Active weather for the second half of the week and a Fall preview…August 9th, 2012 at 8:01 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
Overnight thunderstorms may have given you an early wake-up call… or maybe you’re getting up late this morning because they knocked out your power! Either way, they are ongoing across the area. Stay up to date on exactly where they are by checking in with LIVE Doppler 2HD. Scattered thunderstorms will actually be possible at any time today, but the best chances are this morning… and then again during the later afternoon and evening hours. Any thunderstorm that develops today will have the potential to become strong to severe, and we remain in an Elevated Risk for severe weather:
Damaging winds will be the main threat, but hail is also possible. Frequent lightning and very heavy rain will also be common today… it looks quite unsettled as a storm system moves right over the Miami Valley:
We will keep you posted of any watches or warnings in the area on WDTN and at wdtn.com
Thunderstorms will continue overnight into early Friday. The trend will be to then dry out behind the system, but with wrap-around moisture and cooler air moving in, we can’t rule out a spotty shower or two late Friday and even through the day on Saturday. Yes, I said cooler air! Highs will be in the lower 70s Friday… running about 10-degrees below normal. That’s something we haven’t seen much of all summer! It will definitely feel like fall at the Germanfest Picnic Friday evening! The more comfortable weather lasts into the weekend, too:
Remember, Bucher will be there Friday to kick off the fun, and I will be emcee for the fashion show on Saturday. Holly says she’ll stop by sometime, too… and I’m guessing Brian Davis will be there for a bit, to celebrate his German heritage! If you see one of us be sure to say hello!
I took another day off from running yesterday as my back continues to heal. It is feeling better, but certain moves I make do still result in a twinge of pain. Hopefully things are all better by the weekend. I did attend Kettering’s Holiday at Home Kick-Off Reception yesterday evening. I am on the planning committee for Holiday at Home… the BEST weekend in Kettering! If you’ve never been, it’s quite the event on the Sunday & Monday of Labor Day weekend. You can get more information on what we have to offer on the Holiday at Home page. Here are some pictures from last night’s event!
