Showers and warmer temps for the holiday

May 26th, 2013 at 6:00 pm by under Weather

We saw several hours of some hazy sunshine before more clouds worked into the Miami Valley this evening.  If you were in the sun it felt a little warmer than 69 degrees but that was our official high today.

Clouds are creeping eastward through the evening as a batch of rain is pushing closer to the Miami Valley.  We may see a few showers in the south and western half of the area after 7pm.  I think the bulk of the shower threat will occur overnight.

As we head into Memorial Day rain chances will increase.  The best chance of rain will be during the first half of the day.  If you have any plans outside like parades or picnics bring along the rain gear.  If you have plans later in the afternoon – like after 5pm the rain chances decrease.  Take a look at our Future Trac forecast model:

The National Weather Service in Wilmington looked at the climate history for Memorial Day in Dayton.  As far as raining on the holiday we’ve seen dry conditions in Dayton about 53% of the time.  But this year we’ll have some measurable rain for the record books.

There’s a slight chance for a few isolated showers for Tuesday afternoon as temperatures climb into the lower 80′s.   However we’ll be dry for Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the middle to upper 80′s.

Have a wonderful holiday!
