Cold morning, nice and cool this afternoon

September 19th, 2012 at 7:56 am by under Weather

Yesterday’s cold front is a thing of the past!  But the cold air that settled in behind it is very noticeable this morning!  As expected, we have some upper 30s showing up out there… check out the low temperatures so far:

It’s more than 20-degrees colder than this same time yesterday…. the coldest we’ve been since late April… AND also about 10+degrees below normal.  Our Weatherchecker up in Tipp City called in with a temperature of 36-degrees, frost on the roof and frozen dew on the car!   High pressure controls our weather today, so expect quiet conditions.  Lots of sunshine will be the rule, as temperatures warm quickly into the mid-60s.  It will be another chilly morning Thursday, as we drop into the mid-40s… but then we’ll be warmer in the afternoon.  Highs in the 70s are expected both Thursday and Friday.

A weak front will actually come through on Thursday, but there won’t be a big weather change.  We’ll probably see more cloud cover in the afternoon, and the winds increase a bit.  A spotty sprinkle can’t be ruled out–especially across the north– but most won’t see rain.  A better chance of rain will be with a stronger system on Friday night.

This will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area.  Again, as I mentioned yesterday we will have to watch the timing for Friday night high school football games.  We will tweak the forecast as we get closer.  THEN temperatures drop behind this system for a cool fall weekend.  And, yes it WILL be Fall, as it officially begins Saturday morning!

  1. Jamie, I had a light frost on the roof this morning! 36 when I got up at 7.

    Looking ahead, which weekend will be the warmest, with the least chance of rain, for the Wapakoneta area…this weekend (Sept. 21-23), or next weekend (Sept. 28-30)?

    Thanks for the report Joe! It certainly was an EARLY taste of frost for the area!

    Hi, Pam! It’s too far out to tell what NEXT weekend will bring, but this weekend looks to be a 50/50 weekend. There is a chance of rain Saturday (but it won’t be a wash-out)… and drier conditions are expected on Sunday. It will be cool both days, with highs in the 60s. JJ

    Thanks, Jamie! I was hoping that you had a few models indicating general temps for next weekend. Have a great weekend!! :)
