A cold front will work through our area later today, and that will bring the well above normal temps to an end. However, precipitation still looks to be somewhat of a hit and miss proposition. We stay warm through most of the day as clouds increase, but the front does not make it through until later this afternoon and tonight. We are going to keep rain totals at .1″-.6″ over most areas that see rain, and allow up to .8 in far NE Ohio. Still, general coverage of moisture from this event is limited to 60% of Ohio from tonight through early tomorrow morning.
WE turn out mostly sunny and cooler tomorrow afternoon. Then from Sunday through next Friday we will be partly to mostly sunny with temps eventually getting back to normal and slightly above normal levels. Still, the warmth will not be anywhere near where we have been the past few days. We also cant rule out a scattered shower popping up overnight Sunday night or early Monday morning, but the threat is not enough for us to put any more mention into the forecast than that.
Next Saturday features a mix of clouds and sun and we cant rule out a shower or two in far south and southwest Ohio Saturday afternoon and evening. Then mostly sunny to finish the 10 day forecast window next Sunday.
The extended period looks a little wetter, due to a couple of different factors. First, the system we had been looking for for next weekend is delayed, pushing back into Monday the 23rd. There we can see rains and thunderstorms bringing .25″-1.5″ totals and 80% coverage. Then, the other system in our prior extended forecast is also delayed about 18 to 24 hours, arriving Thursday. In-between we end up with a mess of lingering clouds, and therefore a threat of a few isolated showers. this lends to an overall damp feel. Finally, we dry down completely for Friday the 27th. However, the entire extended period will be significantly cooler, with temps below normal, the way it looks right now, which right in line with our previous temperature thoughts.
