Storm moves away… now it’s colder…April 12th, 2013 at 8:46 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
Rainfall was plentiful across the Miami Valley over the past two days. Here’s a look at some of the totals:
Notice the bullseye of 2+” north of Dayton. Some of our northern counties are included, and that is where water is running very high. A flood warning is in effect for Miami & Shelby Counties, along the Great Miami River. Minor flooding is likely near the west side of Custenborder field in Sidney:
The river should crest this evening & fall below flood stage overnight. Measurable rain is pretty much done for the day, although we can’t rule out a spotty sprinkle or brief light shower later this afternoon.
The BIG story today is the cold air that has moved in. At 7am, we dropped down to 39-degrees in Dayton… which is about 15-degrees colder than the same time yesterday. The chill will last into the afternoon, with highs running about 10-degrees below normal with breezy conditions. And although we won’t be fighting soaking rains at the Dragon’s rescheduled home-opener this evening… it will be quite cold! Be sure you have some warm ball park attire
Saturday also looks to be a cool day, but then some recovery for the second half of the weekend & into next week:
