A little warm-up… then a big cool-down!August 15th, 2012 at 8:26 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
High pressure right over us this morning brought clearing skies early on… and with light winds and low level moisture, we did see some fog across the region. Here are a few pictures from the area:
Fog is a bit thicker up in Logan County! This is near St Rt st 508 & 68… by @sherrylynn1969
And in New Carlisle, @Michael_McD1983 described it as “pea soup”. If you ever have weather photos to share, you can send them to me on Twitter (@WDTN_Jamie) or use the Report It feature on the 2 News App.
After this fog burns off, we’ll see a lot of sunshine today, and pleasantly warm temperatures. Highs will be near-normal, in the lower 80s, with comfortable levels of humidity. As the high shifts east on Thursday, we will be even warmer, as we climb into the mid and upper 80s across the area. Most of Thursday looks dry, but a cold front will be approaching in the evening, increasing the chance of rain:
The best chance for thunderstorms will be overnight into early Friday morning. As these storms approach from the northwest, depending on exact timing, they could initially be on the strong side:
They will tend to weaken as we head into the early morning hours of Friday… and then fire again as they move east of the area Friday afternoon. Behind this unseasonably strong cold front, we really cool off for the upcoming weekend. Mid 70s for highs on Friday… lower 70s for highs on Saturday! Morning lows will be in the lower to mid 50s… nice and refreshing!
Half-marathon training update… So I did try to do a short run yesterday, and succeeded… partly. I got about a mile in before I had to pick up my kids, but that’s where I ran into problems. My almost-five-year-old is getting a little too “old” for the jogging stroller! She tends to think of it as a thing for “babies”… so I have to do a lot of coaxing and even a bit of bribing to get her in it. Yesterday, I actually gave her a chance to run home with me, while I pushed my little guy. She did pretty good! She rain quite a bit of the way, but of course not ALL of the way. So I ended up with a 2.2 run/walk on my hands. Today is an off day but I am actually going to run a LONG run tomorrow!! I think I’m crazy, as it will be muggy and a bit warmer… but hey, I gotta do it when I get the chance. I start a vacation tomorrow, so I will have extra time in the morning. This weekend is a busy one, and I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to commit the time. SO… we’ll see how it goes… wish me luck
