... A reinforcing cold front moves through tonight. Chilly high pressure next weekend.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... As of 125 AM Wednesday...
As the system that brought rain on Tuesday moves off to the northeast early this morning, drier air will move into the region. This will provide a dry day. With sunshine and fairly healthy warm air advection at 850 mb today, will see temperatures moderate a bit.
A reinforcing cold front will move through the area tonight. Moisture is fairly limited, so only have a small chance of showers.
SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/... As of 205 PM Tuesday...
Another cold front crosses late Wednesday night into Thursday, with the possibility of some light precipitation developing, mainly across the Mid Ohio River valley and southeast Ohio. This, along with another upper trough developing across the area Thursday into Friday, will lead to much cooler temperatures, with the possibility that many lowland locations will not make it out of the 60s on Thursday, with highs only in the 50s to lower 60s across the lowlands, and 40s higher terrain for Friday. Could see some patchy frost, particularly in valleys across the north and east late Friday night into Saturday.
LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 205 PM Tuesday...
High pressure to start the weekend, followed by another system late in the week into early next week. Southerly flow on Sunday out ahead of the system will result in slightly warmer temperatures, although still below normal for this time of year. System will slowly exit off to the east early next week with milder weather in its wake.
