Low slow to leave…

May 7th, 2013 at 5:56 am by under Weather

As expected, yesterday’s rainfall totals were highest in our southern coutnies–closer to the upper low we’ve been tracking for days.  Here are some of the numbers, called in by our Weathercheckers:

rain totals

We are still STILL dealing with that pesky upper low, which is keeping our weather unsettled here in the Miami Valley.  This morning, an isolated shower cannot be ruled out, but the rain will not have quite the coverage it had yesterday.  The low is located over the Carolinas today:

500

Around the back side of this feature, we will continue to see clouds streaming in from the east… and the potential for more showers.  The best shot of rain will come with some heating during the afternoon hours.  We couldn’t rule out a rumble of thunder, but that chance will be a little higher on Wednesday.  Yes, the rain chances continue beyond today… here is a look at a very unsettled stretch:

Right now, it looks like Thursday will start dry… with the rain chance returning in the afternoon and evening hours as the NEXT disturbance moves in.  Scattered activity is possible Friday & Saturday, with a slow-moving front… and finally, a drying trend for Sunday–Mother’s Day.  We will also be cooling for Mother’s Day, as highs will struggle to make it above 60-degrees.  AND you know how we usually say, “Don’t do any planting until after Mother’s Day” ?  Well we say this for good reason… it looks like this year we actually do have the potential for FROST the day after Mother’s Day!  Plant with caution this weekend :)
