Thankfully, our string of wet stormy days is about to come to an end. Sunday will start out damp, but we will see improving weather as we go through the day. Here’s a look at the National Weather Service precipitation analysis over the last 7 days:
Gloomy Sunday morning and early afternoon, but our weather will gradually clear Sunday afternoon behind a passing cold front. Those high dew points will also trend downward as cooler drier air flow into the Valley. Temperatures tonight will dip to the mid-40s under partly cloudy skies.
High pressure will take control of our weather to start the new work week. Sunshine and mild temperatures will highlight Monday’s weather. Afternoon temperatures will be quite chilly for early June and afternoon highs won’t get much higher than the low to mid-60s here in the Valley.
Low dew points (humidity) and clear skies Monday night will allow temperatures to cool off quickly to the low 40s. Some of our secluded valleys may see the upper 30s to around 40 for the Monday night low.
The sunshine will continue on Tuesday as the center of high pressure shifts east to Virginia. That will allow a southerly flow to set up Tuesday afternoon with warmer temperatures in the low 70s to around 75 in our southern communities. Increasing southern air will also bring back some humidity.
Hopefully, with a couple of nice sunny days and mild temperatures, our local farmers will make some progress on the delayed planting season.
UNSETTLED WEATHER RETURNS MID WEEK
A warm front lifts through east-central Ohio late Wednesday. With an increase in moist air and dew point inching back up, chances for occasional showers and a few thunderstorms will return for the latter half of the week.
With no real dramatic changes to the airmass in place, daytime highs in the Valley will generally hover in the upper 70s – nighttime lows in the low 60s.
