Good afternoon! Cloud cover is beginning to increase from our north to south this afternoon, as a frontal boundary sits across the Ohio River Valley. Other than a mix of sunshine and cloud cover, we will stay dry with highs near 90 degrees.
Looking at the Tropics, Hurricane Fiona is blazing through portions of the Caribbean. She will bend north and eastward in the days to come, potentially running through Bermuda on her way. Time will tell, but for now no direct impacts are expected across the USA in the days to come. The one exception is some storm surge along the coast, but otherwise, fairly quiet.
In terms of rainfall chances over the next week, they look limited. In the next 5 days alone, very little to no rainfall should be expected. Towards next week, we have a good shot, but timing it out and on exactly how much rainfall is a bit too early. For now the timeframe looks to be Monday and Tuesday.
Temperatures will generally trend warmer through midweek, before cooling with a passing cold front Thursday. Highs will then return to the 70s and 80s Thursday, Friday, and the weekend.
