FORECAST DISCUSSION – Meteorologist Mackenzie Bart

Not as cold tonight but you’ll probably still want the extra blanket as we fall into the 50s overnight. A few high cloud building in but we will remain quiet and dry. Some places in the upper 40s by tomorrow morning but we should stay frost free.

Why has the last two weeks been so cool? The answer lies in the pattern in the northern Pacific Ocean. Persistent low pressure between the Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska has kept warmth across the western US and cooler temps in the eastern US. Coolest two week period in northern Ohio (9/22 to 10/3) since 2012!

Tomorrow looking the best of the next 8 days, with seasonable temperatures near and above 70. Find some time to get outside! That’s quickly thwarted by a strong cold front dropping out numbers nearly 20 degrees by Friday!

Best chance for scattered showers will be Thursday night through Friday mid-afternoon. Followed by a few lake effect rain showers Friday late afternoon, mainly in our snowbelt communities.
