Weak disturbance this AM, but still the nicest day of the week

A weak disturbance is approaching this morning, and it has kicked off a few spotty showers out there.  Here’s the 7:30am shot of Live Doppler 2HD:

This disturbance will be out of here by lunchtime, and we are expecting to see plenty of sunshine as we head into the afternoon hours.  You can see behind the band of clouds in Indiana… we do get into clearing:

Highs should be able to warm well into the 70s… in fact, mid-to-upper 70s are possible! All week long, we’ve been in the 60s… but not only will today be the warmest day of the week… it will be the warmest day since mid-September (we last hit 76-degrees on Sept 16th).  Summer’s last hurrah?  Perhaps.  A strong cold front approaches us on Friday.  It’s slowing down a bit, but should move into the northern counties as we head into the early afternoon… temperatures up that way will remain cool all day, with an increase in cloud cover and scattered showers developing.

The central and southern Miami Valley stand a better chance of rain Friday afternoon, evening and overnight.  Yes, it does look like rain will be around for Friday night football games… but the threat of actual thunderstorms is low.  Behind this front, as we’ve been talking about all week long… colder air will spill into the region.  Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be very cool–in the lower 50s.  Still looking at frost potential for Sunday and Monday mornings, as we dip into the mid-30s.  Outlying spots may reach freezing.  Jackets will definitely increase in thickness this weekend!
