TONIGHT: Sunshine and blue skies across the Ohio Valley for the midpoint of the work-week. We were treated to a cooler, yet seasonable start with morning temperatures in the upper 50s. There were a few discrete pockets of fog along the Ohio River, but nothing too problematic. Cloud coverage started to increase as we approached lunchtime and stepped into the afternoon hours. Daytime highs were back in the upper 70s to low 80s with it feeling comfortable outside. Dew points were back in the refreshing category and likely going to stay that way for the next few days. Past dinner, we will stay with a few pockets of clouds before the clear out as we head into the overnight hours. Tonight, we will see mostly clear skies and less muggy conditions for the Ohio Valley. Overnight lows will be in the upper 50s to low 60s with winds blowing from the southwest around 5-10 mph.
THURSDAY: Happy September Ohio Valley, it is officially meteorological Fall! Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies for the ladder half of the week, daytime highs will be in the lower 80s. Another stunning day to be outdoors and soak up the sunshine and it will also feel comfortable to be outdoors. Weather will not be a factor for the Backyard Brawl in Pittsburgh Thursday night either.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy to end the week. Temperatures will sit in the mid to low 80s.
