It’s starting out frosty this morning, but get ready for a warm stretch and maybe one more chance to break out the shorts! Welcome to your forecast for Sunday, October 21, 2012!
TODAY-WEDNESDAY: Dry weather commenced yesterday, and a warmup will likewise begin today. Highs will warm from 65 later today to the lower and mid 70’s Monday through Wednesday with lows slowly climbing from the upper 30’s this morning to the upper 40’s by the time we hit midweek. A FROST ADVISORY was issued by the Wilmington, OH NWS office and remains in effect until 9:00 AM.
THURSDAY-SATURDAY: This is up in the air, but it looks like our next front will be moving in late Thursday. Some questions remain on timing, so for now I’m going to leave a chance of rain in on Thursday night and into Friday. Before that, we’re still dry most of Thursday with highs in the 70’s. Highs on Friday will fall back to the low 60’s and Saturday may do the same.
LONGER RANGE OUTLOOK: Looking ahead, it sure looks like a major blast of cold air will move in after next weekend. Both the European and GFS forecast models are trying to bring a frigid (by October standards) air mass in here. If they’re right, and I caution that this is so far out my confidence in verifying is extremely low, much of the US is in the freezer around Halloween. Highs in the 40’s may be all we can do and maybe snowflakes north of us? Stay tuned and I’ll fine tune this as we close in on that time frame.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along as I watch our skies and occasionally provide traffic updates:
NEXT UPDATE: My next update on the blog will be tomorrow morning before 9:00 AM (I won’t make any promises about an exact time). Until then, enjoy the second half of your weekend!
