Kingsport, Tennessee to Sandusky, Ohio

Sorry about the missed forecast yesterday. I have a burgeoning case of narcolepsy. I have to say though, I am glad to be getting into the world of forecasting, after a terrible week in the sports world, it is nice to get away from the awful scandal involving Penn State, and take this little road trip to Sandusky. Oh crap!
Nevertheless, we will soldier on with an 8 1/2 hour drive that covers 520 miles. This mean that our pace will be a leisurely 61.6mph. Shall we be on our way?


High pressure has been te primary feature across the eastern two thurds of the nation for a few days now. The upper level pattern is very active, however, and will, in fact, be transitory. Most of the drive will be with the wind at our backs as high pressure moves off to sea. This will mean seasonably warm conditions, perhaps enough to crack a window through southern Ohio. At the very end of the day, around 6pm, we may start to see some clouds and drizzle seep into northwestern Ohio as a system moving through the upper Midwest will arrive in Sandusky about the same time we do.
