A Few Evening Boomers

We'll have isolated thunderstorms to watch for this evening that have formed ahead of an upper-level low dropping into the Ohio River Valley. Thursday, a front associated with the Ohio Valley low moves through producing generally cloudy skies and scattered showers (maybe some thunder). The rain clears out Thursday evening, leaving us with a nice Friday, beautiful weekend, and dry weather well into next week.

Forecast Discussion

The weather map is busy. An old front is stalled over Western NC. An upper-level low is settling south into the Ohio Valley where it will remain for a 2-3 days. A surface low will be in the Indiana-Ohio vicinity today through Friday, and a front will swing across the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys passing through the Appalachians Thursday. After that, it's high pressure and clear sailing well into next week.

Partial sunshine and warm temps gave way to thunderstorms this afternoon. Isolated showers & thunderstorms will remain in the realm of possibility through this evening.

Expect more shower coverage Thursday as the front moves through. A thundershower is possible as well.

Friday and Saturday, the upper-level retrogrades slightly westward. With the front to our east, high pressure builds in from the west. The result will be an extended run of exceedingly pleasant weather centered on an absolutely gorgeous first weekend of October.

The Tropical Atlantic is about to spawn the next named storm, Matthew. Matthew will strengthen into a potent hurricane as it reaches the Eastern Caribbean and be south of Haiti and Cuba by early next week. We'll wait and see what happens from there.
