PM Update: June perfection on borrowed time
Showers and storms Wed.; 80s should return after
Today's about as awesome as a June day gets in these parts. Low humidity, tons of sunshine and a light refreshing breeze have greeted all who step outside. With temperatures only slowly rising to the upper 70s, it almost feels like fall... Sadly, we lose today's brilliant sunshine on Wednesday as a low pressure passes by to the north, bringing with it another shower and thunderstorm threat. If you didn't get out last evening, do so this upcoming one!
Through Tonight: Another sweet evening with temperatures dipping through the 70s. Clouds should be on the increase near or after sunset and we'll end up mostly cloudy by morning. There could also be a shower or two by sunrise. Lows reach the mid-to-upper 50s in the suburbs locales and lower 60s downtown.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Wednesday still looks like the low point of the week, but I am cautiously optimistic we won't see as widespread rains as feared. The main batch of rain with a developing system is increasingly likely to pass to our north, leaving us with more of a scattered shower and thunderstorm threat. While I'd not expect big totals area-wide, some spots could still see briefly heavy rain, and the severe threat may be increasing, though clouds should limit heating and the overall risk somewhat. Highs probably reach the mid-70s or so.
Significant tornado: Before impacting this area on Sunday, the storm system responsible for East Coast tornado watches caused numerous tornadoes, including one that blasted through Wood County in Ohio. This tornado has been rated an EF4 on the tornado scale, and aerial photos indicate it was quite a beast. While this tornado was likely the most intense of the series, it was only one of over 50 tornadoes in the Midwest and Ohio Valley late Saturday into early Sunday.
