High pressure over New England will maintain mostly sunny conditions on Sunday. As the center of high pressure drifts eastward its influence on our weather will weaken this afternoon allowing cirrus clouds to creep in over east-central Ohio ahead of the next frontal system. The cold front is fairly weak and there is not much moisture but Monday will start out with clouds before the system clears out Monday afternoon.
Temperatures today and tomorrow will trend warmer than the last several days and afternoon highs should reach the upper 40s locally.
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY
The first of a couple of weather systems will impact east-central Ohio on Tuesday. Moisture associated with this first disturbance is meager at best. However, we will need to keep at least a slight chance for light showers. Temperatures locally look to remain favorable to rain. The potential for mixed precipitation is more likely north of the area.
High pressure will briefly return for Wednesday bringing an end to any precipitation by morning. Warmer air in a southwest flow will push temperatures into the upper-40s to near 50°.
THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY
The models are coming into better agreement with a strengthening low pressure system moving through the Great Lakes region Thursday and Friday. A strong southerly flow ahead of the system’s cold front will result in Thursday being the warmest day of the week. Temperatures locally should climb into the low-50s.
Precipitation will spread into east-central Ohio ahead of the cold front. Today’s modeling leans more toward temperatures being plenty warm enough to support rain with this system locally. The better odds for snow and/or mixed precipitation look much better for the northern parts of Ohio.
High pressure dries things out again Friday afternoon through Saturday. Temperatures will return to the 40s.
Wet weather looks to return Sunday with the next low moving into the Ohio Valley. Confidence in the track and strength of this one is low.
