Cold front doesn’t bring TOO many changes…May 16th, 2012 at 7:34 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
A cold front sits northwest of us early this morning… and will move across the Miami Valley during the late morning hours:
There will be SOME changes to our weather with this feature… but not drastic changes by any means! This morning, our dew points have dropped into the mid-40s… which shows how the atmosphere has dried out a bit under the influence of high pressure. Soooo this means… not only is fog NOT a concern this morning, but there’s also not a great chance of rain with the front coming through. Futuretrac is forecasting the best chance of any rain today to be in the southeastern Miami Valley:
But the chance is still low–maybe a 10-20% chance of a pop-up shower. Temperatures will drop slightly today, too. Yesterday’s official high climbed to 81-degrees… today we’ll top out in the low to mid 70s across the region. The northern counties will be a bit cooler, because the front comes through these areas first. Southern counties will have more time to warm, thus higher readings:
Quite pleasant, still! It does get a bit chilly tonight, as we drop into the mid-40s by Thursday morning. With high pressure building in behind this front… we return to full sunshine and very nice temperatures Thursday afternoon. Highs tomorrow will be in the low 70s. Then starts the warming trend! The weekend is still looking to run 10-15 degrees above normal, with highs in the low to mid 80s. Rain chances will remain low through the weekend, increasing slightly late Monday and into Tuesday as the next front drops in. I know a lot of you have done your planting by now… and would probably like a little natural water! Our friends up on the farm in Fort Loramie have just finished planting all of their corn. Soybeans go in the ground today… and they are asking for some rain for the crops to speed up growth! At least temperatures will be quite pleasant for chores around the farm… or garden!
