A cold front will exit the eastern Ohio Valley Thursday afternoon. Rainfall
associated with it will follow.
High pressure will build over the basin Friday and Saturday keeping conditions
dry with above normal temperatures.
Another cold front will brush the northeastern Ohio Valley late Sunday. The
front will not feature a lot of moisture, so rainfall amounts will be modest
and confined to the northeast.
High pressure will rebound over the basin early next week allowing a return of
warm and dry weather. Rain chances will increase late next week as a frontal
system approaches the region from the west.
