Fall-like weekend & it continues today…September 10th, 2012 at 7:25 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
After the strong front Friday night into Saturday morning… we’ve been enjoying a really comfortable airmass here in the Miami Valley! High pressure will slowly drift across the region all week, keeping us with bright blue skies. As the high shifts off to the east by mid-week, our winds will become more southerly and we will see a slow warming trend:
Here’s how temperatures will play out…
With this strong high in control, we will also have a very DRY stretch of weather this week. We will see mostly sunny skies, and the next chance of rain isn’t until the weekend. Unfortunately, the timing isn’t the best… as it looks to move in Friday night into Saturday–the day of the Air Force Marathon. If we could have today’s weather on Saturday, it would be PERFECT. I’ve noticed during training for the half, that when I run on a humid day, I generally feel horrible afterward. I suspect this is due to dehydration. But no matter HOW much water/sports drink I have the night before and morning of a long run… I still feel crummy after that long distance. Now, I did an 8.5 mile run on Sunday, and felt AWESOME after! I am attributing this to the weather–temps in the 50s/60s with low humidity…that is KEY! The sad news is as we approach the weekend, the humidity will be coming up. The timing of this next rain-maker could shift, so stay tuned and we will keep you posted. Good luck runners & walkers during this last week of training!!
