Severe weather threat over, but still a lot to deal with today…January 30th, 2013 at 9:23 am by Jamie Jarosik under Uncategorized, Weather
This morning, we had several severe thunderstorm warnings issued in the Miami Valley, despite not really having any thunder or lightning! A line of showers was still packing some pretty strong wind gusts–between 50-60 mph:
Very heavy rain came in that line, as well… and some locations saw those rainfall totals add up quickly. The Dayton International Airport picked up almost a half-inch in just 45 minutes! The line quickly moved east, but steady rain lingered for the rest of the morning drive. Even as we get a pretty decent break, we continue the chance for scattered showers into the afternoon hours.
Would you believe we hit a new record high today? And it happened just before 4am:
Yes, it was 65-degrees at 3:55am on January 30th… crazy! Most of the afternoon we will be hanging in the 50s… then a cold front moves through during the evening. This will bring in MUCH colder air, and any rain showers will transition over to snow showers. Some light accumulation is possible, and as temperatures dip to 20-degrees overnight, slick conditions will develop. Be aware of black ice for Thursday morning’s drive to work.
The cold then sticks around, with scattered snow showers through Thursday afternoon, and accumulations up to a half-inch. Friday will be the coldest day of the week!
