Pleasant weather most of the week!May 15th, 2012 at 6:45 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
High pressure is our fair weather friend… and will be hanging out with us most of this week! That means nice mostly sunny and warm afternoons… followed by clear and cool nights. The one problem is that these clear, calm nights are perfect for fog formation… especially in those areas that picked up significant rainfall Sunday/Sunday night. Those locations have more low level moisture to work with. This morning, the worst of the fog is along/east of I-71. A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for these locations until 9am… this does include Clinton County:
Even those areas NOT in the advisory may still have pockets of low visibilities. I have seen this in Clark, Greene and Butler Counties so far this morning. Just be aware that you may it it between now and 8 or 9am. As of this blog, there’s only been one school delay… you can keep tabs on any additional delays here: WDTN SCHOOL DELAYS/CLOSINGS
After the fog burns off, there is nothing but sun! Highs will climb into the upper 70s today–just a couple degrees warmer than yesterday. A weak cold front will drop in tomorrow, but as I mentioned yesterday… it is lacking moisture. AND the time of day that it’s moving in (morning hours) are not very favorable. Sooo I’m keeping just a 20% chance of a spotty shower in the forecast… otherwise, it should end up being a pretty decent day.
The front will drop temperatures slightly for both Wednesday and Thursday… but we’ll still end up in the low-mid 70s during the afternoon hours. Warming is still in the works for Friday and the weekend as we make a run for the lower 80s! Anyone opening their pools a little early? I was working out in the yard yesterday, and did get some planting done. I don’t have much of a green thumb, so this time of year always makes me nervous… will my flowers survive the summer?? We’ll see. As I’ve mentioned before… I have tried tomatoes in the past, and while they did great… the squirrels got to them! I don’t even think they LIKE tomatoes, because each one would have a bite or two out of it… and that was it. Grrr. This year, I’ve planted some herbs and some flowers, so fingers crossed nobody gets to them!!
