Happy Hump Day and Star Wars Day (May the 4th Be With You)!
A pretty decent Wednesday on the way. By looking at the radar this morning you may think I am crazy:
Looks like a wall of water heading our way. BUT! This band of showers will have a hard time making it into far eastern Ohio and western PA. That said, there can be spotty showers later this afternoon and evening. 15 hour futurecast:
Hourly chance for rain:
A seasonable day today.
The showers will make a southward push tonight but we expect tomorrow to be pretty cloudy with a little rain at times. Temperatures will be on the cool side as a result.
Rain totals over the next couple of days should average 0.25″-0.50″.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND
This 3-day stretch will be pretty nice overall. Friday will feature a mix of sun and clouds.
Saturday looks warmer and we should see temperatures push into the 70s. Timing of the next front is pretty good in that the showers and storms will come mostly after dark Saturday night.
There might be some gusty thunderstorms with this front.
Mother’s Day still looks like a winner although it will be cool-ish with highs in the lower 60s.
Pretty typical May weather (average highs in mid-May are in the upper 60s) looks likely in the 8-14 day period.
