Surface high pressure quickly builds in across the Ohio Valley Region today while supplying plenty of sunshine and pleasant temperatures in the low-mid 70’s. Factor in light westerly winds and ample amounts of sunshine, a very nice Fall day takes over the Mountains.
Tonight, not a lot changes with the forecast as mostly clear skies continue. Overnight lows drop off in the mid-upper 40’s with some patchy fog development possible. A light jacket will be a handy item as you head out the door early Wednesday morning.
A strong upper-level low situated over the Great Lakes Region will eventually wobble southward across the Ohio Valley. As this happens, clouds increase Wednesday afternoon as winds pick up along with rain chances. In fact, scattered showers become a good bet into Wednesday evening as a dreary and cool night takes over. Highs Wednesday climb into the low-mid 70’s with lows around 50º.
The upper level low hangs around late week before lifting northeastward Saturday. Up until this point, cloud cover, cooler temperatures in the mid-upper 60’s, and shower chances are likely. Conditions dry out once again into early next week as plenty of sunshine and dry conditions return to the forecast. Highs through the extended period climb into the low-mid 70’s.
