A cold start this morning as expected; some places had temperatures below 30 at the start of the day.
It’s going to be a struggle in the temperatures department today as clouds slowly thicken. We’ll see highs in the upper 40s….well below average. Meanwhile, a warm front is off to our west:
Ominous, right? Well a lot of that rain in western Ohio is going to have a tough time reaching the ground in NE Ohio and western PA this afternoon, thanks to dry air in the low levels of the atmosphere. That said, we will have a 20% chance in the forecast for this afternoon as someone might see a shower or sprinkle.
Overall, dry through this evening then rain will push in overnight. Hi-res futurecast:
The start of game 2 has been moved up to 7:08 this evening, a good move although the latest model trends suggest that an 8:08 start may have been ok too. Rain chances will increase quickly in Cleveland after 11:00.
Rain will be around late tonight and tomorrow morning with spotty residual showers in the afternoon. Temperatures will slowly fall with a chilly breeze tomorrow afternoon.
Rain totals will average 0.3″-0.5″.
A better day Friday with a cool, pleasant evening for football.
The weekend looks to start on a breezy, warmer note with a southwest wind. We have temperatures in the 60s in our forecast. Might be a shower late.
That front may stall overhead Sunday, leading to a chance for showers.
Warm to start next week then a retreat back to average looks likely.
