Today is a winner and easily the nicest day of the week. We’ll have sunshine in abundance with temperatures a couple of degrees above average. There will be a noticeable breeze as well. Highs:
A true autumnal air mass. Look how dry the air is….dewpoints in the 30s and 40s. You don’t see that in August!
HERE COMES THE UPPER LOW
From time to time an area of low pressure aloft “detaches” from the jet stream and “does it’s own thing”. We call these “cut off” upper-level lows. Well one of those is going to call Ohio and western PA home from tomorrow through at least the start of the weekend.
This means that our weather will be unsettled at times. Showers will visit on a few occasions Wednesday-Friday. There can be spotty afternoon thunderstorms on Wednesday as well. Cut-off lows are fickle and can do strange things sometimes. We’ll have to watch for “surprise” heavy bands of rain and even weak rotation in any storms. On the flip-side, pockets of dry air rotating around the low can give us extended periods where it is “not bad” out with some sunshine.
As the weekend arrives, this thing will still be in our hair so we have to allow for at least spotty showers Saturday. Sunday is the day it should start to move and there should not be much more than stray showers.
Next week looks warm for early October for everyone east of the Rockies.
I expect at least a couple or few days with highs 10 degrees above average.
