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.
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.
