More Widespread Rain & Storms Tuesday....
TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy. Warm & Muggy. Low 70.
TUESDAY: Mostly Cloudy. Rain & Storms. High 81.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Showers/Storms Ending. Decreasing Clouds. Cooler. Low 62.
DISCUSSION: We had a warmer Labor Day and the oppressive humidity remained in place! We also had a few showers and storms! The high today, in Zanesville, was 83 degrees!
Skies will become partly cloudy for the rest of the night and it will be dry. It will remain warm and muggy and there could be a little patchy fog. Lows will be near 70. This will be the 3rd night in a row with a low around 70.
Clouds will build back into the area on Tuesday morning and a cold front will also begin moving toward the area. The computer models have been trending a little earlier on the arrival time of the front over the past couple days, so we have moved up the start time of the showers and storms.
On Tuesday, the best chance for rain and storms will be from mid-morning into the afternoon. The best chance during the morning will be north and west of Zanesville and then a line of showers and storms will move southeast through the remainder of the day. The rain is likely going to fall heavily at times and the rainfall highest amounts are likely going to be north and west of Zanesville. There could also be some gusty winds, but the threat for severe weather will be minimal. Highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s.
The front will begin to clear the region on Tuesday evening and this will bring the showers and storms to an end. Skies will gradually decrease with clouds into Wednesday morning.
The air behind this front will be slightly less humid and the overnight lows will be cooler. However, the daytime highs will begin to warm back-up on Wednesday and Thursday.
