Cold front brings changes…May 8th, 2012 at 8:08 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
A cold front passed through the Miami Valley this morning, and you can actually see it coming through on the temperature map, with the cooler readings behind the front. That’s where temps are falling into the 50s:
There has been rain along and ahead of the front, too, with some spots picking up an inch or more of rain overnight. Most of the rain will be out of our area by 9 or 10am… with a dry afternoon in the works. Even though we started rainy and humid, it will actually turn into a pretty decent day. The clouds will break a bit, and temperatures (while cooler than yesterday’s 83-degrees)… will still be just above normal. We should make it into the lower 70s today.
A second cold front comes through tomorrow, bringing in slightly cooler air. There is just a slight chance of a spotty shower with this front–best chance across the northern/eastern counties. Futuretrac shows this tomorrow afternoon:
No severe weather is expected for the next few days, but we did have a few warnings with the thunderstorms yesterday afternoon and evening. We had some hail reports and isolated wind damage, but mostly escaped the worst of it. Here are some great shots of the storms as they came through, taken by Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Brandon Redmond… as he was storm chasing in Darke County.
