As expected, severe weather was not a problem for the Valley last night/early this morning. There were many reports of trees down, flooding and tornadoes from Illinois to West Virginia.
Beneficial rain did fall in the area, mainly from Youngstown south. Those with browning lawns in Trumbull and Mercer counties were not so lucky.
This morning it is pretty cloudy and muggy. Showers were to our south as of this writing (9:11am).
We expect there to be hit-or-miss showers through midday or early afternoon today. A thunderstorm can’t be ruled out. Hi-res simulated radar:
A nice evening on the way with decreasing clouds. The lower dewpoint air that is to our northeast will mix in and it will feel less muggy late today and tonight.
FRIDAY AND WEEKEND
Friday a wave of low pressure will scoot by to our south and this will result in more clouds than it looked like there would be previously. A touch of rain can’t be ruled out, mainly south of Rt 224.
Look for a hot and dry weekend. Dewpoints will come up enough on Sunday that it may be noticeable. Highs Sunday near 90. Hit the pool!
NEXT FRONT MONDAY MORNING
Looks like the next cool front will be a weak one. A couple of showers and storms late Sunday night into Monday morning and then pretty warm to hot again Monday afternoon.
A more comfortable air mass looks to arrive as we close out June. After that, back to the warm stuff although no July heat waves (90+ for a few days) seem likely…at least early in the month.
