.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...
Low level moisture will be present across the area at the start of
the long term especially along and south of the Ohio River. Although
decent cloud cover will be present through the day, dry conditions
are expected Wednesday and Wednesday night.
A warm front lifts northward on Thursday allowing for some shower
and thunderstorm activity. A low pressure system approaches
Thursday night. Models differ on how progressive this low is as it
moves through the area. The ECMWF has come more into line with a
slightly slower solution and therefore expect showers and
thunderstorms across the region on Friday before beginning to taper
off Friday night into Saturday morning. After this time expect dry
conditions for a remainder of the weekend and into Monday. The next
system will begin to move into the area for Monday night bringing
High temperatures through the long term will be in the 50s and 60s.

temperatures in the upper 30s will be possible north of Dayton to
Columbus Wednesday night and Saturday night.
