Well, September is off to a pretty amazing start. Look at the temperature anomaly map…lots of orange and red!
In fact, this was the 2nd hottest first week of September on record in Youngstown.
Back to work, back to school….back to the heat today. We expect it to be just as warm as yesterday and maybe even a degree or two warmer. A high of 92 would be the warmest temperature in over 3 years in Youngstown.
BUT, cooler air is on the move:
Certainly not a washout but a shower can occur anytime and there can be a couple of thunderstorms around in the afternoon. There is not much going on in the atmosphere that would cause widespread severe weather. Mainly just some garden-variety summer storms. The Storm Prediction Center has the Valley in the “non-severe” zone:
Sluggish front may bring a little more rain in the morning but the afternoon should be dry with falling dewpoints. Open up those windows Thursday night!
A comfortable day with highs in the upper 70s and some sunshine. Next front arrives Friday night with some showers around.
Cooler than average. Best chance for spotty showers will be Saturday. Might not be much more than sprinkles. Highs in the lower 70s Saturday and mid 70s Sunday.
Not much to write home about as far as trends next week….looks like a typical mid September week with somewhat warmer-than-average temperatures.
