Saturday update on Irma remnants for the Tuscarawas Valley area
As promised in earlier updates, this update brings the latest weather info regarding the effects of Hurricane Irma on our local weather.
Our weather for mid week is beginning to come into better focus as models start to get a handle on where the remnants of Hurricane Irma track next week.
Most of today’s modeling continues with a westward trend in the track of low pressure that will be the leftovers of Hurricane Irma.
Should this trend continue into early next week – and I have little to doubt that it will – local impacts here in the Tuscarawas Valley will be nothing more than a chance for scattered showers Tuesday and Wednesday.
While I am yet to go ‘all in’ this far out, I have reduced the chances for rain in my 7-day forecast down to 30%/40% for Tuesday and Wednesday. I previously had rain chances up to 60% for the same period.
Rain totals projected by the NWS Weather Prediction Center don’t peg this as a big rain event. We could see perhaps a couple of tenths of an inch through Friday.
So, basically as of today (Saturday), any impacts from what will be the remnants of Hurricane Irma will be minimal here in east-central Ohio.
I’ll continue to post updates regarding the impacts of Irma if and when any significant changes in the forecast occur. But, as of today, this doesn’t appear to be anything of concern for our area.
If you’re not a fan of the cool and below average temperatures of late and wondering if it will ever turn warm before winter sets in, relax. Warmer temperatures look to return by mid month.
The odds are pretty good that temperatures could approach 80 degrees for a few days.
NWS Climate Prediction Center is also bullish on a warm stretch returning next week.
