The rain showers associated with a weak front have all pushed off to the south and east this morning. That left us will about a quarter of an inch of rain in local rain gauges, generally speaking.
Some areas of fog this morning around the Valley but this should mix out by late morning. Otherwise, mostly sunny weather should dominate today under building high pressure. Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 70s.
Dry and mostly sunny conditions will settle over east-central Ohio through Thursday. The low dew points will make for a couple of autumn-like days. Generally, afternoon highs will again reach the upper 70s. Clear skies overnight will bring nighttime lows in the mid-50s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND
A weak cold front will cross the region Friday but with plenty fo dry air in place, there doesn’t appear to be a big rain threat. It will be a cloudier day but any light rain associated with this feature will hold off until Friday night. Even then, we’ve only gone with a very slight chance of a shower or a few sprinkles in any one spot.
A couple of upper-level disturbances will slide across the region Saturday and Sunday. These little bumps will have some moisture to work with that will bring at least low to moderate chances for a spotty shower. It’s really tough to nail down specific times for rain to affect any one neighborhood so the weekend forecast will include adjustments going forward.
Even without any rain, the holiday weekend will be hampered by fairly cloudy conditions as these upper-level disturbances move through. The best odds for a completely dry day will come on Labor Day locally. With better chances of seeing more sun, Monday will also be the warmest day of the weekend with highs in the low 80s.
That warming trend, along with increasing dew points, will continue into Tuesday ahead of the next weather system.
