Crummy start to the weekend… but it ends ok.April 27th, 2012 at 8:08 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
Or as Jim Bucher would say when it’s ME giving the forecast, “Krummy start to the weekend…” in reference to my maiden name, Krumheuer. Do you remember when he used to call me Krumcake?? He still does… just not on-air
Anyway, today high pressure is building down from Canada. It has brought a very cold morning, as many spots have dipped into the lower 30s. A Freeze Warning continues for the northern counties (Darke, Shelby, Logan, Mercer and Auglaize) through 9am. The Dayton Airport dipped to 33-degrees… and there was some light frost in spots. Here are 8am temps:
The one good thing about today: the sunshine. We’ll see plenty of it as we head into the afternoon. While temperatures will be running about 10-degrees below normal, it will feel pleasantly cool with the sun. Clouds will be on the increase tonight, as the next storm moves in. By Saturday morning, an area of rain will be moving in from the west:
Periods of rain will continue on and off on Saturday, with the best chance in the morning, and then again in the late afternoon and evening. It will be a rainy (at times), breezy and chilly day! Check out the forecast highs… much cooler as you go north:
The record low HIGH temperature Saturday afternoon is 45-degrees in Dayton. We’ll be close.
Sunday will start with clouds, and if we can get them to break in the afternoon (which we have a good chance of doing)… it will be a really nice day. Highs should make it into the lower 60s Sunday afternoon, with 70s on the way for much of next week!
Today is April 27th–the anniversary of the Super Tornado Outbreak. Our own Brandon Redmond will be doing a detailed blog about this later today. I did a summary after attending a conference in Birmingham, AL last year… you can read it HERE. More to come this afternoon!
