Coldest morning of the season so far… more to come

Today was the coldest morning we’ve seen yet this season in the Miami Valley.  Many locations dropped into the teens–the lowest the Dayton Airport has been since February of last year.  Here are some local temps–you can even see some single digits showing up!  This happened as the clouds broke up just enough in these spots to allow for the bottom to drop out:

Many also saw fog form, with the clearing skies and calm winds.  But we will enjoy some sunshine today, as high pressure builds in.  This feature will keep things quiet (but cold) in the area for the next 24-hours.  The next weather feature to watch is a cold front that drops in Thursday.  While we start the day with some sun, we will become mostly cloudy in the afternoon hours:

There’s not a lot of moisture to work with here, so chances for snow remain low.  But we can’t rule out a spotty flurry or light snow shower–especially across the northern counties.  This front will also reinforce the cold air in place.  The next several nights will see readings in the teens/single digits… and afternoons stay in the 20s.  There will be some moderation next weekend, with highs closer to freezing.  And another system brings in some clouds on Sunday–and possibly a few showers, too.  But, again, there’s not a lot of weather action over the next week or so!

Stay warm!
