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…

refcmp_uh001h.us_mw

refcmp_uh001h.us_mw (1)

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.

refcmp-us_mw

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

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.

Great Weather to Start the Week

CODNEXLAB-1km-Indiana_Ohio.vis.20150913.1915-100-100-raw

PLEASANT AFTERNOON : While it is a cool afternoon across the Findlay and Hancock County area, temperatures are very comfortable. Currently, the temperatures are in the middle to upper 60s. Fair weather cumulus clouds have developed as well. That is due to the daytime heating across the area.

CODNEXLAB-1km-Indiana_Ohio.rad.20150913.1930-100-100-raw

RADAR CHECK : The afternoon weather radar shows no precipitation across the local area. In fact, not one drop of rain to be found on radar across the area.

QUIET NIGHT : A very pleasant, and quiet night, is in the forecast. High pressure that is currently anchored in the Central Appalachian Mountains is the reason. Temperatures tonight will be chilly one more time. Low temperatures are forecast to drop back into the middle 40s for tonight.

GREAT WEATHER STRETCH : The start to the work week will feature plenty of sunshine on Monday. That will last all the way through Thursday. High pressure to our east is forecast to remain anchored over the Carolinas. Temperatures during the day time are forecast to range from the middle 70s for highs on Monday, up to the middle 80s by Thursday. Overnight low temperatures are forecast to range from the lower 50s Monday Night to the lower and middle 60s Thursday Night.

NEXT CHANCE FOR RAIN : Friday looks to bring the next chance for rainfall as a surface front is forecast to move through the area. Rain chances look to continue into most of next weekend. High temperatures are forecast to top out in the lower to middle 80s Friday-Sunday. Low temperatures are forecast to drop back into the lower and middle 60s Friday Night-Sunday Night.

Pleasant Stretch of Weather Ahead #Findlay #OHwx #Ohio

CODNEXLAB-1km-Indiana_Ohio.vis.20150820.2030-100-100-raw

VISIBLE SATELLITE PICTURE: The cold front moved through the Findlay area earlier today. That allowed for clearing of the skies. By afternoon, plenty of sunshine was evident across the area. At this hour, the visible satellite picture over the Findlay and Hancock County area showing fair weather cumulus clouds overhead. Temperatures at early evening are very much Fall-like, in the lower to middle 70s across the area.

START TOWARDS A GREAT END TO THE WORK WEEK: High pressure is starting to settle into the area this evening. That will allow for great sleeping weather, and mainly clear skies as well. Low temperatures tonight are forecast to fall back into the lower 50s. Do not be surprised if the more rural areas across Hancock County drop back into the upper 40s by sunrise Friday.

TROJAN FOOTBALL WEATHER: The daytime hours on Friday will feature sunny skies across the area, with mainly clear skies in the forecast for Friday Night. It will be a very comfortable night for the Findlay Trojans football game at Donnell Stadium. Temperatures at kickoff look to fall back into the lower 70s. By the end of the games, temperatures are forecast to fall back through the 60s, and possibly into the upper 50s. By Sunrise Saturday, low temperatures are forecast to fall back into the lower and middle 50s.

THE WEEKEND: The majority of the upcoming weekend will feature plentiful amounts of sunshine, along with temperatures warming back to seasonable averages. A cold front is forecast to move in late Sunday afternoon. That will offer the chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Those chances will continue into Sunday Night.

High temperatures Saturday and Sunday are forecast to reach into the lower and middle 80s. Low temperatures Saturday night are forecast to drop back into the middle 50s. With the passage of the cold front Sunday night, temperature are forecast to drop back into the lower and middle 50s.

NEXT WEEK: A strong area of high pressure, just to the west, will be the main weather feature through the remainder of the seven day forecast period. That will result in the wind flow being from the north and west. Plenty of sunshine can be expected, along with some fair weather cumulus clouds in the afternoon hours.

Temperatures through the middle of next week will be pleasant. High temperatures are forecast to reach into the upper 70s and lower 80s. Low temperatures at night are forecast to fall back into the middle 50s overall. Get out and enjoy this nice stretch of weather for late August!

Storms for Wednesday #Findlay #OHwx #Ohio

The weather across the Findlay area today featured plenty of sunshine, along with seasonably warm temperatures for August. Temperatures currently in the Findlay area are in the lower to middle 80s. It is humid due in part to the wind being from the south…

CODNEXLAB-1km-Indiana_Ohio.vis.20150818.2307-100-100-raw

SATELLITE CHECK: Looking at this evening’s visible satellite, skies are mainly clear across the Findlay area and Hancock County. Cloud cover will begin to move in from the west tonight. This will be due in part to showers and thunderstorms that are currently in progress across much of Illinois.

KIWX 1

 

RADAR CHECK: Not much occurring on weather radar tonight across the Findlay Area…

TONIGHT’S FORECAST: For the remainder of tonight, an increase in the cloud cover is in the forecast. Temperatures will be warm. Plus, it will be humid as well. Overnight low temperatures are forecast to drop back into the middle and upper 60s.

day2otlk_1730

SEVERE POTENTIAL FOR WEDNESDAY: Wednesday will be featuring warmth and humidity levels that are fairly high. A strong low pressure area is forecast to move across the Northern Great Lakes through the day will bring chances for showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Wednesday Night. As of right now, the Findlay and Hancock County area are only included in the marginal risk for severe weather, as defined on this afternoon’s Day 2 outlook from the Storm Prediction Center. However, given the strengthening of the low pressure area, along with some clearing of the skies occurring during the day, that will in part increase the severe thunderstorm risk. Do not be surprising if our area is included in a Slight Risk for Wednesday. 

There is the potential for two rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms Wednesday and Wednesday Night. The first round looks to be occurring during the late afternoon and early evening. Round number two looks to happen overnight with the passage of the strong cold front. As of now, the primary severe weather hazard looks to be from damaging straight-line winds. However, a tornado or two can not be ruled out either. 

Before the thunderstorms Wednesday, the temperatures will be rising into the lower and middle 80s for highs. Overnight low temperatures are forecast to fall back into the lower and middle 60s. The frontal passage, as of now, looks to occur shortly after sunrise on Thursday. As a result, cooler and drier air will be moving in.

REMAINDER OF WORK WEEK: From Thursday through Friday afternoon, high pressure will be moving into the area. That will relax the weather quite a bit. Plentiful amounts of sunshine can be expected during the daytime on Thursday and Friday. Clear skies are in the forecast for Thursday Night and Friday Night. High temperatures Thursday will feel Fall like, in the lower to middle 70s. Friday’s high temperatures will be a bit warmer, with middle 70s expected. Low temperatures Thursday Night and Friday Night are forecast to drop back into the lower and middle 50s.

THE WEEKEND, AND INTO NEXT WEEK: Fantastic weather can be expected for the upcoming weekend. Plenty of sunshine during the day, along with comfortable temperatures. High temperatures are forecast to top out in the middle to upper 70s. Saturday Night will feature mainly clear skies, with low temperatures falling back into the lower and middle 50s. Sunday night will feature a cold front passing through the region. That will offer low end chances (30 percent) for showers and thunderstorms. The start of next week will feature another high pressure area moving in. That will bring in another push of cooler and drier air. Once again, high temperatures the beginning of next week will be dropping back into the middle 70s.

Severe Weather Possible by Mid-Week #Findlay #OHwx #Ohio

KIWX 2

 

RADAR UPDATE: Weather radar this Sunday evening across the local area shows mainly quiet weather. There are a few passing showers in western Paulding County currently. Those will fade away in the next hour or so as we lose the heating of the day.

CODNEXLAB-2km-IL_IN.ir.20150817.0015-100-100-raw

SATELLITE CHECK: Mainly clear skies are featured tonight across the Findlay area and Hancock County. It is seasonably warm as well. Temperatures currently are in the lower 80s. For the remainder of tonight, mainly clear skies can be expected. Low temperatures are forecast to drop back into the middle and upper 60s.

WEATHER TO START THE WORK WEEK: Warm and humid weather will highlight the beginning of the work week. Periods of sunshine can be expected as well. There will be chances for showers and thunderstorms Monday through Tuesday Night. High temperatures Monday and Tuesday are forecast to top out in the lower to middle 80s. Low temperatures Monday and Tuesday Night are forecast to drop back into the middle and upper 60s.

SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL WEDNESDAY: Wednesday will one more time offer warm and humid conditions. Also, a strong cold front will be moving into the area. With favorable wind conditions and plenty enough of surface based convective available potential energy (SBCAPE), the potential exists for strong to severe thunderstorms. That threat will continue into Wednesday Night, and early Thursday. As of this moment, the dominant severe weather mode looks to be from damaging straight line winds. The forecast will continue to be fine-tuned during the next couple of days to analyze the threat.

THE REST OF THE WEEK, WEATHER WISE: The strong cold front will be moving through the Findlay area early in the day on Thursday. Cooler air will be on the way in, along with the wind direction being from the north and northwest. While there will be a slight drop-off in the temperatures, the weather will be more comfortable through the end of the work week. As the weekend approaches, warmer temperatures will be making their return. That will be due in part to the wind being from the south and southwest. Another cold front is forecast to move through the area by Sunday afternooon. That looks to bring back shower and thunderstorm chances.

Have a good evening!
