Technical Forecast Discussion
Short Term (Sunday 5/14/2023 through Thursday 5/18/2023)
We are seeing the remnants of a decayed low pressure center with a slight chance for rain lingering into Monday, where we can see mostly cloudy skies. After a brief chance for rain and a slight temperature drop on Tuesday with a shortwave disturbance, we will see high pressure begin to settle in, allowing for those skies to open up. As a result, overnight temperatures will climb well into the low 40s due to escaping heat with the lack of overnight cloud coverage. Daytime highs will climb through the week, peaking in the upper 70s on Thursday. Overall, once we ride out the effects of that early week disturbance, we are looking at sunny skies and warming temperatures!
Long Term (Thursday 5/18/2023 through Sunday 5/21/2023)
As of now, we are tracking a low pressure center to approach Southeast Ohio as soon as Friday with developing low pressure out of the North. We are looking at a squall line of precipitation with the chance for these to develop into thunderstorms impending available CAPE. We will see lingering effects from this system throughout the entire weekend as the chance for rain continues through Saturday which will make for a rather dreary weekend. We will see Sunday as a day to dry out with mostly sunny skies.
