Turning much cooler for the weekend…

May 10th, 2013 at 7:13 am by under Weather

We had some pretty decent thunderstorms come through overnight, and some spots picked up around a half-inch of rain.  At times, winds got up near 40-45mph as the storms came through.  Here’s a look at some of the rainfall totals:

Today, more showers and thunderstorms are likely as a cold front approaches from the west:

This will be most likely in the afternoon and evening.  A small portion of the Miami Valley is under an Elevated Risk for severe storms today, with the main threat being strong winds and hail:

It looks like storms will get going in our area, and then strengthen as they head east.  We will keep an eye on it later today, and let you know if we get any watches or warnings… on-air, online at wdtn.com and on social media @WDTN.

Behind this cold front, we will see MUCH cooler air build into the region.  Yesterday we reached 80-degrees… today we’ll be closer to normal, but will continue to drop over the weekend:

So it does look much cooler, although dry, to celebrate MOM on Sunday!  And there is still a very good chance of frost Monday morning, with clear skies and light winds overnight. This will help temperatures drop into the mid-30s early Monday.  Bring in your potted plants!
