We go from summer to fall in the next 24 hours…September 7th, 2012 at 7:37 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
We’ve been talking about a big change in weather all week, and it happens tonight! Ahead of a storm system today, we’ll experience another summer-like afternoon with higher humidity and highs in the upper 80s. The winds will increase a bit later today, as the storm system approaches. Right now, it looks like our daylight hours will be dry, with the rain arriving between 8 and 10pm, as depicted on Futuretrac:
If you are in our western counties, you will see it first. So be especially alert as you’re heading out for the evening… particularly the high school football games. Big crowds on elevated bleachers with approaching thunderstorms is NOT a good mix! Be sure to check in with Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis before you head out. Here is the rain chance timeline for the day as of now, you can see how it peaks overnight:
And some of those storms could be strong to severe… with damaging winds the main threat… but not the only severe weather parameter that will be possible:
Some of the rain could be heavy at times overnight. Saturday morning starts with the chance of rain or thunderstorms, especially across the east. Most of the afternoon looks dry, with just a slight chance of a few sprinkles. It WILL be windy and a LOT COOLER, however!! Definitely feeling like Fall this weekend, with highs in the 70s and lows near 50-degrees. Some of the outlying communities could even dip into the upper 40s Sunday or Monday morning. Chilly! And there is so much to do this weekend! Just to name a few of the festivals… Beavercreek Popcorn Festival, Vandalia Octoberfest, Kettering Italian Fall Festa, and the Downtown Dayton Revival. Wow… what a jam-packed weekend!
I hope you enjoy whatever you end up doing! I will be trying a medium-ish run of 8 miles at some point… only one week away from the Air Force Half!!
