Storm moves away… now it’s colder…

Rainfall was plentiful across the Miami Valley over the past two days.  Here’s a look at some of the totals:

rain 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:

Happy National Grilled Cheese Sandwich day, by the way! :)   I hope you have a good one & a fabulous weekend!
