Severe weather likely for Saturday, calm by Sunday: Working for your weekend forecast
This Saturday, Northeast Ohio is in a region of risk for severe weather, but as the trigger for thunderstorms pushes east, it will leave behind cool, pleasant weather for Sunday. CLEVELAND, Ohio - The perfect environmental conditions for severe storms on Saturday are all lining up and ready to hit: a cold front, deepening low pressure system, and lots of atmospheric moisture to act as fuel to storms. Model forecast: 3 p.m. - 7 pm. of precipitation for Saturday.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  But Sunday is a much better story. As the front pushes east it will leave behind significantly cooler temperatures and sunny skies. Model forecast of temperatures this weekend.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Saturday High temperature: 86 degrees Low temperature: 69 degrees Chances of rain: 60 percent in the afternoon through evening Humidity: 65 percent Wind conditions: 16 mph Sunday High temperature: 72 degrees Low temperature: 60 degrees Chances of rain: near zero Humidity: 60 percent Wind conditions: 11 mph The How As the cold front pushes east the moist air ahead of it will produce possible severe strength storms, but will leave behind dry, sunny skies for Sunday.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  A very strong cold front is expected to pass through Northeast Ohio bringing in plenty of rainfall and heavy storms for Saturday. Why? Cold fronts are the perfect trigger for thunderstorms because they cause rising motion in the atmosphere. As air rises it becomes unstable as is cools to its dew point forming condensation and rain. But there's more. This weekend a deepening low pressure system is yet another trigger for thunderstorms, and with heavy atmospheric moisture to support development storms could become fairly strong. The Storm Prediction Center has us in a region of slight risk for severe weather Saturday, so make sure to have government alerts enabled on your smart phone so you can be notified of any warnings from the National Weather Service.

Rain chances today pushed later this evening, mostly clear Friday: Northeast Ohio weather forecast
Chances of storms still continue tonight, but will dwindle to very slight through Friday. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Chances of strong thunderstorms today have been pushed later and later because of the increasingly slow movement of the cold front expected to trigger the storms. Friday is looking mostly rain free, but in the evening some moisture might just make it north enough to initiate one or two light, scattered showers. Tonight: Rain chances peak at 4 p.m. and continue until 9 p.m., and winds will continue to pick up, staying around 15 mph through the night. Temperatures? Not giving up either, staying above 80 degrees through 8 p.m. and resting in the mid 70s until midnight. Friday: Friday will be mostly rain-free, there's just a 15 percent chance of a very light, short-lived shower or two across Northeast Ohio. Winds will calm down to just 5 mph the entire day, and temperatures will yet again reach the mid 80s. Dry air (purple/blue) will keep rain chances to a minimum for Friday but in the evening moist air (green/yellow/red) will try to creep up north and could make it here spawning a light shower or two.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Humidity levels are a little higher for Friday, so the high in the mid 80s may feel more like the upper 80s. Model forecast of temperatures for Friday.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Sunrise: 7:02 a.m. Sunset: 7:46 p.m. Pollen forecast: Pollen levels are at a medium level Friday of 7.2 for ragweed and chenopods. Lake conditions: The National Weather Service is reporting calm winds with waves less than 1 foot for Friday. Friday evening, the winds will pick up to 10 mph with waves still less than 1 foot. The How: The cold front following the low pressure system today is moving slower than expected. Therefore rain chances have been pushed later and later in the day. Friday the cold front will be east of the region, leaving behind a little bit cooler temperatures and drier air. Friday evening a little moisture that might creep north could spawn a light, scattered shower, but chances are slight.

Weekend road trip forecast: 7 cities within driving distance of Cleveland
Taking a road trip this weekend? Take a look at the weekend forecast for 7 cities within driving distance from Cleveland. CLEVELAND, Ohio - This weekend across the board it's looking like strong weather condition swings. How so? Most areas will see strong, widespread thunderstorms and hot temperatures for Saturday, but as the low pressure system and cold front pair push east they will leave behind sunny skies and much cooler temperatures for Sunday. As the cold front moves west to east (Saturday - Sunday) it will cause thunderstorms ahead of it where's there's plenty of moisture and will leave behind dry, sunny skies with cooler temperatures.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Model forecast of temperatures from Saturday morning to Sunday night.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Take a look at forecasts you might be road-tripping to. Cincinnati Cincinnati is going to see some strong weather changes this weekend. Saturday you can expect heavy rainfall nearly all day, with humidity, wind and temperatures reaching the low 80s. Sunday? Sunny skies, no rain and temperatures reaching the mid 70s. Columbus Columbus is following the same trend as Cincinnati this weekend: rain and strong winds on Saturday and clear by Sunday. Saturday's high temperature will hit the mid 80s while Sunday will cool down a bit, only reaching the mid 70s. Pittsburgh As the low pressure and cold front causing all of this rain pushes east, it will hit Pittsburgh Saturday night and may linger into Sunday morning. So, Saturday has only a 50 percent chance of rain and Sunday that rain may stick through leading to a 20 percent chance of rain for that day. Saturday is going to be stifling reaching 90 degrees, but Sunday will cool down to the mid 70s after the cold front passes. Chicago Chicago could follow the trend as the areas above, but rain chances are much more slight on Saturday, only 40 percent because of less coverage of the storms. But you can still expect some strong winds. Sunday, they drop to less than 10 percent. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s both days. Louisville Louisville is also going to be hit with the low pressure and cold front couplet. This will lead to an 80 percent chance of rain for Saturday and only 10 percent for Sunday since they will be pushed east by then. Saturday will heat up to the mid 80s while Sunday temperatures will be 80 degrees. Washington D.C. Washing D.C. is just far enough east so that the low pressure system and cold front will be partially dissipated and dry air will take over preventing thunderstorm formation. This means sunny skies this weekend with temperatures in the mid 90s Saturday dropping to the mid 80s for Sunday. Toronto It's going to be two opposite weather days this weekend in Toronto. Saturday is looking full of rain, humidity,and cool temperatures reaching 75 degrees. Sunday is going to be completely different with less than 10 percent chance of rain, sunny skies and temperatures reaching 72 degrees. The How A low-pressure system with a trailing cold front this weekend will push west to east, creating rain chances as the system moves through each of these areas. Low pressure and cold fronts create the perfect environment for thunderstorms to develop because they cause rising motion in the atmosphere. As air rises it becomes unstable as it cools to its dew point forming condensation and rain. Heavy moisture near the low pressure will help rain showers strengthen.

Lockhart crash's grieving families to FAA: Don't let it happen again
He was excited about a sand volleyball tournament and anxious about a $4 million research grant he'd been awarded. For years, Sunday had worked in children's retail stores, and she was always bestowing outfits on friends, and on the kids at church. A string of drunken driving and drug convictions had left him unable to drive legally. Nichols, at 6 feet, 220 pounds, saw doctors in two states to treat a host of conditions, four of which could have disqualified him from flying under FAA rules. [...] coursing through his veins were the sedative Valium, the painkiller Oxycontin, two antidepressants, the ADHD stimulant Ritalin, the sedating allergy medicine Benadryl, a muscle relaxant, Tylenol and cough syrup. Lirette loaded the van with champagne and orange juice for passengers to celebrate post-flight. Voyages through the serene Central Texas skies in the yellow, smiley-face balloon seemed to be the best medicine of all. After a few minutes, the person chatting with Nichols concluded: "Those clouds may be a problem for you." Crucially, the temperature and dew point were nearly equal, a sign that fog and mist could form at any time. On the way there, he and Lirette noticed a layer of fog over the ground. By the time they were ready to launch, it was clear enough they could see a pole, outside the park's skydiving school, that they used to judge visibility. [...] clouds were still forming, and another bellwether – a nearby radio tower – was mostly obscured. Balloon pilots are taught never to stop making calculations. One of Nichols' former pilots, Mike McGrath, said his boss wasn't immune to financial pressures. No one knows exactly what calculation Nichols made in that moment – or how the brew of substances permeating his brain changed the equation. Matt helped hold the balloon, grinning and tugging on the red fabric as the burners filled it nine stories high. Sue was teeing off on a golf course near home in College Station when she got Sunday's photo of Matt holding the balloon. In their respective homes, they surrounded themselves with friends and relatives. No official word came that day, but they'd seen a photo of Matt and Sunday from social media flash on the screen during a newscast. On Sunday, a state trooper called to tell Janis that her daughter was on the flight manifest. When the balloon's envelope struck the wires, the hot lines sliced through the metal cables supporting the gondola. On TV, the burned patch where the gondola landed looked huge. State troopers, NTSB officials, people from other agencies, they'd all asked how they could help. Toward year's end, a group of kids from church offered to decorate their Christmas tree. [...] he walked around the living room to make sure he could see it from every angle.
