High pressure will keep dry weather going in the Valley through Tuesday. Showers will return to the region on Wednesday.
There’s not much to say about the rest of Monday. High pressure will continue to bring sunshine and dry weather through tonight and Tuesday. We will start to see clouds building through the day Tuesday as low pressure approaches eastern Ohio and moisture increases.
As for local temperatures, many locations in the central and southern parts of the Valley will have a good chance of reaching 70° today. For the rest of us, upper-60s will be about as good as it gets. That’s still way above our average of the 54° we would normally expect.
Increasing cloud cover on Tuesday will hold afternoon’s high temperatures back a few degrees. Most places should see highs in the mid-60s on Tuesday.
UNSETTLED WEATHER WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY
Scattered rain showers will set up Tuesday night through Wednesday morning as low pressure moves into the western Great Lakes region. Odds for showers locally will then decrease by Wednesday afternoon. We should stay mainly dry then through Thursday morning before the next system returns likely chances for rain and maybe thunder by Thursday afternoon.
Temperatures on Wednesday will again top out in the mid-60s but a surge of warm moist southerly air on Thursday will push temperatures back up to near 70 again.
SOMEWHAT COOLER FOR FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND
Showers will likely continue Thursday night and into Friday morning before a cold front slips south through the region. This is not a particularly strong front and temperatures won’t cool much more than a handful of degrees with its crossing. Once the front moves through, odds for rain will subside as weak high pressure returns.
Dry weather and less cloudiness will return Friday afternoon and that weak high should maintain dry and mostly sunny conditions for Saturday.
Temperatures on Friday will be cooler but we should still see highs in the low-60s here in the Valley. A cool northerly breeze on Saturday will knock afternoon highs back to the upper-50s.
The next system will move into the region Saturday night returning chances for scattered showers back to the forecast through Sunday. Much of next week should feature temperatures closer to normal to finish out the month.
