Last day under the influence of upper low–but next system arrives tomorrow!May 8th, 2013 at 7:53 am by Jamie Jarosik under Uncategorized, Weather
Once again, we are starting off cool and dry across the Miami Valley this morning. This afternoon looks very similar to yesterday (maybe a touch warmer) as the upper low is moving farther away, but still influencing our weather. We’ll see partly sunny skies, with the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms developing this afternoon as we heat up.
The nature of “scattered” activity, is that not everyone will see rain… but if you do you could see a heavier downpour or even a little bit of small hail. Yesterday, there was a fairly potent thunderstorm that came right through Dayton… but in Kettering all we got was a brief light shower and we heard some thunder.
Any rain will taper off through the evening, and Thursday will start off dry. The best chance at sun tomorrow is through the first part of the day… with again the clouds increasing and scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the late afternoon and evening. BUT these will be moving in from the WEST–the result of a *new* disturbance moving into the area:
Some of these thunderstorms will have the potential to produce stronger winds and hail, so for Thursday the severe weather threat is “Elevated”. The best shot at stronger storms will be in our northwest counties… we will continue to keep you posted!
