Nate remnants bring much needed rain
Rain from the remnants of Nate traveled across the lower Ohio Valley over the past 24 hours bringing much needed rainfall to the Tuscarawas Valley and east-central Ohio.
Actually, we received more rain during the past 24 hours than for the whole month of September – which totaled 0.81 inches officially at the New Philadelphia Airport.
The rain is certainly needed since most of the Valley is in the first stages of drought. It will help alleviate the drought somewhat but it isn’t enough to completely eliminate drought conditions.
Nate remnants, now just basically a big blob of rain, will continue moving east and out of the region today. And, although a spotty shower or two will be possible through the afternoon, chances for rain will diminish as we go through the day.
The rest of today will remain cloudy but high pressure to our west will push in late in the day and may even allow for some partial clearing by evening. Temperatures this afternoon will remain above average with most neighborhoods reaching 75/77 degrees.
Depending on how much clearing we manage to end up with tonight, fog may develop overnight.
Dry weather continues on Tuesday as high pressure tracks east across northern Pennsylvania. Temperatures will be similar to today under a mix of sun and clouds.
The next low pressure system will move into the southern Great Lakes region on Wednesday bringing back the likelihood for rain returning to east-central Ohio Tuesday night and Wednesday.
