Periods of rain/sprinkles will highlight today as a weakening upper-level disturbance slowly moves through the region. Today’s rain will be off and on and mostly light. There may be a period of steadier rain at some point across the Valley depending on how today’s rain bands set up.
Temperatures this afternoon will be a little warmer, though. Most neighborhoods will get to the upper 50s to near 60° today.
As our disturbance moves off to the east this evening drier air will move in as high pressure begins to build from the west. Expect decreasing rain odds late this afternoon with a trend toward clearing skies overnight.
Saturday will be the pick day of the weekend. Dry weather is expected with high pressure in control. Clouds will be thickest during the morning but we should see gradually improving skies during the afternoon. Temperatures will warm to the upper-60s under increasing afternoon sunshine.
We stay dry and warm Saturday night. Temperatures will bottom out in the mid-40s.
Sunday starts out dry but clouds will increase as we go through the day as a warm front lifts through east-central Ohio. A light shower can’t be ruled out Sunday afternoon as the front approaches. Odds for rain will gradually increase by evening with rain becoming likely Sunday night.
Temperatures will be well above average Sunday afternoon and highs will eventually reach the low-70s. Even with the rain Sunday night we can expect mild temperatures in the upper-50s.
Widespread light rain showers are likely to continue into Monday morning tapering off by mid-afternoon. Total rain through the weekend period will run about a quarter to a half inch.
