Thursday, December 13
There is an extensive ridge of high pressure that is stretched across the Eastern half of the Nation. There is a developing LPS (Low Pressure System) North of the Midwest that is gaining strength and moving toward the Great Lakes Region.
This ridge of high pressure that is anchored over the area is situated from the NE U.S. to SW, across the Ohio River Valley and into SE Texas. Much drier air has filtered into affected areas. During the next 24 hours, this system will begin to break down and move to the East.
Fair weather will continue today with temperatures rebounding under mostly sunny skies. Afternoon highs will climb to near 60. The surface high pressure system will continue to meander to the East through Friday. Winds today will be out of the East, becoming Southerly by Friday.
This will bring moderation of temperatures with lows ranging in the 30's tonight. By Saturday morning, lows will be about 20 degrees warmer ranging from the mid 50-s to the lower 60-s.
For the rest of the day,
Expect sunny skies and very little cloud cover. Temperatures will remain cool and only climb into the upper 50-s and lower 60-s with a light wind. Overnight, lows will drop back into the 30-s with a light and variable wind.
For the rest of the 7day planner
A warming trend will develop as this high pressure slowly shifts to the East and Southerly winds return to our area. This high pressure moving East will also bring gradually increasing clouds to the forecast on Friday. Followed, by increasing rain chances on Saturday. Shower and thunderstorm chances will persist throughout the weekend a another piece of energy moves through after the initial front. So, through the beginning of the work week, we will see elevated rain chances.
TODAY...Starting with temperatures below Freezing. Otherwise, sunny skies and seasonable peak temperatures. Highs 57-63. East wind 2-10 mph.
THURSDAY NIGHT...Clear sky and not as cold. Lows 31-38.
