A warmup for the remainder of the week as temperatures climb back above average by Friday and remain there through early next week. Dry weather continues until the weekend when scattered storms are possible, no day will be a washout though.
What a great day for working outdoors! Temperatures in the 70s, plenty of sun and blue skies, and no humidity to speak of. We don’t get many of these kinds of days in late June here in the Valley.
Thursday should bring another nice day, although temperatures will be a bit warmer. After a mostly clear start to the morning, we will start to see some high cirrus clouds move in for the afternoon and evening. Highs locally will likely end up in the low to mid-80s.
A warm front slides across east-central Ohio on Friday. We’ll have a few more clouds with that as it moves through but we won’t see any showers or storms. It will usher in a more humid air mass and while the humidity shouldn’t get too crazy yet, it will turn noticeable more humid.
Chances for showers will move into the region on Saturday. As of Wednesday evening, it looks like most of the day will be dry in most locations. There can be a spotty shower just about anytime, though. With a southwest flow, there will be plenty of Gulf moisture moving in and it’ll start feeling soupy again.
Once this humid Gulf air arrives it’s going to stick around for a while. As long as it’s here we’ll have daily chances for showers and storms. THis will likely be the case through at least the first half of next week.
We’re not expecting any severe thunderstorms. But, with such an abundant amount of moisture present, ANY shower or storm could produce tropical downpours. Plus, they will be slow-movers. We will have to be mindful of the potential of local flooding. We won’t receive as much rain as locations off to our west, but there is the potential for rises in creeks and the Tusky. I’ll continue to keep an eye on things as modeling gets closer to the beginning of next week.
As for temperatures through the period, it’ll stay fairly warm. Not crazy warm, but it is summer, so we can expect mid to upper-80s. That tropical humidity will make it feel much warmer, though.
So if you’re like me and work outside or in a non-A/C shop, the nice, dry, and low-humidity days are numbered.
