Technical Forecast Discussion
Short Term (Sunday 7/2 – Tuesday 7/4)
Tonight severe weather is expected for the region until midnight as we continue to feel the effects of the strong upper-level trough that has been impacting Ohio for the last few days. The upper-level trough will remain in our region through Monday evening, bringing a significant chance for rain tomorrow as well. However, severe thunderstorms are not expected as the trough will be mostly out of our region, at this time and much of energy needed for severe weather will depleted from the previous days of storms. Then a ridging pattern will move into our area Tuesday. Sunny skies and a warming trend will occur. Temperatures are expected to reach the upper 80s and low 90s as the surface high pressure builds and clear skies persist.
Long Term (Wednesday 7/5 – Saturday 7/8)
The ridge will continue to bring sunny skies, dry conditions, and warm temperatures until Saturday. Another low-pressure system will enter our region and with it bring a cold front with some drier air and chances of rain.
