Sunday will begin mostly sunny and dry but high pressure will shift east later in the morning and allow for a cold front to cross east-central Ohio. Showers and thunderstorms expected along the frontal boundary will affect the Tuscarawas Valley Sunday afternoon.
At this time, no severe thunderstorms are expected with the system. Current modelling suggests a line of showers and storms crossing the Valley around 3:00/4:00 PM Sunday. Simulated radar product for 3:00 PM Sunday from the NAM (North American Model):
The main line of showers and thunderstorms should exit east of the area quickly but a few showers may linger through Sunday evening. About a quarter to a half-inch of rain can be expected with this system.
MONDAY – NEXT WEEK
More comfortable humidity and daytime temperatures around average will settle over the region through mid-week. Our next chances for rain will arrive Tuesday with a cold front dipping south from the Great Lakes. Fair weather will return to end the work week.
Temperatures will remain in the low 70s through Wednesday before creeping back up to around 80 degrees Thursday and Friday.
