Wednesday begins with clouds but the general trend today will be clearing skies and more sunshine this afternoon. Temperatures today will show signs of warming and the trend toward milder temperatures will continue as we get toward the weekend. Expect afternoon temperatures today in the 44° to 46° range.
We will stay dry tonight and into the first part of Thursday. Clouds will increase tomorrow ahead of the next weather system that will bring rain chances to the Valley. Thursday night and Friday will likely bring widespread rain showers. Temperatures will really ramp up and most areas will see afternoon highs around 60 – give or take a degree or two. Unfortunately, rain will dampen any outdoor activities.
A couple of cold fronts will push through east-central Ohio over the weekend and temperatures will return to more seasonal readings. Snow and rain showers will likely plague the northern Ohio counties but it looks like we stay dry through the weekend here in the Valley.
