It’s Friday, it’s time for the weekend, and it’s time for my first forecast of the year! We’re going to Lima, Ohio, a nice Midwestern spot for the first stop of the year.
At 1253AM, ET, Lima was reporting a temperature of 42 degrees with sunny skies. Most of the state of Ohio was in the embrace of warm high pressure, however a large system in the southeast could be seen in the southeastern US, with the northern reach of clouds brushing the Ohio River. The system is expected to continue towards New England through the night tonight, but there is consensus that the precipitation will not extend northeast to Lima.;
An overriding ridge will become the predominant feature aloft, further reinforcing the warm up in Lima over the weekend and bringing out a vast dome of high pressure, stretching from the Gulf to Canada. It’s going to be a sunny weekend in Lima, with unseasonably warm temperatures, with a little bit of morning fog possible if there is anything on the ground available to be evaporated.
