After a few spotty showers this morning, dry conditions and seasonal temperatures are expected the remainder of the week and into the weekend.
Clouds will stick around this morning associated with a cold front making its way south. I can’t rule out a sprinkle or light shower until the boundary clears the region later this morning. The clouds will break up and occasional sunshine will break out this afternoon as high pressure builds.
Despite the cold front, temperatures across the Valley will not take much of a hit today and dew points will remain in the low 60s.
With high pressure controlling things the next couple of days, Friday and Saturday should remain dry and fair. Temperatures will hover around average – 80°/82° and dew point will stay in the ‘not that bad’ range.
SUNDAY THROUGH MIDWEEK
A storm system will slowly advance into the Ohio Valley Sunday. Recent model runs have slowed this system up quite a bit and if the trend continues, Sunday might just stay dry. Showers will eventually threaten Sunday night with thunderstorms likely on Monday with the system’s cold front.
High pressure will return dry weather to the region on Tuesday but another disturbance may bring another chance for rain come midweek.
Warm temperatures on Sunday will cool off Monday and Tuesday behind Sunday’s front.
Temperatures through mid-June are forecast to stay a bit below normal with above normal precipitation in our region of the country.
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO MY SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS
Facebook continues to throttle small business accounts on their platform. That, plus the fact that there appears to be little interest in local weather reporting on Facebook. The engagement rate on our Facebook is currently less than 1-percent and quite frankly, is just not worth the effort to post there.
Starting today, my Facebook posts will consist mostly of links to website and web app updates. I’ll also post important notices regarding NWS Advisories. Other than that, Facebook users seem to like TV and national weather outlet coverage rather than rely on a local source. Whether it’s Facebook’s algorithm limiting post exposure or just lack of interest, I just don’t have the time or resources to compete with the clickbait.
In due time I see the Facebook Page just going away. Not many Facebook folks are interested enough and just don’t have the inclination to read. It’s just not worth the effort it takes to manually post timely news and weather information there when the interest is so low.
Twitter continues to gain new followers and those that do follow the platform are more engaged. My Twitter posts will continue to highlight timely information as well as automated updates throughout the day. Since the Twitter platform is more tuned toward immediate events, critical timely local weather information will continue to be posted there as well. Folks can join TuscWeather on Twitter @tuscwx.
Have a great weekend.
