Yep. Still wet. The upper-level low that's been plaguing us for the past couple of days seems to be enjoying itself in Ohio. Apparently, it's never heard the old saying about houseguests and fish. We'll have to continue slogging through showers for the next few days.
THURSDAY NIGHT: cloudy, sctd. showers and thunderstorms, low 57.
FRIDAY: mostly cloudy, sctd. showers and a few storms, high 71.
SATURDAY: mostly cloudy, showers and storms, high 70.
SUNDAY: partly cloudy, some sunshine, some sctd. showers, high 70.
MONDAY: partly cloudy and mild, high 73.
The upper-level low is stuck. It has moved out of the influence of the jet stream and it's trapped almost directly over us. Ugh. CMH collected 0.78" of rain yesterday. The showers have been a bit more spotty today.
The NAM and the GFS are in pretty good agreement about the placement of the low into Saturday. Longer term, the ECMWF and the GFS agree on the low's northward movement on Sunday. Thank goodness. It should lift out of here by Monday and let some sunshine dry us out.
Plan on taking rain gear to the 'Shoe on Saturday!
Also, the models are following Hurricane Matthew and strengthening it as it moves through the Caribbean. The GFS brings it over eastern Cuba Monday night into Tuesday; the ECMWF holds it off the strike until later Tuesday.
