Coolest day of the week…April 17th, 2012 at 7:04 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
We’ve dropped into the low and mid 40s behind the cold front this morning, and this afternoon we’ll only make it into the lower 60s. While cooler than we have been, this is actually right around normal for this time of year–the normal high is 63, and the normal low is 42. Good news today: we won’t be nearly as windy as we were yesterday! For awhile winds were gusting over 40 mph… here’s a look at hourly observations:
|12:56 PM||69.1 °F||48.0 °F||47%||29.90 in||10.0 mi||SW||33.4 mph||43.7 mph||N/A||Mostly Cloudy|
|1:56 PM||71.1 °F||50.0 °F||47%||29.91 in||10.0 mi||WSW||29.9 mph||42.6 mph||N/A||Scattered Clouds|
|2:56 PM||70.0 °F||46.9 °F||44%||29.96 in||10.0 mi||WSW||26.5 mph||41.4 mph||N/A||Mostly Cloudy|
|3:56 PM||68.0 °F||46.0 °F||45%||29.98 in||10.0 mi||WSW||31.1 mph||42.6 mph||N/A||Mostly Cloudy|
This morning, winds are light and we’ll stay in the 5-10 mph range through the day, with high pressure building in from the north. A system south of us will STAY south of us, but we will get the clouds from this feature from time to time. So we’ll call it a partly sunny 2′s Day. Like that? Dan Edwards came up with it last week… and I think it’s quite catchy.
Anyway, as the high shifts east of us Wednesday, winds will start to come in from the southeast… and this will start a warm up for the area. Mid-week highs will be in the upper 60s, with 70s on the way for Thursday and Friday. Rain chances remain low until we get to Friday evening/overnight. The next system moves in then, bringing a good chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Rain will likely linger into Saturday… and we can’t rule out something on Sunday. The big story for the weekend will be the COOLER air moving back into the Miami Valley. Highs will only be in the 50s, and lows will drop into the upper 30s.
