Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are dry today over an overwhelming majority of the state. Now, there is a little action that we need to watch near the Ohio River, but most of the rain and thunderstorms we are seeing through the day today stay south in KY and WV. Still, it bears watching and we can at least see some clouds building at times through the day in the far south. The rest of the state will be sunny, dry and pleasant. Tomorrow we see sun followed by increasing clouds. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be nosing into western Ohio by midnight tomorrow night and will then spread east from there across the state through the overnight and through Wednesday. Rain totals look to be from .25”-1.5” with 100% coverage. We all see rain tomorrow night through Wednesday. Thunderstorms will be needed to reach the upper end of the rain range, but we think where some potential for stronger thunderstorms Wednesday is. Thursday features mixed clouds and sun, but there is a chance of a few scattered to isolated shower in far southwest Ohio, near the Cincinnati area. Rain totals will be minor. Dry weather is in for the entire state Friday through the weekend. Thunderstorms develop overnight Sunday night in NW Ohio and will then move east across north central parts of the estate through Monday morning, ending up in NE Ohio by early to mid-afternoon. Most of this action stays north of US 30 until we get to Monday evening. Then, we see scattered showers sag south through Monday night and into Tuesday. We end up seeing .25”-.75” across 60% of the state when combining all action from midnight Sunday through Tuesday. We are dry Wednesday in all areas. For the extended period, we have scattered showers around for Thursday, July 5th. These will have only a .25”-.5” potential, but 70% coverage. Then a strong high-pressure dome moves in for the remainder of the forecast period, keeping us Sunny, dry and warm from the 6th through at least the 11th. Temps will be below normal today and tomorrow, but from Wednesday forward, we will see a move to above normal levels statewide. Overall, this pattern shows still timely moisture potential, but you notice each system is significantly smaller, has shorter duration and much less total precipitation than we have seen over the past 7 days. The map at right shows 10-day rain totals. Combine that with temps that rise quickly, and we will be looking at a much different forecast pattern for the start of July than what we saw for the month of June. Temps are likely not problematic but will look to stay above normal for most of the upcoming month.
