Warmer and slightly humidMay 18th, 2013 at 5:37 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
A stalled boundary is still the focus for our cloud cover and scattered showers this weekend. We’ll continue to see the clouds this evening. There’s a slight chance for a few scattered showers. As of 6pm there are a few showers and thunderstorms in the southern half of the Miami Valley. Be sure to head to wdtn.com to get the latest scan of Live Doppler 2HD.
Despite the cloud cover this afternoon we did see our highs in the middle 70′s which is a few degrees above normal.
This evening we’ll see a slight chance for a few showers and storms to develop. But they are going to be very isolated in nature.
None of the storms that develop will be severe – however out west it’s a different story. There are tornado watches in effect as a large storm system produces severe weather there.
Back here in the Miami Valley we’ll see more clouds heading into Sunday. A little bit of sun may spark a few showers and storms in the afternoon but again they will be isolated in nature.
One thing you’ll notice – and probably noticed today – is an increase in humidity. Dew point values are in the lower 60′s so it feels slightly sticky. However Sunday dew point values will rise into the middle and upper 60′s which means it’s going to feel a bit more uncomfortable.
Monday looks like it will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the middle to upper 80′s. Temperatures stay in the lower 80′s for the first half of the work week but right now it looks like the Memorial Day weekend may be dry!
Have a great weekend!
