Yesterday was an early taste of Summer, with high temperatures in the middle 80s. Today is a much different story. Temperatures have fallen back into the 50s and lower 60s. Wind direction has switched from south to west. In the short term, that is pulling in cooler air.
The weather should remain fairly quiet through the rest of tonight, along with much of the day on Friday. For Friday Night and into the weekend…
That will offer chances for showers/thunderstorms. There is some risk of severe thunderstorms Friday Night, with attendant risk of large hail. In this time period, the storms are forecast to be elevated. Saturday and Sunday will feature multiple rounds of showers/thunderstorms. The risk for some flooding is on the table as well.
Heading into next week, temperatures will return to being below normal. While there will be more tastes of Summer, some periods of cooler weather are still forecast. Stay with the Northwest Ohio Blog for the latest on the ever evolving weather.
