Tuesday Weather Briefing: A Taste of Fall Then a Warm Up

Good morning all,

Last night’s storms are history but they dropped 1-2″ or so of rain in parts of Mercer and Trumbull counties. South of 224, people are saying “WHAT RAIN??” as most areas had little or no rain. A shame given how brown everyone’s yards are. THis morning, we have muggy conditions and some intervals of sunshine:

Highs will be in the mid 70s today. A sprinkle or 5 minute shower cannot be ruled out but it’s like a 20% chance kind of thing.

TASTE OF FALL:

Wednesday will feel like late September with clouds, sunny breaks and a cool breeze. Highs only 72-75. There once again could be a passing sprinkle or shower. The air will be drier as well as the lower dewpoints over the Upper Midwest now head our way:

THURSDAY/FRIDAY:

A couple of nice days coming at the end of the week. Sunshine and temperatures getting back to where we expect them to be in mid August.

FRIDAY NIGHT/SATURDAY MORNING:

A dying cold front will sputter through Ohio and PA and could bring a scattering of showers and storms. Hopeful that these are gone by Saturday afternoon and the rest of the weekend should be dry, warm and pleasant.

LONG RANGE:

Warmer air is on the way with upper 80s possible Sunday into early next week. Turning more humid as well. Summer is a long way from over.

PERSEID METEOR SHOWER:

Will do a separate Blog post on this tonight or tomorrow but clouds will probably inhibit our view tonight. Much better viewing Wednesday night with a mostly clear sky which is great because that’s when the shower peaks. Nearly new moon means it will be good and dark. Can see 5-100 meteors per hour if you are in a dark enough spot.
