Thursday may have been quite a shock to your system! Temperatures hovered in the lower and middle 50s all day thanks to extensive cloud cover and occasional rain showers. The sun will return on Friday, but the warm weather will not.
The weather pattern across the Lower 48 is transitioning to a much stormier one. Multiple small storm systems will move across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley over the next week bringing reinforcing shots of cold air.
You will want the jacket out the door on Friday morning. Lows will dip down to around 44 degrees and a light breeze will make it feel even colder! The sun will help warm the temperature a little bit during the day, but not to the levels we saw earlier this week. Highs on Friday will only reach the lower and middle 60s. It will get cold quickly on Friday evening with temperatures falling into the 40s by midnight.
An area of low pressure will side by to our north on Saturday bringing a chance for showers. Right now it does not look like a washout, but you might want to plan on taking some rain gear to the Buckeyes game just in case. Highs on Saturday will be chilly in the middle 50s.
Skies will dry out Sunday before an even stronger cold front pushes our direction by next week. This front could unlock the door to the coldest blast of air we have seen all season so far. It is not out of the question that we could see patchy frost and maybe even a snow flurry next week! Stay tuned for updates on our changing weather.
