Tropical Depression Laura certainly made for a grey, gloomy and particularly damp end to the work week across the Tri-State. While we essentially dodged the threat of Severe Weather earlier on, torrential rains still plagued much of the Ohio Valley; some areas that dealt with localized heavier rainfall and received north of 1" of additional rain today. Current model data suggests that the last of the organized and sustained rainfall should exit east of the region between 10 PM and 11 PM this evening, though some sprinkles may linger after that point.
After seeing temperatures fall into the upper 60s and low 70s area-wide early Saturday morning, an advancing cold front may trigger the development of scattered rainfall in a few spots late tomorrow morning or early afternoon; the greatest potential for scattered rain will fall between 10 AM and 1 PM Saturday. Temperatures may again peak in the mid 80s, but a breezy northwesterly wind flow settling in on the backside of that cold front will make for a particularly pleasant Saturday evening.
Sunday, on the other hand, while cooler, may not be quite as dry. A weak core of low pressure lifting northward from the Mississippi Valley may produce scattered rainfall on and off that day. Then again, with high temperatures only reaching the upper 70s, how many of us will really be complaining? Drier weather however, is expected to return Monday - afternoon highs will reach up near 81° that day under partly sunny skies. The unfortunate part about Monday, aside from it being (you know)Monday, will be the influx of more tropical moisture. Dew points that day will be back up around 70°.
