Sunny streak ends… watching for showers & cooler temps, too…

September 13th, 2012 at 7:13 am by under Weather

Clouds have moved into the Miami Valley this morning, bringing an end to our streak of sunny days.  High pressure is still just east of the area, but all eyes are now on a cold front sitting to our northwest.  We’re still mild ahead of this front, but you can see the cooler air behind it…

All that arrives for Friday.  Highs today will be close to 80 degrees… especially if we get some breaks in the clouds.  But Friday will be 10-degrees lower, with highs only near 70.  Add to that a bit of a breeze, and it will feel cool!  The front will keep us mostly cloudy tomorrow, too, with the chance of a few spotty showers:

It does look like the rain will be out of here for Friday night football games!  Temperatures will drop through the 60s during high school games… so it looks like sweatshirt weather.  As for the Air Force Marathon on Saturday morning… well, things are trending cooler and cooler.  It now looks quite chilly, with start-time temps in the upper 40s.  We’ll see a lot of sunshine, though, and that will warm us into the 60s during the race.  Karrie tells me to bring a “throwaway sweatshirt” to start with… and shed during the race.  Sounds like a plan :)   Just don’t forget the sport sunblock!

I did my last training run yesterday–just three miles.  The run felt good, and I hope I am ready for the 13.1 I will tackle on Saturday!  I’ve been eating brown rice for days to load up on the carbs :)   Now for bib/race packet pick up today and tomorrow at the Nutter Center…
