Pattern Change

Today we'll have scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. It will be cooler than yesterday. Tomorrow, some patchy fog is possible, and we can't rule out a shower in the afternoon. Other than that, the weather will be great: seasonably cool, dry and mostly sunny. Saturday looks great, with even lower humidity, and no chances for showers.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moving through this evening is producing scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers. After the front moves through, a stray shower cannot be ruled out in the afternoon Friday.

Other than the stray afternoon showers on Friday and Sunday, this weekend looks great with seasonably cool temperatures, low humidity, and mostly sunny skies. This is due to a high pressure over the Ohio valley.

Monday will be the warmest day of the next week, because of an approaching cold front. This cold front will also increase the coverage of showers and thundershowers to widely scattered. After Monday, details become murky. Slightly cooler temperatures return, and isolated afternoon showers and thundershowers are possible through the rest of the forecast.
