Good morning and happy Monday,
After a pretty tranquil weekend, it will be a busy weather week across the Valley. A cold start to our day today with heavy frost. Some approximate lows this morning:
After that cold start, we expect plenty of sunshine today (some high clouds late should make for a nice sunset).
The rain over the Southeast? Yeah, it’s coming our way. This simulated radar shows the progress of the rain tonight and tomorrow:
This will be a pretty healthy slug of rain, with the steadiest and heaviest occurring late tonight and tomorrow morning. Just a leftover shower or two for most of tomorrow afternoon.
Rain totals: A variance in the models but I would expect an average of 0.50-0.75″.
A quiet day locally with some sunshine and mild temperatures. But a healthy low pressure system will be deepening across the middle of the country.
Warm, moist air will be drawn northward and a very Spring-like clash of the air masses will occur, leading to a severe weather outbreak.
Luckily we do not have to worry about severe weather here. That said, Thursday will be a windy day with showers around, especially during the first half of the day.
While the strongest winds will be in western Ohio, we can still expect some gusts to 35-40 mph across the Valley.
In the wake of the cold front, a chilly end to the week (windy again Friday) and weekend. But the pattern does not support sustained periods of cold so we should see readings bouncing back up to average (and above) in the longer range.
THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY:
A very cold day 20 years ago today as the high on November 9, 1995 was only 32.
