Cold morning, still chilly this afternoon…

This morning was the coldest we’ve seen yet this season here in the Miami Valley.  Here’s a look at 8am temperatures:

The National Weather Service reports Springfield hit an official low of 19-degrees… and Hamilton dropped to 21-degrees.  The Dayton Airport checked in as cold as 26-degrees, and a few spots did report some freezing fog.  In southern Clark County, visibility dropped to a quarter-mile at times this morning.  And, FROST… oh, the frost.  Scraping the windshield was a must this morning, unless you parked in the garage.  OR were like me and just started the car early to let it run & warm up :)   We can expect a good deal of sunshine today, but temperatures continue to run about 10-degrees below normal.  We’ll see highs near 46.

Good news:  High pressure will still control our weather on Election Day…. so a dry forecast is in place while the polls are open!

As we head into the overnight hours, however, there is a pretty good shot at a few showers with a cold front moving through:

Snow will potentially mix in as well, but we’re not expecting any accumulation.  Wednesday early in the morning a few showers may linger, but the afternoon will be dry.  Beyond this, it’s a WARM UP for us!  Upper 50s by Friday, and woo-hoo… 60s for the weekend!
