Leaving the forecast pretty much alone this morning. We are wet here in the short term with plenty of rain around today, but then shift to dry weather for a time, with our next rain threat coming later this weekend.
Today we expect rains of .3″-1.8″ across 90% of Ohio. The heavy rains will be triggered by thunderstorms, and have the best potential along and east of a line from Cleveland to Cincinnati. Rain likely does not end until near or after midnight tonight in eastern parts of the state.
Mostly sunny skies expected tomorrow through Saturday, although clouds will be on the increase Saturday afternoon.
Scattered showers return Sunday with moisture potential for a few hundredths up to .4″. Coverage will be at 50%.
Clouds linger through Monday, with increasing sun potential in the afternoon. Then sunny and dry Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
Next Thursday scattered showers may try and push into the northern part of Ohio, but we stay partly sunny south.
The extended period is wet for next Friday and Saturday (6th and 7th) with combined rain potential of .4″-1″ and coverage of 90%. Then Sunny and dry from Sunday the 11th through Wednesday the 14th.
Temps over the next 2 weeks will be generally below normal. We do get a bit of a bump in temps this weekend, but otherwise below to well below normal, on average about 5-10 degrees.
