Dreary morning, but warming this week…

April 29th, 2013 at 6:34 am by under Weather

We are starting off with lots of low clouds, fog and even some mist and drizzle this morning.  The slight chance of a spotty shower will continue through early afternoon, as we stick with lots of clouds today as seen on our Futuretrac forecast model:

Clouds look to break a bit in the late afternoon and evening hours, so we should see a bit of sun before it sets.  Overnight we will be partly cloudy and dry… and we do expect more in the way of sunshine on Tuesday as a warming trend takes hold of the region.  Here is a look at how high temps play out:

You can bet pollen counts will be high again, as generally dry conditions will be with us through Thursday.  We do look to be a bit more unsettled as we get to the end of the week and weekend.  There are still a lot of questions regarding this extended forecast as an area of low pressure will move slowly towards the region.  It looks to be cut off/blocked by the end of the week, and we could be right on the edge of an area of clouds and precip:

So while not a wash-out, the chance of showers & thunderstorms may be with us for a few days.  We will keep you posted on our thinking as we head through the week!

This past weekend, I was so excited to be a part of the very first activity held in Kettering’s new Habitat & Environmental Center–previously known as Southdale Nature Center.  I actually went to camp at this facility in elementary school… so it was even more special to go back and talk weather with local children.  Here are some pictures from my visit.

Very soon, a permanant weather display–sponsored in part by WDTN–will be up for all to see.  They are also working on recycling/energy displays… and have lots of critters to meet & greet you.  Hope everyone gets to check out this fantastic nature facility!
