Forecast pattern continues to look pretty friendly to us over the next week to 10 days, at least where additional moisture is concerned. Yes, we remain cold nearby, but even that will change as we move toward the end of the week and weekend.
We have a fully dry forecast for all of Ohio from today through at least midweek next week. With no new precipitation or organized frontal action, we will concentrate on temps. We are cold today, and not quite as cold tomorrow. Temps really start to ease late in the week on Friday through the weekend, and then early next week we could even be a bit above normal. The map at right shows temps compared to normal for next Tuesday afternoon. We should see good sun through the entire period.
Later next week, our next front arrives later Thursday into Friday. This front brings some moisture, but not a lot. We expect rain (we will be warm enough for rain from that front) with totals of a few hundredths to .4″, and coverage at 70% of Ohio. The front takes about 12 hours to work through, and we clear pretty quickly behind it.
We start the extended period with sunshine for Saturday and Sunday the 23rd and 24th, and temps moderate again for the 24th. This will be ahead of our next front that arrives late Monday the 25th. Clouds increase through the day Monday ahead of the front, then rain comes overnight through Tuesday the 26th. Rain totals can be .25″-1″, with coverage at 90%. Wrap around moisture keeps clouds around for Wednesday the 27th, and we cant rule out sprinkles or flurries north of US 30 there. But then we are back to sunshine and mild conditions as we finish the extended forecast window on Thanksgiving. Right now, it looks like it should be a decent turkey day, at least weather-wise, but there is ample opportunity for Mother nature to change that up.
