Warmer temperatures should continue through the weekend. Rain and gusty wind are expected tonight with crossing low pressure.
Warmer temperatures are expected today as a storm system moves out of the Plains states and into Michigan. The system will push a warm front through east-central Ohio today and temperatures across the Valley will warm to the low 50s this afternoon.
While we will see a good bit of sunshine today, clouds will increase this afternoon ahead of the system’s cold front. Odds for rain showers will also increase moving in from the west tonight ahead of the system.
FutureCast radar through 2:00 AM Sunday:
Another factor we will deal with tonight and Sunday will be gusty southwest wind. Winds will gradually increase tonight to around 15 mph. Gusts may be as strong as 30 mph or so at times.
Rain showers will taper off and end early Sunday but those gusty winds will continue into early afternoon tomorrow. Winds should decrease later in the day.
Rainfall tonight may be heavy at times and a rumble of thunder can’t be ruled out. Severe weather is not expected. Total rainfall over the next 30 hours may be around a half to three-quarters of an inch in the Valley.
Mainly dry and cooler weather is expected Sunday afternoon through Monday as the front pushes east and high pressure builds over the region.
