Fog then sunshine… and warming up!April 30th, 2013 at 6:56 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
High pressure building into the region is helping to create foggy conditions across the Miami Valley this morning:
Yesterday’s fog was light… but today it’s more dense in spots. At times, visibility will drop below a quarter of a mile. And the visibility will fluctuate as you travel around this morning–some spots will see no fog at all, others will have it quite thick. Here is a look at some of our weather cams from the morning drive:
You can see how things change from place to place! The area of high pressure will bring the sunshine back this afternoon. Yesterday, the clouds were stubborn and did not break as expected late day… so highs remained mild, in the lower 60s. Today, we do expect the sun to warm us quickly as we head into the afternoon hours, and we should top out about ten degrees above normal–going with 77 as our high.
The warming trend continues with sunshine and a southerly flow on Wednesday, as we should be up to that 80-degree mark. Dry weather sticks around Thursday… but a bit more cloud cover may hold temps down a couple degrees. Still warm, in the upper 70s. Tree pollen continues to run high, and with little change in the weather and lighter winds through the end of the week, we do expect pollen levels to stay in the high-to-very-high category, unfortunately.
Changes come as we approach the weekend. Friday, we’ll see a slight chance of a spotty shower or t’storm… mainly in our western counties. A better chance of scattered activity comes over the weekend as temperatures slowly cool.
