Rain likely late this afternoon and tonight followed by a couple of mostly gray days

High pressure is moving out this morning allowing for clouds to spread back in overhead ahead of our next front. While east-central Ohio should remain dry for the better part of the day, rain chances will gradually increase during the afternoon and rain will be likely in the Tuscarawas Valley right around sunset.

Hi-res futurecast radar through 1:00 am Thursday:

At least temperatures will get a little warmer today and most neighborhoods around the Valley should see highs in the low 50s.

Rain will continue through the majority of the evening and into the early art of tonight then begin to taper off after 11 pm or so and become more scattered in nature. Spotty showers and drizzle may linger into Thursday morning. Temperatures will also be cooler Thursday morning and we could see a few snowflakes early.

Otherwise, Thursday will be another mostly gray day and temperatures will drop back to around 40 degrees for the afternoon high.

A bit of high pressure will return dry conditions and a mostly decent day on Friday. We may even get in a a little sun Friday afternoon. Temperatures should warm to the upper 40s.



THE WEEKEND STORM SYSTEM
We’ve been talking about the weekend storm for the last few days and today the models are beginning to spit out some details. The GFS model still wants to bring the front through early but from what I’ve been reading from my sources, I’ll lean toward the European model solutions and its idea of bringing the front through later.

One thing is for sure – This WILL have an impact on our weekend weather here in the Valley bringing rain, wind, and eventually snow by Sunday.

Low pressure and its associated cold front will approach from the west on Saturday. As it travels east and into the Great Lakes region it will strengthen and become a fairly strong storm system.

We should be in the warm sector of this system for the first part of the day Saturday with temperatures warming to the mid 50s. The biggest impact here will be wind – it will be very windy Saturday especially during the afternoon. Gusts could be in the 40 – 50 mph area in the afternoon.

You may want to consider securing those backyard trampolines, trash cans, and outdoor furniture before Saturday.

Since it will be warm, precipitation on Saturday will be rain and I can’t rule out a thunderstorm during the day. Temperatures will fall behind the cold front late day Saturday and Saturday evening. As temperatures cool to freezing, any precipitation will change over to snow showers.

Sunday will remain windy, although not nearly as bad as Saturday. Gusts on Sunday should be in the 20/30 mph range. We will also get into some scattered snow showers on Sunday although with the warm ground and gusty wind, I don’t expect much in the way of accumulating snow here.

Temperatures Sunday won’t do much better than the mid to upper 30s, so not only will it be windy but cold, too.

NEXT WEEK THROUGH THANKSGIVING
High pressure builds in briefly for Monday to bring some clearing and sunshine. Despite the sun, it will be a cold one with daytime highs maybe around 40 degrees. Tuesday will warm a little more with most neighborhoods in the mid 40s. Clouds will increase though with the next cold front late in the day Tuesday. That will knowck temperatures back a couple of notches again as we head into Thanksgiving.

While Thanksgiving definitely has a colder than average look, there does not appear to be any storm systems that would have any big impacts on local travel.
