Clouds build in as we head into the afternoon

Weather

7-Day Forecast:

MONDAY: A gorgeous start to the day will start to turn a bit more dull into the afternoon as clouds return. There is a chance for an isolated shower for areas of the Ohio Valley with widespread rain not looking to occur. This means that some areas of the region will stay dry where as others could see some falling rain drops. High temperatures will be back in the lower 70s. That is about 10 degrees above our normal high for the beginning of April, which is 57 degrees. As we head into the overnight hours, we have a better chance of seeing some showers as a stationary boundary hovers from the upper Great Lakes to the Ohio Valley. Not everyone will see rain, but the chance is there. Overnight lows will be very mild, in the low 50s. Winds will not play a factor, blowing from the southwest around 5 mph.

TUESDAY: Patchy cloud coverage in the morning hours will become more widespread later in the day. There is a chance for another round of afternoon/evening showers with a stray storm possible. Again, some areas will remain dry and others could see some falling rain drops. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s. This will be the prominent pattern for most of the week, so enjoy the warm air.

WEDNESDAY: A dry day is likely for the midpoint of the work-week as we get ready for our next weather maker that will swing in from the west. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s for our high and we will be under partly cloudy skies.

THURSDAY: The next weather maker will bring widespread rain into the Ohio Valley. I expect to see a good soaking rain from start to finish with a chance for some rumbles of thunder. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s and we will be spoiled with the warmer than average temperatures all the way into the weekend.    

FRIDAY: Cloudy conditions continue on, as well as some rain showers for the region. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s to low 70s for our high. At least it is staying warm, but it is Springtime.  

SATURDAY: The weekend is trending slightly soggy as well with the chance of seeing some rain showers. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s to low 70s.  

SUNDAY: The latter half of the weekend looks the same. A chance for some rain showers with high temperatures will be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
