Frosty start…but what a warm-up this week!

May 13th, 2013 at 6:07 am by under Weather

It was a MUCH cooler weekend, as expected, across the Miami Valley.  Sunday morning, temperatures dropped into the 30s with clear skies… and we did have some scattered frost to start the day.  THIS morning, we’ve actually had a bit of cloud cover which has helped to hold temperatures UP.  You can see colder readings in spots that had clear skies through the overnight:


But the clouds are breaking up through sunrise, and that will allow temps to drop into the upper 30s for most… mid 30s for some.  A Frost Advisory is in effect through 9am.  I was able to hold off on the planting (although I was VERY tempted to get things in the ground a few times)… and I brought in all the items the past two nights.  I do plan on actually planting my flowers this week, as we look to be in a warmer stretch… and we’re getting later into the season.  It’s mid-May for crying out loud!   ;)

We do expect a significant warm up this week:


If you do your planting, you will have to water a bit, as the next chance of rain doesn’t show up until Thursday.  We will remain unsettled right through the weekend, with a frontal boundary draped across the region.  Exactly where this boundary ends up will determine HOW unsettled we will be.  Stay tuned.
