IF we have a chance at any rain in the next 10 days, that chance comes later this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon. Let us be clear right from the beginning…the chance is very, very, very small. Instability showers and storms likely develop today to our west over western IN and eastern IL, but here we are limited to far western tier counties, and even there we just don’t have the moisture to work with. Right now it just does not look like we have any good new for moisture coming in the near term.
Temps step up to finish the week and we will solidly be in the 90s over most of the state. Humidity values will be elevated as well. We keep temps well above normal through the weekend, pulling back slightly early next week but still staying in the mid to upper 80s.
A front sags through the state and region next Wednesday. We see very little moisture with the front, but may be able to squeeze out scattered showers Wednesday afternoon in the south and southwest part of the state. The biggest change from the front will be north winds, and temps back closer to normal for a few days.
The extended period shows no well organized front with moisture all the way through the 15th. Late the 14th we may have a few scattered to isolated showers in northern Ohio, but coverage stays at 30% or less. This means we end up with a mostly dry weather pattern on through the middle of June. We will need a significant change in flow over the eastern third of the country to bring bigger rain potential back to the area.
