We didn’t end up getting much rain in the Cincinnati area…but that doesn’t mean the cold air isn’t coming! Welcome to your PM forecast discussion for Tuesday, September 18…
TONIGHT-WEDNESDAY NIGHT: The BIG change arrives tonight. The front will have cleared the area…this means that our skies will also clear. I do believe we drop into the lower 40’s, as it looks like the winds may drop off more than I expected this morning, so I’m going with a low around 43. Nice night for a bowl of chili (which might actually be my dinner). Wednesday, we’re set up for a nice, if slightly chilly, dry day…with highs around 68 and still a little of a breeze. Wednesday night will be similar to tonight with lows in the middle 40’s, as winds switch to the south.
THURSDAY/THURSDAY NIGHT: Thursday’s forecast is pretty much a carbon copy of Wednesday’s, except warmer on the aforementioned southerly winds. We’ll end up around 74. By Thursday night the next front starts its slow approach, so I’m increasing clouds just a little bit and going partly cloudy with lows also a bit warmer as a result…around 51.
FRIDAY-SATURDAY: This is the timeframe for our next system. Models have begun to agree on timing finally, so Friday afternoon through about sunset Saturday we stand a chance of rain, with otherwise partly to mostly cloudy skies. It still isn’t a high chance and right now I still don’t think it rains everywhere, so don’t cancel your weekend plans yet. Highs on Friday will reach 77 with good warm air advection. Saturday, I think we’re around 68, with the aforementioned chance of rain mainly the first half of the day. Lows will be around 53 on Friday night and then around 48 Saturday night.
SUNDAY-TUESDAY: I do believe we’re dry in this timeframe under partly cloudy skies. Highs will end up in the middle 60’s, around 66 on Sunday and the upper 60’s to near 70 on Monday and Tuesday. Lows in this period will likely be between 45 and 50.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along as I track the plunge of cooler air:
You don’t necessarily need to follow those links as there are widgets on the site — but if for some reason one of those Facebook and/or Twitter widgets on the right side breaks, that’s why I include the links here. (Note: Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if the widgets do break so I can notify WordPress.)
NEXT DISCUSSION: Wednesday and Thursday will be quite fluid, as I’m once again busy at home and, as if that wasn’t enough, with getting my team set for the Spina Bifida walk (check last Wednesday morning’s post if you aren’t aware). So, I’ll endeavor to get the forecast out on a 5 AM/5 PM schedule on Wednesday and Thursday — but I make no promises about those times especially Thursday night. So, till tomorrow morning take care and stay warm!
