I could be done with the short term forecast in one word; springy, but I can’t end it there. Today, we’re on the west side of a ridge of high pressure giving us a south/southeast wind. The main thing the south wind does for us, aside from cooling the coast slightly, is increase our humidity. It won’t be a massive wall that makes you sweat a ton but it’ll be enough to make it feel like spring. Temperatures through the heart of the week will climb into the middle 80s with nothing more than scattered cloudiness each afternoon. Overnight lows will be a bit on the warm side, but not terrible, around 60° each morning. We’ll be rain free until Thursday when our next front approaches from the northwest. Showers and storms will get going in the afternoon and likely last through midday Friday. It’s still a little too early to speculate on severe chances but most of the energy and atmospheric conditions that fuel storms will be racing north through Ohio; so current trends point to a minimal threat but stay tuned. The front is a quick mover; we’ll be clear and dry by Friday afternoon paving the way for another pleasant looking weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday will be near 80° with lows in the 50s.

Be safe and have a great Monday!
