A strong cold front is working its way into the area today. Any sunshine this morning will be replaced quickly by clouds in the west, but may last longer in the eastern part of Ohio. Rain arrives in western Ohio early this afternoon, and slowly we see it work eastward. However, the eastern half of Ohio may not see anything until after sunset tonight. the moisture continues to move through overnight and into tomorrow. Western areas likely see clouds break up in the afternoon, but clouds and moisture hold over eastern Ohio on through until closer to sunset. Rain totals from this event will be from .25″-1.25″ over 100% of Ohio.
Sunny, cooler and drier for Wednesday and Thursday. As mentioned some parts of western Ohio may actually see that tomorrow afternoon, but it will be limited to the western half to third of the state.
On Friday we have a minor trough sagging through that may brings some light rain. WE can see a few hundredths to a few tenths from I-70 northward, but that action falls apart as we move toward sunset, leaving southern Ohio without. WE will be partly sunny and dry on Saturday.
The remains of a tropical system will be working through the Deep South late this week, and on Sunday some of that moisture lifts into the eastern corn belt. Right now we will put a few showers in our forecast for Sunday, but the amount and duration really depends on the track and strength of the storm remains.
Dry Monday-Tuesday and the first part of Wednesday. Next Wednesday afternoon our next front is on the way, and may bring scattered shower for overnight Wednesday into next Thursday.
