Dialing It Up #NWOhioWx #Wx #OHwx

218 PM Radar Satelitte

The regional radar and satellite view this afternoon shows a very nice setup across Northwest Ohio. Skies are generally partly cloudy, with the cloud cover increasing some due to the heating of the day.

218 PM Temperatures

As a result, temperatures are responding quite well. For the most part, temperatures this hour are in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Expect the temperatures to rise a few more degrees before evening.

Mainly clear skies are forecast for tonight, with low temperatures dropping back into the lower 50s. Mother’s Day tomorrow and Monday are simply looking sensational. Plenty of sunshine, along with high temperatures rising into the middle 70s.

Temperatures will continue to go up as we head into the first part of next week. High temperatures in the 80s are not out of the question. This will be especially true heading into Tuesday & Wednesday.

There will be scattered chances for showers and thunderstorms through portions of next week. The rainfall amounts are forecast not to add up to much. Generally 1/4″ to 1/2″ of rain is forecast during the next seven days. As a side note, while it should remain fairly calm here, the Central and Southern Plains could easily heat up, in terms of the severe weather potential. That is where the most rainfall forecast will be focused.

More Like Fall Than Spring #NWOhioWx #Wx #OHwx

While it is rather cool this hour, there is brilliant blue sky & plenty of sunshine. Temperatures late this afternoon range from the lower to middle 50s. Numerous frost advisories and freeze warnings are currently in effect for tonight. With the sky clearing out, along the wind becoming light & variable, temperatures will fall to near/below freezing before sunrise Monday. Upper 20s to lower 30s are forecast for tonight.


Another piece of good news is that the flood waters from this past weekend are receding. The Blanchard River at Findlay crested yesterday afternoon over a foot over flood stage. Usual spots along the Blanchard are still flooded. Those flood waters will recede as well through the next day or two.


Another part of the weather puzzle this week will be the temperatures. They will be running near to below normal through this entire week. At times this week it will be feeling more like Fall than Spring. There will be many opportunities this week for frost, as is the risk for tonight.

Another factor this upcoming week is that of the amount of rainfall forecast. Total precipitation for the next seven days will average only around 0.50″-0.75″. That is a far different story than this past weekend.

Storm Filled Weekend Ahead #NWOhioWx #OHwx #Wx

604 PM EDT Weather Radar & Satellite

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.

Severe Weather Risk Tuesday


Relatively Warm:  For this time of year, it is a very pleasant Sunday afternoon in Northwest Ohio. The wind outside today will definitely get your attention, at 10-20 MPH with higher gusts. Tonight will feature dry weather, with low temperatures dropping into the middle 20s.

The continued push of warmer air is forecast to continue into Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures by Tuesday are forecast to be well into the 50s, with the outside chance of a few locations approaching 60°.


SEVERE WEATHER RISK TUESDAY: A strong area of low pressure is forecast to develop Monday Night and Tuesday in the Lower Great Lakes. That will bring a strong cold front through Northwest Ohio. While the severe weather risk for Tuesday is not as high as down by Dayton and Cincinnati, a few severe thunderstorms can not be ruled out across the region either.


Coverage of the showers and thunderstorms will increase through the day Tuesday. The main severe weather risk will be from damaging straight line winds. A few reports of large hail is not out of the question either.

EXTENDED: After the low pressure area moves away from Northwest Ohio, colder air will begin to move in. Colder air will be moving in from Wednesday through Friday. Another push of warmer air is possible next weekend. Scattered rain and snow chances are noted through next weekend. 

Stay tuned on the developing severe weather risk for Tuesday here on the Blog…

Cold Night Ahead For Northwest Ohio #OHwx










COLD AND CLEAR: It is a seasonably chilly early Friday evening across Northwest Ohio. Temperatures are running in the middle to upper 20s.












Skies are clearing out this evening across Northwest Ohio. There is still some snow cover shown here on the visible satellite over Southern Lower Michigan. A clean scan on weather radar is noted as well this hour. Temperatures are forecast to drop steadily tonight as the sky will remain mainly clear. Low temperatures are forecast to drop into the lower and middle teens before Sunrise on Saturday.

WARMING UP THIS WEEKEND: A push of warmer air will be making its move across Northwest Ohio this weekend, and into early next week. This weekend will be featuring temperatures that will be somewhat above normal. High temperatures in the middle 30s to lower 40s are possible by Sunday and Monday.
























A surge of warm air is forecast to move into Northwest Ohio by Tuesday Morning/Afternoon. That will be in response to a deepening area of low pressure centered around the Chicago area. The warm temperatures should keep most of the precipitation in the form of rain. By Wednesday, most of the precipitation for the most part will transition to snow. It is too early to determine if any accumulation of the snow is possible. Stay tuned.

By the end of next week, high pressure will begin to move back into Northwest Ohio. That will provide quiet weather and much colder temperatures.
