Cold front brings rain chance…July 31st, 2012 at 7:12 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
A cold front north of the area this morning will bring the chance for showers and thunderstorms as it drops our way. Early this AM, there is a complex of showers/thunderstorms already ongoing with the front:
Most of this will weaken, but some of these showers are already affecting our northern counties:

This is rain chance #1… and will likely be limited to areas north of Dayton. But another shot comes as the front heads our way and we get some daytime heating this afternoon. Here is a forecast of what the radar could look like for the drive home around 5pm:
Unfortunately, coverage will be spotty, so not everyone will see the rain. And these will be passing showers… meaning they will be in and out. Rainfall totals look minimal, unless you can get under a stronger thunderstorm. And we may see a few thunderstorms get up to strong limits, with a slight chance for damaging winds and even hail. The SPC does not officially have us in an Elevated Risk, but they have discussed upgrading us later this morning. We will keep you posted!
Highs today should make it up around 90… maybe a bit cooler where we see more clouds, which would most likely be across the north. Tomorrow, behind the front, temperatures will not be AS hot. Highs will be pleasantly warm, in the mid-80s. But heat and humidity return for the second half of the week as we’re back up to that 90-degree mark!
