Showers today and a half and half weekend

October 19th, 2012 at 8:54 am by under Weather

A large area of low pressure located just to the west of us will keep us cool, mainly cloudy and showers throughout the day.  Spokes of energy will rotate around this low pressure area bringing showers to the area throughout the day.  Keep the rain gear handy for today and tonight.  It will also be a bit breezy with winds out of the southwest at about 10-15 mph.

If you’re planning on going to any high school football games tonight makes sure you bring along the rain gear.  While it won’t be a complete wash out there is a chance for showers to pop up and last through the game.  With the breezy winds you may need to grab a cup of hot chocolate WITH marshmallows :)

There’s also another event going on tonight and tomorrow night.  Aullwood is holding its enchanted forest.  Our own Karrie Rossmiller will be there in costume.  Can you guess what she will be?

This weekend is going to be a half and half.  There is definitely a better of the two days.  On Saturday temperatures will stay in the 50′s with a few morning showers and lots of clouds.  We’ll begin to see a few peeks of sunshine by the afternoon.

On Sunday things really improve as high pressure is nearby.  Look for lots of sunshine and temperatures in the middle 60′s!  It gets even better next week.  We’ll see temperatures in the lower 70′s which is about 10 degrees above normal.

Many of you have been asking what the winter will be like.  The Climate Prediction Center released its winter forecast.

As far as winter precipitation goes the Miami Valley has equal chances of either above or below normal precipitation.  I know it doesn’t help.  But there are no clear cut signs in several cycles that show us we would see more snow than normal.

Have a wonderful weekend! Jamie is back in Monday!
