WEDNESDAY: Overall, dry conditions will dominate the region the next few days as a surface cold front swings through. Cooler and comfortable air will start to funnel in as well, keeping temperatures slightly below average. Muggy levels will be high early on but then slowly dropping throughout the afternoon and evening, thanks to a cold front passing by. A few rain showers could pop up later this afternoon, but most of us will remain dry for the next few days. Sky coverage will be partly cloudy, meaning skies will have a few more clouds in them compared to full sunshine. The hazy skies are likely to clear out thanks to that cold front. The air quality will be unhealthy for those with respiratory diseases and asthma, so take it easy if you plan to be outside. High temperatures will drop down to the lower 80s if not upper 70s which is slightly below average. Tonight, skies will begin to clear ahead of high pressure building in. Low temps will drop to the upper 50s. You may be able to turn the AC off and open up the windows.
THURSDAY: High pressure will build back into the region, setting up a mainly dry day for the Ohio Valley. Mostly sunny skies will allow for a pretty nice day if you want to plan any outdoor activities. High temperatures will be back near 80 degrees and dew point values will be very comfortable. A perfect day to cut the grass and be outdoors.
FRIDAY: Through the morning hours we will see partly cloudy skies and dry weather. As our next weather maker approaches, rain chances look to increase as we head farther along in the afternoon and evening. Areas of the valley will remain dry thanks to the scattered nature of the rain showers. High temperatures will be back in the lower 80s.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy with a chance for some rain showers. No need to cancel outdoor activities, but you will probably have to dodge a few raindrops later in the day. High temperatures return to the mid 80s.
SUNDAY: Another day where clouds will dominate the skies. Rain showers will look to stay around as well throughout the Ohio Valley. High temperatures hover in the mid to upper 80s.
MONDAY: A mixture of sun and clouds with some patchy showers expected as well. High temperatures look to be nearing the upper 80s. Here is the high heat for late summer.
TUESDAY: Sunshine and blue skies look to return. High temperatures are expected to soar near 90 degrees as well. A good day to cool off by the pool.
