The heaviest and steadiest rain stayed just south of the Tuscarawas Valley earlier this morning. While we can expect to see an occasional spotty shower in spots through the remaining morning hours, chances for showers will decrease through the afternoon.
Hi-res FutureCast through 1:00 a.m. Tuesday:
Clouds will also begin to thin out as we work our way toward evening becoming partly cloudy overnight.
The clouds today will also keep a lid on high temperatures this afternoon with most areas topping out in the low 70s.
TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY – A COUPLE OF NICE DAYS
High pressure will build from the west to bring the sunshine back to east-central Ohio on Tuesday. Although it will be warmer tomorrow, temperatures will continue to stay below average with Tuesday afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s.
The sun continues on Wednesday as the high shifts toward the east coast through the day. Afternoon temperatures will creep a little closer to where we should be for early August and most neighborhoods will end up at around 80 degrees of so in the afternoon.
SHOWERS & STORM CHANCES FOR THE LATTER PART OF THE WORK WEEK
The odds for showers and thunderstorms will return on Thursday as a disturbance crosses Ohio west to east. Current guidance thinks the bulk of rain and storm activity stays in the northeast portions of Ohio. We will still need to keep a moderate (30% – 50%) chance of a shower or thunderstorm mainly in the afternoon and evening.
Chances for showers and thunder increase on Friday with the next storm system tracking across the Great Lakes.
Near average temperatures will prevail both days with highs around 80 on Thursday. A bit warmer on Friday with afternoon temperatures around 82.
The unusual lack of heat and humidity of a normal August continues to look like a no-show at least through the middle of the month. Dog days of summer? They’re not looking likely this time around.
LOCAL WEATHER ON YOUR RADIO – I just thought it deserves a mention that only ONE area media outlet offers weather forecasts from our own LOCAL weather information provider. DNP 102.3 out of Dover has ALWAYS used TuscWeather.net home-grown forecasts that originate right here in New Philadelphia. All of the other radio and print media contract with a variety of national weather information outlets.
Those big national outlets are fine but they really have no clue to our local weather. I would bet money they have no idea of where we’re even located. They rely on computer-generated generic weather forecasts with absolutely no personal input.
DNP 102.3 is the ONLY local media company using TuscWeather.net. If you want a LOCAL weather forecast from a LOCAL source, it’s only on TuscWeather.net and DNP 102.3.
