A cloudy start to our Wednesday but I expect sunshine to bust through as we head deeper into the morning and midday hours. A seasonable day today with highs in the lower and middle 60s.
The weather is still quiet active in the middle of the country although severe weather will not be as common today as it was yesterday.
That storm system, in a weakened form, will track our way tomorrow. This will lead to a good chance for raindrops.
I suspect the wettest period will be the midday hours. The day should not be a total washout. Hourly odds of precipitation falling where you are (should say THURSDAY):
Temperatures may struggle Thursday. Some modeling has us barely into the lower 50s. Ignore the European model line (purple) as it is doing something funky.
Friday looks to stay cloudy and damp with an “inverted trough” setup over western PA/eastern OH. Can be a touch of rain at times.
Model rain totals through Friday:
Saturday remains the choice day of the weekend. We expect a mix of sunshine and clouds. Highs 60-64.
On Sunday….rain is looking likely. The GFS model (shown) is probably too far south with the rain. Get the grass mowed on Saturday.
We may emerge from the average/below-average pattern during the second week of May. Until then, don’t expect a lot of unusual warmth.
