Calmer Weather, Isolated Showers and Unseasonably Cool Temperatures This Week

By David Saurer - New Philadelphia, Ohio | July 28, 2014

radarGood Monday to everyone. We dodged yet another bullet in the severe weather department over the weekend here in the Valley. The majority of the atmosphere was well worked over to provide a breakdown in the severity of the storms for Tuscarawas County.

Folks weren’t as  fortunate downstate below Interstate 70. Places like the West Virginia panhandle and into Kentucky/Western PA weren’t so lucky, where straight line winds and/or possible tornadoes did cause some structural damage. Trees and power lines definitely were damaged by high winds.

A much calmer forecast for the next few days, although, we will still be dealing with some stubborn leftover showers as northwesterly flow over the Great Lakes could swing a few of them into Tuscarawas County.

NEAR TERM through This Evening:

tusc2For the meantime, for your Monday forecast, we can expect the clouds to linger around for the most part as that surface low pressure will finally be ushering itself out of the region and into the Northeast/New England region. The back edge of the low will bring the lake effect enhancement of rain showers from Lake Erie into the forecast. These could manage to sneak into Tuscarawas County for the afternoon and evening. I left the forecast at about a 30-40% shot; some areas may not see any and remain dry, yet cloudy.

By mid-evening, we should start to see some clearing in the cloud deck and drier conditions. Much cooler air mass will begin to funnel in out of the northwest with a challenging possibility of seeing some record lows as some areas could end up in the upper 40s for the overnight low.

Regional 1

SHORT TERM FORECAST from Tuesday through Thursday:

PlannerThe upper level trough will continue to affect the Northeast and Great Lakes region for Tuesday. There is a low pressure center over Southern Hudson Bay will help to bring a bit of a moderation in temperatures, yet staying slightly below normal. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s during this time frame, and yet, isolated to scattered rain showers will still be a threat in the forecast for a few spots in the region.

Cold pool will settle over Northern Ohio to allow this stubborn pattern to persist for the majority of us. Thursday morning, we will see the cold pool finally dissipate to allow things to return to normal by then.


Regional 2

LONG TERM FORECAST from Thursday PM through Sunday:

7 DAYThis is a little tricky for the most part. The model guidance is suggesting the upper level trough to stick around for the extended period. There will be some help with moderation in temperatures from this trough to allow us to reach the 80 degree mark beginning on Friday.

The weekend is showing the trough beginning to undergo a slight strengthening; this will bring the return of stubborn rain showers and will also knock the temperatures back into the mid to upper 70s for Tuscarawas County. We expect a few shortwave disturbances to swing around the Great Lakes and Upper Ohio Valley to allow these stubborn clouds and showers in the forecast.

The main agenda will be, NO SEVERE WEATHER OR ANY SUMMER TIME HEAT in the meantime.

That wraps up the forecast summary for your Monday and the week ahead. Joe and I thank everyone for your support and trusting us as your local weather source for Tuscarawas County. will always have your forecast up-to-date and accurate as possible. Have a great Monday.
