July 4th Weather...will there be "Fireworks"

As we head into July, after this final day of June, the weather seems to be changing into a "typical" Summer pattern.....

After 3 sunny days with low humidity, we will now see an increase in humidity, the A/C will be turned back on, and there will be a chance of showers in the forecast, albeit small chances, over the next week to 10 days.  But first there is the weekend, the July 4th weekend to deal with:

Today June 30th---Sunny to Partly Cloudy warm and a bit more humid....high 85
Tonight--Party Cloudy with a slight chance of a storm low 65
Tomorrow--July begins Sunny, and more humid with a high of 85

The Holiday Weekend....Partly Cloudy each day, High 90 Saturday, 86 Sunday, and cooling to 82 Monday the 4th  Lows in the 60s, with a chance of storms at 30% on the 4th....

Fall In...

63 degrees as I type...a slight drizzle now and then, and about 20 degrees below normal is the forecast for today...the high prediction has been upgraded to 70...but with heavy cloud cover, I'm not betting on that.  The weekend looks better, and rain is back in the forecast(what else is new?) by Sunday...

Today Friday, June 24th...clouds with a 40% of light rain  High 70
tonight, clouds breaking with a low near 60  and for the weekend

Saturday, Sunny and Pleasant, high near 80...Sunday a 30% chance of stroms with a high of 76...

A taste of Fall in late June?

Showers have been hanging around the area, but for the most part, Celina has been spared...we really don't need more rain, at least not at this time.  The forecast does call for a good chance for today and tonight, with less tomorrow...but the hot, humid, weather, will give way to unseasonably cool conditions for today and tomorrow, with a slow warming trend for the weekend, with plenty of sunshine.

Today, Clouds with a 50-50 chance of thundershowers High of 73
Tonight, more clouds, with rain in the area 50% chance and a low of 62
Tomorrow, Friday, unseasonably cool with a 30% chance of rain, a high of only 65

The weekend looks Sunny and Warming, with highs both Saturday and Sunday warming into the middle and upper 70s.

How Did That Mess Miss?

As I prepared to umpire a Junior ACME league game in St. Henry last night, storms on the Radar were brewing and popping up....a massive of  Reds and Yellows appeared to be heading out way....somehow, despite the Reds getting rained out in Cincinnati(only the 5th time in Great American Ballpark history, opened in 2003), and some of the area games getting game in St. Henry and son Sam's in Celina, both were spared the area wide heavy rains....

More strong storms maybe heading our way however....

Wednesday June 22nd, first full day of Summer   30% chance of heavy storms late this afternoon, with 40% tonight  High 80  Low of 65

Tomorrow a 60% chance of showers and thundershowers a cooler high of just 72....and by Friday they are calling for a high of just 67 with showers coming to and end late.

Hot, Humid, and Severe Weather on the way for the First Day of Summer 2011

Today is the official start of Summer, and also the longest day of the year, as far as daylight hours.  Hard as it is to believe we get a minute or so less daylight starting tomorrow, and we head towards Fall and Winter.  Not so today however, after some morning sun, we will see 90 degree temps with a 60% chance of Storms and some of those could be strong to sever.  A cool front will pass through and things will get cooler, but the chance of rain will remain through much of the week.

Partly Cloudy with a high of 90 today, 60% Chance of Strong Storms

The same for tonight with a low in the 70s....

And the Rains/Thunderstorms Came...

Some rains over the weekend, but the real stuff hit this morning and continues into the afternoon...more on tap for tonight, with the chance of storms both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.....I'm guessing at least an inch or more so far....most of which we don't need.

Tonight June 20th, Storms at 50% chance lows in the 60s

Tomorrow, the first official day of Summer and our longest day and again Wednesday we have a 40 or 50% chance of strong storms...High near 90 tomorrow, but cooling into the lower 80s by Wednesday.  More rain possible for Thursday and Friday, but cooler and decreasing chances of storms.

Weekend Rains?

Tonight through next Thursday has a chance of rain in the least so says the Weather Channel...

Not sure I'm buying back to the wash out condidtions we had earlier this Spring, but a little rain will go along way, we don't need much at all.  We got a bit of wet yesterday, but nothing heavy in Celina...elsewhere got more.

Friday June 17th-Sunny and returning to summer like conditions.  High 82
Tonight, showers are possible after 9pm, low in the 60s
Saturday and Sunday...a 30 to 40% chance of storms, some could be heavy or severe, highs in the mid to upper 80s, and lows in the 60s.

Storm Bringer...

At 10am on this June 15th a large batch of heavy rain and Thunderstorms are crossing the Indiana State Line and creeping into Western Ohio.  Although we had a wet cold Spring until the last couple of weeks...a half inch of rain or so, would not be unwelcome.

Today---Showers and Storms, with Highs in the Upper 60s, well below normal.  They say a 60% chance of storms, gotta believe it will be a higher % than that.

More storms, again a 60% chance, and near 60 for tonight...and tomorrow, Thursday, more storms possible{50%) in the late afternoon and evening, with a High in the mid 70s...

A little rain goes a long way, and we don't need or want the stuff that they say is coming over the weekend....more as the weekend approaches.

Stormy Weekend Ahead?

After a spell of hot and humid conditions, and near record temperatures, the first signs of a cool-down accompanied by strong storms are in store for western Ohio and the eastern Midwest for the next few days.  A batch of storms rolled through overnight, but left Mercer County with little rain to show for, tonight, and both Friday, and Saturday, that, may, be another story.

Hot, Humid, and More Showers for the week ahead

Storms Saturday Night turned to hazy sunshine and opressive humidity Sunday...the week ahead looks to be much of the same.  Days of 80s and low 90s, nights of 60s with storm chances in the 30 to 60% range for the week ahead...

The Saturday Night storms, missed Celina, at least compared to what the central parts of Indiana had....we had some rain, lots of lightning, and a bit of wind...but nothing compared to other areas.

Today 30% chance of storms  86 for a high....

Much the same tonight and tomorrow.....
