Look for clearing skies tonight as temperatures drop from an afternoon high of 79 in the region through the 70s and into the upper 60s by midnight, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Wednesday afternoon.
By early Thursday, temperatures will drop to the mid 50s as skies remain mostly clear. After a sunny start, there likely will be more clouds by the afternoon and evening. It won’t be quite as warm as Wednesday as highs end up in the mid and upper 70s in some areas.
The first chance for showers this week will arrive Friday. Some indications are that they will occur early in the day, west of Interstate 75 and a better chance west of the Ohio-Indiana line. Clouds will likely give way to a bit more sun Friday with temperatures in the low 70s by the afternoon.
Saturday looks to be dry for most in the region with a mix of clouds. There will be a slight chance of rain in the evening across the far southwest.
For Sunday, more showers will move in from the southwest. Sunday and Monday will be wet at times and much more cloudy. That will cool down the region a bit as highs move back into the mid 60s.
