<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Thursday night, look for
partly cloudy skies with lows in the
lower 60s. It won't be as comfortable
tonight as the last several nights due
to increasing moisture in the air. On
the weather maps, we've been noticing a
slow moving cold front to our northwest
for several days. Right now, the front
is in the Ohio River Valley creating
showers and storms near Columbus and
Cincinnati. This boundary will move
toward us over the next three days,
increasing rain and thunderstorm
chances across the NEWS7 viewing area.
Friday, skies will be partly sunny. Our
high-definition 4km forecast model
indicates only a slight chance of a
shower or storm on July 4th. Let it be
noted, any storm that may form could be
severe. Highs Friday are forecast in
the upper 80s with a southwest breeze.
Mostly cloudy skies with scattered


showers and isolated storms are in the
outlook for late Friday night. Right
now, it looks like most firework
displays across the region should be
rain-free, with most activity Friday
night holding off until around
midnight. Lows in the muggy mid 60s.
The weekend will average about a 50%
chance of showers and storms with
otherwise mostly cloudy skies thanks to
the front meandering across the region.
This doesn't mean it's going to rain
all the time, but it certainly means to
watch the sky, and to be prepared to
duck indoors if storms fire. Highs are
forecast in the lower 80s this weekend
thanks to more cloudiness, but it's
still going to remain rather humid.
Early next week calls for variably
cloudy skies and a 30% chance of
showers and storms with highs in the
mid to upper 80s. For weather anytime
