Rain develops by evening… much cooler weekend ahead!September 21st, 2012 at 7:29 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
A system approaching the area will have clouds on the increase today, and eventually rain will develop. But we should stay dry through at least 3 or 4 pm, with a few showers in the area shortly after that. Futuretrac can give you an idea of how initially, the coverage of rain will be sparse:
But the showers then fill in–especially in the late evening and early overnight:
So potentially WET for some Friday night football games. Rainfall amounts should average out around a half inch, with some spots potentially seeing closer to one inch. Most of this rain will be out of the area by Saturday morning, but as I mentioned yesterday, another disturbance will swing through Saturday afternoon… and that could kick off a few more showers. While it won’t be a wash-out (and not everyone will even SEE a shower)… you may have to take cover for a short time as a shower or two moves through. Good news: most of our local festivals have tents/shelter! Meteorologist Tara Hastings will kick off the Germantown Pretzel Festival Saturday morning at 10am, and I will be pouring beer at the Dayton Art Institute Oktoberfest on Saturday night! Karrie Rossmiller will be at Aullwood’s Applefest, too. We hope you will stop by one of these events to say hello! And be sure to bring jackets to these weekend events, because it will be cool:
And just in time, as Fall officially begins at 10:49am on Saturday!
