Winds will increase & temperatures will drop!September 29th, 2011 at 8:20 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
This is the time of year for ups and downs… we tend to see some pretty wild swings in weather! That’s just what we’ll see over the next 24-hours! After some morning fog, we’ll enjoy a little sunshine today! Winds will increase… but it’s a southerly wind today. The combination of sun and that southerly flow will help temperatures climb to near-normal values this afternoon… with a forecast high near 70. Then the cold front drops in:
This will bring the chance for showers– and even some thunderstorms– to the area after 5pm or so. This rain will start in the northwest Miami Valley and spread southeast through the evening hours. Any thunderstorm that gets going along the initial line will have the potential to produce some stronger wind gusts:
Be sure to check back with Brian Davis later today if you have evening plans. He’ll have your forecast and will analyze the situation on Live Doppler 2X beginning right at 5pm. (he’ll also let you know if any warnings have been issued for the area!)
Behind this cold front, MUCH cooler air will work in for Friday and the weekend. Highs will only be in the mid-50s Friday afternoon, with lots of clouds and occasional showers. Not only will it be cool, but the wind… the WIND! It will be quite gusty, coming in from the west northwest. Brace yourselves!
Overnight lows through the weekend now look even colder. Winds will be lightest on Sunday morning, as high pressure settles in right over us. If skies are indeed clear, we could see temps drop into the mid-30s:
Patchy frost is still in the forecast for Sunday morning… gardeners take note!
I am taking a long weekend, so Tara Hastings will be with you Friday & Monday. I am so excited to be hanging out with my high school girlfriends this weekend! Woo-hoo! I hope you all enjoy your day and weekend… see you next week!
