
By Friday, remnants of Alberto should begin to fill in and shift east of the upper Great Lakes. The likelihood of showers and storms will begin to diminish Friday evening.
Cloud cover, as well as the rain and thunderstorms, will hold temperatures cooler Wednesday and Thursday. Highs should top out in the low 80s. Slightly cooler temperatures are due on Friday with a cold front.
Plenty of uncertainty for the weekend. This morning’s modelling suggests high pressure will return Saturday leading to a dry forecast. A disturbance in the upper-level flow may bring chances for showers and storms back to the region on Sunday before high pressure brings a return to sunshine on Monday.
Saturday will likely be the coolest day of the weekend with afternoon temperatures in the low to mid-70s. A return to warmer conditions gets underway by Monday with highs in the upper 70s.
Humid conditions will continue through the work week, especially on Wednesday and Thursday with remnants of Alberto influencing our weather. Dryer, more comfortable air will move in for the weekend with a late Friday cold front.
Thanks for reading today’s Tuscarawas Valley Weather Blog. If you work or live in an area that floods easily remain aware of the rainfall over the next few days.
