Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 6:26PM


Tonight's weather map continues to be dominated by an upper-level low centered in the Ohio Valley. Cool air aloft will produce an almost spring-like dynamic atmosphere producing scattered showers and a few thunderstorms early this evening. Showers will diminish by late evening, though clouds remain into Friday morning with a stray lingering shower possible early. After that, it's clear sailing Friday afternoon through the rest of the 7-day forecast.

Forecast Discussion

If you thought the clouds Wednesday afternoon were "spring-like", that's makes you an astute observer. An upper-level low is located in the Ohio Valley; that's basically a cool-pool of air aloft. In this setup, we have more lift in the atmosphere producing photo-worthy cloud tops. The result for our weather will be a continuation of showers and thundershowers into the evening hours.

Tomorrow, the upper-level low slowly slides northwest into Indiana and eventually (Sunday) into Michigan before exiting the country. High pressure takes over the Eastern U. S. No front will reach us for the rest of the 7-day forecast. Friday has morning clouds with a stray, brief, light shower possible. Then clouds decrease setting us up for a glorious first weekend of October. Clear dry weather lasts at least through mid next week.

Friday through the middle of next week features temperatures 1-4 degrees above seasonal norms, but cooler than what we have had in through this warm/dry September.

In other news, Matthew in now a hurricane in the Eastern Caribbean. Matthew will continue to strengthen as it continues on a westward course for the next couple days. Thereafter, it is expected to take a right turn and head toward Cuba and the Bahamas this weekend. We'll wait and see what happens from there.
