Local weather highlights for the week

Posted Monday 06/08/2020 8:57 AM EDT

TODAY: High pressure will continue to bring a pretty much cloudless day. Temperatures in the Valley will top out in the mid-80 this afternoon.

TUESDAY: Hot and muggy. As the remnants of Cristobol move north toward Wisconsin we will see clouds increase here in the afternoon as moisture from the system spreads eastward. Warm southerly air will pump temperatures locally to the low-90s and dew points will increase to the mid/upper-60s.

WEDNESDAY: Cristobol remnants will get swallowed up over the Great Lakes Tuesday night forcing a cold front through east-central Ohio late in the day Wednesday. Showers and thunderstorms are likely ahead and along the front. Some could be severe capable of producing strong wind gusts and large hail. Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

In addition, the influx of tropical moisture will bring the potential for pockets of heavy rainfall.

As of Monday morning, the best opportunity for severe thunderstorms looks to be during the afternoon and evening time frame. I’ll continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated.

THURSDAY: The cold front will be south and east of the area and high pressure will return. Thus, expect a return to dry and sunny conditions in the Valley. Temperatures will be somewhat cooler with afternoon highs in the upper-70s to near 80°.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: The best chance of seeing any rain locally will be Friday afternoon. Otherwise, mostly dry conditions are expected through the weekend. Temperatures will remain on the cooler side, relatively speaking, with daytime highs in the 70s and nighttime lows in the 50s.
