Tracking the April Showers

Scattered showers remain in the forecast tonight, with on and off showers expected tomorrow. Furthermore, we are seeing a big swing in our temperatures over the next few days. Check out all the details...

A line of showers passes through tonight (before midnight), with thunderstorms mainly staying confined to our northern extents. Later on, after a cold front passes, we will see wind gusts reaching up to 35 MPH in our region. Temperatures will cool down into the 40s with just some spotty light showers.


Then, a chance of morning drizzle will pass through our region (upper panel). This chance is highest for southern Ohio. Most of tomorrow will be dry, before another disturbance brings a chance of late evening showers. (lower panel). Rainfall amounts will be small.  

Meanwhile, the aforementioned cold front will make conditions cooler for tomorrow…

Temperatures drop below the freezing point at the 850mb level tomorrow (upper panel). This is indicated by the white line and blue colors sketched over our area. This translates to highs in the 50s tomorrow afternoon. Luckily, this cool down will be short lived, with a strong warm-up heading our way on Thursday (lower panel). Temperatures will pull into the 70s due to the southwesterly flow being established that day (as shown above).

While Thursday will be sunny and pleasant, Friday brings yet another chance of showers (especially in the morning)…

This rain chance is due to a cold front passage. Fortunately, the cool down will not be as strong as our last cold front passage. Temperatures will drop only a couple degrees Friday afternoon before rebounding over the weekend.


Enjoy the rest of your Monday!
