A spring feelingJanuary 12th, 2013 at 6:28 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
So I went on vacation to visit my family last weekend and when I left there were several inches of snow on the ground. Now that I am back the snow is gone and we’re breaking record highs. Of course remember what goes up must come down. Don’t worry winter like temperatures will be here soon.
Friday we broke a record high but today we were several degrees off. However we’re still well above normal.
Yeah these numbers you usually don’t see in January. There’s going to be some big changes. The first one will be heavy rain then falling temperatures. First the rain:
There is a Flood Watch in effect for the central and northern half of the Miami Valley until Sunday afternoon. We already have several swollen rivers due to the recent snow melt and now we’re going to see some heavy rain. This will make for some high water.
The heaviest rain looks like it will stay to our west near Indiana – however we will still see a significant amount. Look for the rain to begin later tonight. It will start off light but then pick up right around daybreak.
There may be a small lull by the noon hour Sunday but another round of heavier rain moves northward for the afternoon.
Rainfall amounts will vary but generally we’ll see about 1-1.5″ of rainfall out of this system.
Once the rain moves out late Sunday we return to “normal.” Which means temperatures fall right back into the 30′s.
