As if it wasn’t cold enough… another cold front moves inJanuary 3rd, 2013 at 8:31 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
Once again, it’s a frigid morning here in the Miami Valley! High pressure has built in brought with it clear skies and light winds. Add to that snowpack and a cold airmass already in place, and you have a recipe for some COLD temperatures!
This afternoon, a cold front will move through the area. As I mentioned yesterday… there’s not a lot of moisture for this front to work with (dew points are in the single-digits!), so we likely won’t see any snowfall. A stray flurry would be possible across the far north, but that’s about it. The front moves away from the area overnight, and we remain in a cold airmass in it’s wake. As the clouds break up tonight, it will be another drop into the teens for us, with some outlying spots in the single digits. High pressure builds right back in for Friday, bringing the return of sunshine! BUT the winds will also increase a bit and that means a wind chill will be a factor in the forecast. We’ll hit highs in the mid-20s, but it will FEEL like the single digits and teens through the day, if you’re standing out in that breeze.
Finally. FINALLY a warming trend over the weekend! Highs will be near freezing both Saturday and Sunday, but there IS a slight chance of a few snow showers Saturday night into Sunday morning. At this point, accumulation looks minimal… and the warming trend continues next week!
