MONDAY: Hopefully you were able to enjoy a fairly nice and quiet weekend because a more active weather pattern is likely as we head into the last full week of May. One thing you will feel a lot of this week is the mugginess. Dew point values will be in the 60s for the first half of the week, meaning the air will feel sticky. We will keep the chances for scattered rain showers into the afternoon hours with a stray thunderstorm or two. Not everyone will see rain from today’s event. High temperatures will top off in the upper 70s to low 80s for our high and winds will blow from the west around five mph. As we head into the overnight hours, we will stay mostly cloudy with an isolated shower lingering around. Temperatures will bottom out in the mid 60s.
TUESDAY: As we head into your Tuesday, we will stay mostly dry and free from rain showers. High heat is likely however, as temperatures will sore back into the upper 80s. Partly cloudy skies will be present in the Ohio Valley. Dew point values will stay, meaning the muggy air will as well.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny skies will return by mid-week. We will stay with temperatures in the lower 80s and rain showers are likely to develop as we head into the afternoon. A stray thunderstorm is also possible. Dew point values will stay in the muggy category.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny throughout the daytime hours. Rain showers look to hold off till early Friday morning. Temperatures will be in the low 80s for our high.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with a high chance for a steady, soaking rain. Temperatures will drop as colder and drier air will funnel in behind this incoming front. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60s for our high, which is cooler than average.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy as we head into the weekend. A comfortable air-mass will accompany us as well. We will stay active with the chance of some showers to develop in the afternoon. Temperatures will max out in the lower 70s.
SUNDAY: Patchy clouds and sun will be present as we end the weekend. Shower activity is likely to go up in the late afternoon/early evening. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s for our high.
