Spring weekend followed by another blast of cold

Spring is out in full force this weekend! Have you seen some leaf buds on the trees? This warm weather should really give the growing season a kick start. However if you have any budding flowers, you may want to pay close attention to the forecast this week.

A strong storm system will continue to wind up in the middle part of the country. As this happens, more warm air will get pumped into the Ohio Valley ahead of it. This means highs pushing 80 degrees on Sunday! Be prepared for some strong southerly wind gusts of 30-35 mph thanks to the abundance of sunshine. (As the sun warms the lower atmosphere, the air begins to mix with air higher up in the atmosphere where stronger jet stream winds exist creating gusty winds down at the surface.)

As we head into your Monday, get ready for another umbrella necessary type day. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely from late morning on into the evening. A very strong cold front will scream into Ohio Monday night knocking the temperature down into the 30s!

It is not out of the question for a few snowflakes to even be flying early Tuesday morning! Lows will dip down into the middle 30s. Highs on Tuesday will barely make it into the middle 40s as a very cold air mass moves overhead.

We will slowly moderate through the rest of the week. If you have some flowers that are budding, be careful Wednesday morning. Lows could dip below freezing causing some frost to occur. Highs will head back into the 50s and 60s for the remainder of the week.
