A huge trough and cold front in the Mississippi Valley will move east into the Ohio Valley today. The front is moving southeasterly through the state this afternoon and evening. This is a Storm Team 4 Weather Alert Day. Expect showers, some heavy downpours, and thunderstorms in our unstable atmosphere. Isolated storms could be severe with damaging, gusty winds as the primary threat. Minor flooding and ponding may also occur. A quarter to a half inch of rain is expected.
Showers and thunderstorms will taper off this evening as the front moves southeast and out of Central Ohio. Tonight it will become partly cloudy, less windy and cooler. The low will be in the mid-50s.
The weekend looks beautiful albeit much cooler. Canadian high pressure will build into the region delivering deep, blue skies and bright sunshine. High temperatures will be around 70 with morning lows around 50 through Monday. It will warm back up into the 80swith our next chance of rain Wednesday.
I hope you have a great weekend!!
