Frost, fog and fifties–no–*sixties* in the forecast!!

January 10th, 2013 at 7:40 am by under Weather

We are starting off this morning with freezing fog that has formed in parts of the Miami Valley, along with black ice issues.  Freezing fog is just fog that forms when temperatures are below freezing.   We’ve had ideal fog forming conditions with the low level moisture content from the melting snow, and the rain we received yesterday morning.  Winds have also been light overnight, and we’ve had a bit of clear sky.  Whenever we have a situation like this, slick spots become more likely and Karrie has been reporting numerous accidents this morning that in some cases have been due to icy road conditions.  Use caution if you are out traveling early.

This afternoon, our temperatures will be very similar to yesterday as we top out in the mid-40s.  BUT the rain chances will be increasing.  This morning we’ve been watching rain move through Kentucky… this is the same area that will lift into the Miami Valley as a warm front pushes in.  BUT this does not happen until after lunchtime.  The southern counties will see it first, and it will lift north as we head into the mid-late afternoon hours:

Overnight, we will continue to see rainy conditions but temperatures say up–with lows in the lower 40s.  Friday’s best chance of rain will be through the first part of the day, with drier conditions in the afternoon and evening hours.  Here’s the rain forecast through Friday at 1pm:

A good soaking right there.  AND more is on the way.  Another 1″ plus will be possible over the weekend.  Along with the rain, we’re heading into an unseasonably warm airmass.  We are still expecting highs near 60 on Friday, and we could break the record high of 58-degrees.  Saturday will be even warmer as we climb into the lower 60s.
