Temperatures will remain almost autumn-like this afternoon. However, we have dry air and sunshine going for us. Many would call this a really nice October day.
With dew points in the 30s, temperatures will drop off quickly this evening. With very little in the way of clouds overnight, temperatures will cool to the low 40s by dawn Tuesday.
As high pressure slips off to the east Tuesday we will start to see temperatures warm back up to the mid/upper 70s. A more southerly flow will also bring in moisture, so look to the humidity to inch back up as well.
Our weather will once again turn unsettled on Wednesday. A weakening storm complex will wander into east-central Ohio increasing our chances for showers and thunderstorms in the morning. There are some model differences on where the activity becomes most active, but today’s guidance suggests the stronger storms stay south of I-70. That doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods, though. There is still wiggle room over the next couple of days.
After the morning storms move through, the afternoon should be less eventful. We will need to keep scattered showers and thunderstorms going, but the odds of any one area getting rain will be random at best.
Thursday will likely be the warmest day of the week and most neighborhoods should reach the low 80s.
- Daily chances for showers and storms
- No one day looks like a washout
- About normal temperatures
A typical early summer pattern looks to evolve through the weekend. Warmer temperatures and increased moisture will keep the threat for scattered showers and storms in the weekend outlook.
