There are a lot of decent sized towns in Southwestern Ohio, much to everyone’s surprise. Actually, probably not. Everyone probably already knew that.
At 1156AM, ET, Springfield was reporting a temperature of 46 degrees with clear skies. It was cooler than it’s been for much of the spring, as a ridge spilled south from Canada. A strong system has developed over the northern Plains that will eventually bring some wet weather to Springfield, but eventually lose it’s organizational structure well ahead of it’s arrival in southwestern Ohio.
While some systems develop impressively rapidly, this system will completely fall apart with stunning efficiency. The primary center of low pressure will remain parked over the Dakotas as a remnant warm front stalls over the Ohio Valley. The associated rainfall, wind and clouds from the system will vanish across most of the system, but there may be a lingering shower threat through the weekend for Springfield.

Everyone looks to be in agreement on Springfield this weekend. At least there is a warm up for Sunday! Look how strong the low over the Plains looks today, compared with how weak it will be going forward.
