High and dry for most of us until Monday

November 9th, 2012 at 8:17 am by under Weather

High pressure is still our main weather-player through the weekend.  As it’s centered over Ohio this morning, it’s bringing about another cold and frosty start to the day.  BUT winds have already shifted in from the south, and this will finally help bring that warming trend we’ve been expecting!  Sunshine and southerly winds help to push highs into the upper 50s today:

As dry conditions continue, it looks like some great weather for high school football playoff games this evening–temperatures will start off in the lower 50s, and will fall into the upper 40s by the 4th quarter!  Good luck to all the teams still in it!

There is just a SLIGHT chance of a stray shower grazing our northern counties overnight.  This would be Mercer and Auglaize… maybe northern Shelby… and the chance is only 10-20%.  Something we can’t quite leave out of the forecast!  But again, it’s back to sunshine over the weekend.

Aaaaand, it’s mid-upper 60s for the weekend–do you believe it?!  It certainly doesn’t FEEL like we’re heading into the holiday season, but there ARE only two weeks until Thanksgiving.  And Christmas decorations and even trees are going up left and right!  The City of Dayton put up the downtown tree yesterday, and on Wednesday, I watched the City of Kettering’s tree go up in Lincoln Park:

If you are going to put up any decorations this weekend, the one thing you’ll have to watch is the WIND.  Winds will be southwest around 10-20 mph both Saturday and Sunday… with higher gusts.  Enjoy the warm-up… because a cold front on Monday will drop temperatures back into the chilly 40s.  That is also our next chance of rain, with thunderstorms even possible!
