I completed my run to Michigan yesterday, under beautiful weather. I drove with the windows down for a good part of the day. I ended the night just west of Cleveland.
This morning, the weather has been partly sunny, with cumulus clouds, mild and still.
The NWS in Cleveland, OH, forecasts (for Cleveland, OH) a mostly sunny day, with a high temperature of 75 F. The winds will be from the north at 6-8 mph.
The NWS in Sterling, VA, forecasts (for Jersey, VA) a partly cloudy evening, with a low temperature of 64 F. The winds will be light and variable.
Current visible satellite imagery shows some light cumulus along the way.
The SPC Mesoscale Analysis Surface Map shows mild temperatures and high humidity, with mostly sunny skies (according to the sensors) and light, variable winds.
The SPC Pressure Map shows I am starting the day under high pressure, with no strong pressure gradients. The RAP shows this trend will continue throughout my journey.
The Nested NAM simulated reflectivity shows showers and thunderstorms are unlikely along my route. This chart has been excluded from today’s post.
The Nested NAM predicts temperatures will rise into the mid 70s F, and then decrease to the mid 60s F overnight.
The Nested NAM shows that the dewpoints will remain in the 50s F.

I will be traveling under mostly sunny skies and beautiful weather. I see more riding with my windows down in my future.
