Another dry day before the rain returns. Today we will start out with some high thin clouds and we will slowly see the clouds increasing through the day today. Chilly morning with temps in the lower 30s then high temps in the mid 40s today. Mostly cloudy tonight with some light rain in Southern Ohio.
Rain showers continue moving in Central Ohio on and off through the daylight hours Saturday. A bit breezy with winds picking up and temps climbing all day and evening. Some scattered storms Saturday evening. The Storm Prediction Center has backed off the Marginal Risk of severe weather for Central Ohio and has that in Kentucky now. Stay weather aware though because we could have some gusty storms. With temps warming all Saturday, our highest temp of the weekend, upper 50s, will be overnight Saturday night then a cold front pushes through and our temps continue to fall all Sunday. Winds pick up more Sunday and gusts will be 40-50mph. Rain early Sunday then a few spotty showers during the day and a few flurries, once we get cold enough. So boiled down: wet, mild, & breezy Saturday... very wet, gusty, and warm Saturday night... then very windy, damp, and cooling Sunday.
Monday and Tuesday will be dry with a mix of sun & clouds. The forecast models are split with temps early next week. A couple models are going colder, with high temps near 30, but another is going mid 40s. Right now we are going to split that difference and trend our extended forecast a tad cooler. These temps are split on Wednesday too, so the models are having a hard time grasping if we will see rain or snow, but there will be a weaker disturbance bringing the potential for rain/snow. Stay tuned and stay dry this weekend. Have a good one!
