The warming starts here!April 12th, 2012 at 7:15 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
It’s another cold morning, as temperatures are dropping to near-freezing values again. This morning, there’s also frost forming… as winds are lighter today, with high pressure settling in right over us. Subsidence today–sinking air under the high–will provide us with a very sunny afternoon! Bright and warming will be the rule through the end of the week. Today’s highs will be pretty close to normal (60-degrees)… and on Friday, we’ll go even higher–into the mid-60s.
By Friday night, a warm front will approach the Miami Valley… and that will bring in some warmer air for the weekend. It’s also going to bring in showers and thunderstorms!
The above image is our in-house computer model showing Saturday morning. At least the first half of Saturday looks messy here, but we may get some breaks going into the afternoon. Something scary for Saturday, however, is the risk for severe weather out in The Plains:
The SPC has already put parts of Kansas and Oklahoma in a MODERATE RISK for severe storms. This could be a significant tornado/severe hail outbreak over the central part of the country. We will be watching this closely as we head into the weekend.
Back home, on Sunday, the warm front will be north of us. Depending on where it ends up… it could end up being a pretty dry and warm day here! Right now we’ve kept a 30% chance of rain in the forecast, and it looks like the best shot will be in the northern counties. We’ll keep you posted of changes to the weekend forecast on Channel 2! Stay tuned!
