Quiet and dry weather will dominate the Valley area today (Friday). A quasi-stationary boundary along and south of the Ohio River will stream high-level clouds north into the region so sunshine will be spotty this afternoon. Precipitation associated with the front should stay to our south. Temperatures today should hover around 80° or so.
High pressure will shift east tonight and Saturday keeping pleasant weather through Saturday. Upper-level moisture won’t be as much of an issue so expect a sunnier day tomorrow. With less cloudiness, temperatures will also warm by a couple of more degrees than today.
WET START TO THE WORK WEEK
Southern low pressure creeps north and east Saturday night into Sunday. Odds for showers and thunderstorms will gradually ramp up during the day, but chances will remain pretty low locally until Sunday night. Moisture increases overnight Sunday then peaks Monday with a cold front. With abundant moisture available, widespread showers and thunderstorms will be likely on Monday.
Severe weather doesn’t look likely Monday but there will be plenty of moisture for thunderstorms to tap into. Heavy downpours will be possible locally – especially Monday afternoon and evening.
High pressure will return to bring dry weather and sunshine back to the Valley on Tuesday. Temperatures Sunday and Monday will generally top out in the upper 70s but cooler temperatures will return on Tuesday behind the cold front.
Moisture returns to east-central Ohio mid-week bringing back the threat for more showers and storms. NWSWPC precipitation outlook for the upcoming 7 days indicates we can expect about an inch of rain locally. I suspect the bulk of that will occur Sunday night through Monday:
LOCAL SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK
- Friday: No severe thunderstorms are expected
- Saturday: No severe thunderstorms are expected
- Sunday: Thunderstorms will be possible but strong to severe storms are not likely
- Monday: Thunderstorms are likely with a few strong storms possible. There is a potential for locally heavy rainfall.
Pool weather looks hard to come by in the extended 6 to 10-day outlook. Cool Canadian air will dive south into the Midwest and Great Lakes regions next week and next weekend may bring downright chilly temperatures for mid-June. That’s welcome news for those who do not favor the heat and humidity.
