Forecast 8/13-8/15 Some Rain Chances and Continued Cooler Temperatures

A line of showers has begun to develop off to the west. This line will move through later tonight bringing with it showers and thunderstorms. There are no warnings at this time and the main threat will be wind, heavy rain, and lightning.

More showers and thunderstorms are possible as the front and an area of low pressure make their way across the region. Destabilization from earlier peak through sunshine will help fire the additional storms.

A dry out is expected after midnight is expected. Skies will gradually clear Tuesday after the passage of the cold front with cool temperatures behind. Dry conditions are expected to persist into Wednesday with only a slight chance of storms in the pop up nature if we receive enough afternoon heating. High pressure will still be the most defining feature over the Ohio Valley into Wednesday. The next big chance for showers and storms will come Thursday as a warm front advances north over the area. The timing for showers and storms to fire would likely be in the late afternoon Thursday as daytime heating causes instability to increase across the area. 


Expected Temperatures and Conditions:
Tuesday: High 80, Low 65: Clearing skies throughout the day and a light wind from the southeast.

Wednesday: High 85, Low 70 Rain chances increasing throughout the day with winds shifting more southerly. 

NEXT UPDATE: 8/16/12
