A strong frontal boundry moved through the region this past weekend bringing showers and storms for many across the state. As the front tracked through the region, cooler and drier air filtered across the Commonwealth bringing very comfortable conditions for many. Monday morning brought an Autumn like feel about it as lows dipped down in the upper 50’s under clear skies. Temperatures rebounded nicely as highs topped out in the mid to upper 70’s as a few fair weather cumulus clous began to build by the early afternoon hours.
A strong ridge of High pressure situated just over the Ohio Valley region will continue to build and slide eastward over the next couple of days. This will allow temperatures to gradually warm by a couple degrees each day by mid-week.
Looking ahead for your Monday evening, expect any fair weather cumulus clouds to subside by sunset as cool, clear, and calm conditions are expected. Many could see one of the cooler nights that we’ve had in a while with temperatures expected to bottom out in the low to mid 50’s statewide. With the dominance of the high pressure aloft, Tuesday should be identical weather wise to your Monday. Highs are expected to be a few degrees warmer with temperatures reaching the low 80’s. Mostly sunny skies accompanied by a light northwest wind around 5 mph should make for another great weather day across the area.
Tuesday night: Cooler conditions expected once again with a low of 60 degrees. Expect mostly clear skies with a light southeast wind.
Wednesday: Another nice day with mostly sunny conditions. A few fair weather cumulus clouds expected by early afternoon. High: 85 degrees, Low: 60 degrees. Winds from the south around 5 mph.
