It’s a new work week and we have plenty to talk about. After a beautiful Sunday, today will be “less nice” with clouds much of the day. Temperatures this morning are within a degree or two of 50 in most spots and temperatures this afternoon will be….pretty much the same. What you see is what you get today!
What about showers? I suspect most areas from Youngstown south and west will be dry. The farther north and east you go, the higher the likelihood of seeing a shower or two during the midday and afternoon. Some lake-effect rain shower activity, with a Lake Huron connection, will be aimed at far NE Ohio and NW PA.
A brighter day coming up on Tuesday (with clouds perhaps stubborn to break in Mercer County) and with a clear sky Tuesday night we probably have our coldest night of the season so far on the way. Lows of 27-32 will be common.
Our next chance for wet weather will be Wednesday evening/night (with a warm front) and Thursday (with a cold front). Getting a little concerned about some wet weather for Game 2 of the World Series in Cleveland.
The wettest part of Thursday is likely to be in the morning. A gusty breeze all day.
Friday looks good. Seasonably chilly for week 10 of high school football.
Rain probably returns with the next system on Saturday.
I think October will end and November will begin with a mild weather pattern. 6-10 day outlook:
We are about ONE week away from the issuance of my Winter 2016-2017 forecast. Stay tuned for an exact date!
