NOTE: Ohio will conduct a statewide tornado drill TODAY, March 20 at 9:50 AM. Weather radios will alert and communities across the state will activate (test) outdoor tornado sirens. The WEA (Wireless Emergency Alert) system will be tested as well.
There is not much in the way of forecast changes but I wanted to get a quick update out for the rain we’re expecting to move in late in the day.
The bulk of today should be a pretty nice and dry day. We may even get into some sun this morning, however, the general trend today will be increasing clouds. Temperatures this afternoon will max out in the mid 50s across the Valley.
Spotty showers will begin to move in later this evening. I can’t rule out some drizzle or a light shower early but the highest odds for rain will wait until after sunset. Simulated radar for today through 1:00 AM Thursday:
Showers will eventually become more widespread overnight and they’ll linger into Thursday morning. We should start to see the rain taper off around lunchtime tomorrow afternoon. The rest of the day tomorrow will remain cloudy.
I’m not expecting a lot of rain out of this little system. Most neighborhoods should end up with less than a quarter of an inch.
Afternoon temperatures tomorrow will be a bit cooler than today with highs around 50°.
