Showers on the Way Tonight/Early Monday
The summer weather that occurred earlier this month has now faded away. True Fall like weather has become the main weather feature for the past several days. That will continue for the foreseeable future. This evening, temperatures are mainly in the middle 50s across Northwest Ohio. Cloud cover is spreading into the region. Radar this evening shows a clear scan.
Showers are in the forecast for the overnight hours, and into the morning hours on Monday. The latest models continue to indicate that the heaviest rainfall should remain south of the region during this time period. By Monday afternoon, skies should begin to clear out. That will set the stage for cold temperatures Monday Night.
With clearing skies for Monday Night, there is the distinct possibility for the first widespread frost of the Fall season (possible freeze as well). Low temperatures by Tuesday morning could easily dip down into the lower 30s across the region. More rural areas could see lows in the upper 20s Tuesday morning.
The overall weather pattern this upcoming week should remain fairly quiet. Temperatures will be at, or below normal, through the next seven days. Fall colors should begin to come out even more this week, and into next week.
We will be doing these blog posts once a day, in addition to the regular updates on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. Have a good evening!
