Good morning and welcome to your Friday morning forecast for October 19, 2012! Let’s get right into it as there are changes to the forecast.
TODAY/THIS EVENING: Okay, I knew we couldn’t rule out the rain chance mainly north of us. Now, however, it looks like a very good chance of rain today areawide as the low and the best dynamics will be further south than I thought. I have to increase that probability to about 90 percent today, especially from the mid-morning onward. With clouds and rain showers, I believe we will not see 55 today. Some spots north of the loop may be lucky to hit 50, especially the further north you go! I think most of us are in the low 50’s. That rain should continue this evening before diminishing.
OVERNIGHT/SATURDAY: I have to, unfortunately, put rain BACK into the Saturday forecast. Here’s the good news: For most of the Metro area and much of NKY, I am not too concerned about a rain chance for Saturday afternoon. Could your morning activities be a bit on the wet side? Yes…and that’s especially true northeast of town. For folks in the southwest, we’re talking Carrollton, Owenton, Sparta, Vevay, Madison, and maybe Corinth in Grant County, you may be dry by 7 AM Saturday. If you are in the US 52 corridor, along and 20 miles either side of a line from Batesville to Downtown Cincinnati to Maysville, it may take until 10:00 AM. For the far northeast parts of our area, it might be until noon. So a slow clearing SW to NE. Lows tonight will drop to the mid 40’s, with highs tomorrow still struggling to the upper 50’s.
SUNDAY-THURSDAY: At this point, it looks like a long dry stretch will commence. Highs will warm from 65 on Sunday to the lower and mid 70’s Monday through Thursday. So, a nice stretch of weather is on tap, we just need to get through today and tomorrow.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along as I track the low, and occasionally provide traffic updates:
NEXT UPDATE: Your next update will be this evening. Also, a HEADS UP: Tomorrow morning’s update will go up VERY early, as I am going to be heading downtown to work the Cincinnati Half-Marathon as a course volunteer. Until then, take care!
