After yet another damp, cool, dreary spring day yesterday a warm front will be to our north today (struggling mightily as been so often the case this spring) and milder air will flood into the region. This mild air will have a very short stay however. Anyways, back to today, there may be some morning fog as there is plenty of low-level moisture around.

It looks like then we should get some sun shining as the front gets far enough to the north. Winds will become west-southwesterly and usher in spring! However, as mentioned above, spring will be short lived as a cold front approaches the area by very late in the day or in the evening. This front will be accompanied by showers and thunderstorms late in the day or very early in the evening. Some of these thunderstorms may be rather feisty and I will not be shocked to see a watch box for the area.

With cold front about halfway across OH at this time, we are extending the window for a thunderstorm into the evening hours. The most likely time for one is probably between 3 and 7 p.m.

Winds will shift around to the northwest tonight behind the front and will be gusty and will usher in a return to normalcy for this part of the world, cooler and drier air with clouds breaking.

The cooler and drier trend will continue tomorrow, with the skies mainly clear and the winds continuing at moderate speeds out of the west-northwest with temperatures getting to near 65 as an afternoon high.

Much the same for Friday, on the cool side after a very chilly night where there will be frost not too far away from the city. A dry start with clouds on the increase throughout the day as the dome of high pressure retreats to the east of New England and the winds shift to a more moist direction, east-southeast. The front that slipped to our south as a cold front begins to approach the area as a warm front and this will cause the afternoon to be overcast and potentially rainy.

The weekend looks rather wet at times. The warm front will be to the north of the area and thus we could have a day with the possibility of a large temperature bust if the front ends up in a different position than what we are expecting at the moment.
