Tuesday’s high of 67 was a tie for the coolest high temperature on record for August 25 in Youngstown. Today? Not much different!
Although showers are confined to the snow belt this morning, a sprinkle or shower may sneak into the viewing area on occasion today.
15 hour futurecast:
Highs will be quite similar to yesterday; a good dozen degrees below average.
The atmosphere will try to brighten Thursday afternoon but it may be a struggle. Temperatures no higher than the lower 70s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND:
This is when things turn around. The upper low will fill in and move away from southern Ontario and that will allow summer to return. Highs 80-84 with the only chance for rain coming Sunday and that will just be a spotty shower or storm.
The heat is on next week! Look at how the pattern changes between now and late next week. Basically a reversal of the pattern across the low 48. The west will turn cool under a trough and a ridge will bring the warmth to the east.
By Tuesday highs will be in the mid 80s:
And the pattern will likely hold through the Labor Day holiday weekend/Canfield Fair:
Erika will intensify as we head into the weekend and could be a significant problem for parts of the Bahamas. Concern is starting to grow that SE Florida could be impacted but confidence in the track decreases quickly as we get into Sunday/Monday. Stay tuned!
