Front brings big changes

Hopefully you were able to get outside and enjoy the wonderful day.  It was mild and windy but big chances are heading this way as a cold front pushes through tomorrow.  Take a look at today’s highs.  Another day in the upper 60′s.

If you look at high temperatures to our west you can see that there is a cold front evident and it’s a strong one.

Yep those chilly temperatures are heading for the Miami Valley.   As the cold front approaches Monday we are going to see three things:  1. Gusty winds 2. Rain 3.  Falling temperatures.

First the gusty winds – As the cold front approaches expect winds to gust to near 30 and 35 early tomorrow morning.  The winds will gradually diminish and switch direction as the front pushes through.

Second the rain – expect rain to start early in the morning first in the west then moving eastward as the days progress.

By lunchtime the entire Miami Valley will see the rain.

By 5pm the precipitation is coming to an end.  Notice that there’s a little pink and even some blue on Futuretrac. Yes there is a slight chance for some wet snow flakes to mix in with the rain but there’s a short period of time this will happen.  The colder air is going to come in just as the precipitation exits…if any snow does mix it will not be for long and will not accumulate.

Finally let’s talk about temperatures.  Monday is going to be the day where high temperatures are going to occur in the morning.  Ahead of the front morning temperatures will be in the 50′s but by the afternoon temperatures fall into the 40′s and by 5pm will be only near 40.

Skies begin to clear late Monday night as high pressure builds across the area however those clear skies will allow temperatures to crash into the 20′s for lows.  So winter is making an appearance once again.  The good news is temperatures will slowly moderate and dry conditions will stick around.
