Warming even more for the weekend…August 23rd, 2012 at 7:44 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
High pressure at the surface is bringing about another cool, clear and calm morning. We’ve dipped into the 50s in most of the Miami Valley, and it’s another really nice start to the day:
This, of course, also means plenty of sunshine is on tap for the afternoon again. As we’ve been talking about… a warming trend continues for the area. Yesterday we reached 84-degrees, officially, and today will be just a touch warmer. I’m forecasting 86 for this afternoon… 88 tomorrow and 90 for Saturday and Sunday. It’s one of the last weekends for pools to be open, and the weather will be great for you to soak up every last bit of summer.
BUT at this time of year, we also have fall-ish activities going on already… FOOTBALL!! Tomorrow Operation Football gets kicked of on WDTN, Channel 2. We are all so excited for a new season of high school football. While the games will start a little warm, it will be quite comfortable once the sun sets:
I cannot WAIT to head out to my old alma mater for the big game… the Alter-Fairmont game!! I went to Fairmont, and grew up near Alter… so I had tons of Alter friends. This was always such a fun rivalry… even if it wasn’t much of a rivalry ON the field. Still, GO FIREBIRDS!! So who’s your team??
The next chance of rain is not until Monday… that’s when a cold front will move through the area. Right now, it doesn’t even look like everyone will see it… scattered showers, maybe some thunder… will be the rule. Behind the front, we look to cool off… but there is still some question as to what Isaac will do. Right now, it’s still a tropical storm… but is forecast to become a hurricane before affecting the US. Here is the latest forecast path:
We’ll keep you posted!
