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…

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.

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.

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.

Look for the next weather update Wednesday Afternoon or Evening. Have a good rest of the evening!

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!
