Temperatures–and winds–will be increasing…May 14th, 2013 at 6:45 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
High pressure is moving off to our east, and southerly winds have developed over the Miami Valley. With the help of a little cloud cover, our temperatures have been much warmer this morning… sitting in the mid-upper 40s:
We will remain dry today, even though we’ll be dealing with clouds for the morning and early afternoon. Expect more sunshine as we head past lunch time. With the sun and strengthening southerly winds, our highs will reach the mid-70s today… running just above normal.
Winds increase even more so on Wednesday–southwest flow 15-25 mph–so quite breezy. But with lots of sunshine, we will see highs push into the mid-80s! Talk about a warm-up!
The next rain chance arrives as early as Wednesday evening, as a front drops in from the north:
Initially, the rain chance will be confined to the northern counties, but a better chance of showers and thunderstorms moves through all of the Miami Valley Wednesday night into Thursday. And a good part of the day Thursday will be wet, as the front stalls over the region. This front will drift a bit farther south and then head back north as we head into the weekend… the exact placement will, of course, determine who has the best chance for rain each day. If you have outdoor plans, this is a forecast you’ll want to pay attention to… we will have a better idea of front location as we get closer.
Even if we do see rain here or there… we DO look to be warmer… and to stay warmer. Highs will be in the 70s and 80s, with lows in the 50s and 60s through next week. I’m officially planting!
