Man, what a great weekend that was! It was sunny all weekend, and it felt good outside. It was the perfect weekend to head outdoors and enjoy the gifts of nature!
However: today is Monday.
Even though it is the worst day of the week, it’s looking pretty nice weatherwise. Still being mainly under the influence of high pressure, out weather weather is looking warm and humid. Temperatures during the afternoon hours will likely reach the lower 90s for almost all of us, with dewpoints hitting the 70s.
This will create a mega uncomfortable atmosphere to really do anything in, so it might be pretty good that you are at work! Hit another cup of coffee by 2 pm, and you’ll be good to go!
Towards the evening, we may see a batch of dying high clouds moving across the region, but no rain is really expected. As we head into the overnight hours, much of the same is expected, with lows falling into the mid 70s.
Tomorrow: Partly sunny, with isolated to scattered storms. Highs around 91ºF. Tomorrow night: Mostly cloudy, with rain chances increasing later. Lows around 75ºF.
Your Tuesday definitely isn’t looking as good as today is, but it is still looking pretty decent out there.
With a low pressure system beginning to sag southward, we will be on the periphery of the ridge to our west. This provides opportunities for weak weather system to roll into the region and spark up some isolated storms, and cloud cover. Well, there looks to be some weaker batches doing this during the day on Tuesday.
Because of an increase in cloud cover during the day, I am only expecting highs to reach the upper 80s and lower 90s. I don’t think that rain chances are great everywhere, but I do believe that some will receive rain.
Overnight, a weak shortwave will move eastward across the lower Ohio valley. This will spark rain chances overnight, and will keep things cloudy for the most part.
Temps will fall into the mid 70s for lows.
Wednesday: Partly sunny, with scattered storms increasing in the afternoon. High of 89ºF. Wed. night: Cloudy, with showers and storms. Low of 75ºF.
Well, Wednesday looks to be a fairly interesting weather day across the region. A fairly mean shortwave is forecasted to beginning carving out a stronger surface low out to our west, beginning midday Wednesday, and continuing on into Thursday.
This will create an ideal scenario for clouds and rain to prevail across the region. While skies won’t be overcast, I do believe we’ll be in and out of clouds and showers for the better part of Wednesday, especially in the afternoon and evening.
This will keep highs in the upper 80s at the most, and that will help create an environment favorable for storms in the afternoon.
Overnight, the low looks like it will begin to get fairly wrapped up across our region, leading to some heavier rainfall threats moving across the region. Skies will be mostly cloudy, keeping temps in the mid 70s.
Thursday & Friday: Storms on Thursday; becoming clearer Friday. Highs in the mid 80s. Lows in the mid 60s.
The details on Thursday and Friday are a bit tricky right now, as the way the mid week low pressure system develops will have a large impact on how these couple days pan out. What I do see is cooler temps both days, but Thursday looks like there could be some storms, and the dynamics seem supportive of some severe weather. IF we were able to destabilize enough on Thursday, that would be a threat. Friday looks clearer as the low moves to our east. Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s both days, with lows falling into the mid 60s.
