A slow warming trend for the holiday weekend

May 25th, 2013 at 5:35 pm by under Weather

It was a chilly start across most of the Miami Valley as clear skies and light winds dropped our temperatures into the lower 40′s. Some areas in Ohio were under frost advisories and freeze warnings this morning!  Officially in Dayton we saw temperatures into the lower 40′s.


Saturday nights clear skies did produce a great view for the full moon.  One of our viewers sent this photo in via report!t. Thanks to Marsha Coleman of Kettering for sending us this great shot!

Temperatures are not going to fall into the lower 40′s again tonight because we have a bit more cloud cover this evening.  These clouds have been with us for most of the afternoon and they are from a series of showers to the west of us.


Look for these clouds to stick around tonight but I’m not expecting any rain.  The rain that is off to our west is falling apart and drifting to our south west.

Here’s where we’ll start out on Sunday morning.

Sunday 8 am tempsSunday 7am

We’ll see a mainly cloudy Sunday with some peeks of sun throughout the day.  Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer than what they were on Saturday. By Sunday evening after 5pm we’ll see a chance for a few scattered showers that will become a bit more numerous in coverage after 10pm.  If you have plans to go to any festivals on Sunday – you should be ok.  But bring along the rain gear if you plan on staying later in the evening.

As for Memorial Day – This is where the forecast gets a little tricky.  The computer models are now bringing in a better chance for rain across the Miami Valley.  I wouldn’t cancel any plans just yet – however be sure you have a back up plan for any outdoor activities.

The meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Wilmington put together a list of climate information for Dayton here.   Geez can you imagine seeing 95 degrees in May?

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and THANK YOU to all of those who have served or who are serving our country.
