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.
