High pressure settling overhead has turned winds enough, so that we’re saying goodbye to the lake effect clouds we had during Tuesday, and we’ll see mainly clear skies tonight. Temperatures should have no trouble dropping back into the mid 30s. There should be some patchy frost as you head out the door Wednesday morning.
As high pressure slides to our southeast Wednesday, winds will shift into a moderating southerly flow. There is an expanding area of mid-level cloudiness over the Ohio Valley late Tuesday, and some of those clouds will mix with sunshine Tuesday afternoon. Despite the cool morning temperatures, temperatures should be able to rebound into the mid and upper 60s for the mid-week.
A storm system entering the Pacific NW late Tuesday will settle into the northern Plains later Wednesday and Thursday. This storm is forecast to cut-off from the steering winds of the jet stream, so it will only slowly wobble eastward for the end of the week. For us, this will mean another mild day Thursday, with gusty south winds. Right now, it looks like most of Thursday will be dry, with rain showers arriving toward sunset Thursday, or more likely Thursday night. As the storm mentioned above slowly moves over us this weekend, the weather will remain showery, and temperatures will be a little cooler. Improving weather Sunday hinges upon that storm moving out of here. That is something we’ll be keeping an eye on the next couple of days.
