Precipitation free weather expected over the state today and tomorrow. Humidity levels stay elevated somewhat, but we do get sunshine for the most part. Clouds build late tomorrow afternoon, ahead of our next weather system that puts rain in here after midnight tomorrow night on through Thursday. Rain and thunderstorms will only total .1″-.5″ over a 50% of Ohio from that system, though.
Behind it, we are unsettled for Friday through the weekend. We should be mostly dry Friday and a good chunk of Sunday. However, we can’t rule out pop up thunderstorms saturday with about 70% coverage, once you factor in about 3 different surges of moisture that try and move through the state from just before dawn Saturday morning through midnight saturday night. Rain totals should be up to .75″.
Unsettled continues to be the key word for next week too. We see scattered showers and perhaps a thunderstorm for Monday overnight, but then we don’t see another batch of moisture until overnight wednesday night into Thursday. both have the potential for .1″-.75″ rains. The monday night event has coverage at 50%, Wednesday night at 70%. Thursday the pattern starts to swing back toward drier.
Temperatures over the next 10 days will stay mild…normal to below normal on average. In addition to that, moisture clearly turns out to be adequate and timely. The map below shows cumulative 10 day moisture for the period.
