Storms Possible Early Next Week
It is still a very dry Saturday in Northwest Ohio. Although precipitation is showing on radar, the airmass is still too dry for any of it to reach the ground. Dewpoints much of today have been in the single digits to the lower teens, while the air temperatures has been in the upper 20s to lower 30s.
WARMING UP: Sunday and Monday will be featuring dry weather across the region, along with temperatures increasing. Sunday will feature high temperatures into the middle 30s. Monday’s high temperatures are forecast to climb into the 40s.
ACTIVE WEATHER RETURNS: The dry weather will not last long at all. A strong area of low pressure is forecast to develop generally in the Lower Great Lakes region, as shown here on the 12z NAM & 12z GFS. One of the things this storm could easily bring is strong gusty winds Tuesday.
Also, the amount of the Convective Available Potential Energy (CAPE) & the Energy Helicity Index (EHI) brings in the risk for possible strong thunderstorm activity, with potential of a few severe thunderstorms.
Much of Northwest Ohio has been included for the risk of severe thunderstorm activity Tuesday from the Storm Prediction Center. The main risks currently look to be from large hail, along with locally damaging winds. While the tornado risk is low, it is non-zero. We will continue to monitor the situation for Tuesday.
QUIETING DOWN: After the low pressure area moves away late Tuesday afternoon and evening, temperatures are forecast to trend to more of a quiet pattern. Some light snow is possible Tuesday evening as the wrap around moisture moves through. Otherwise, the next chance for any precipitation looks to be next weekend.
We will continue to monitor the situation for Tuesday through the next couple of days. Stay tuned.
