Warm with low rain chances…June 17th, 2013 at 8:07 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
I hope all the Dads had a great Father’s Day weekend! The weather was good at times–others, maybe not so much. A few showers affected parts of the Miami Valley each day… but each day also featured some dry/nice conditions that I hope you took advantage of! I had the pleasure of attending Mix 107.7′s Summerfest at Fraze & it was AMAZING. I saw Sheryl Crow at the same venue about 10 years ago… and I think she may sound even better today. She sang all the good old songs we all know… and a few new ones, too, which have a bit more “country” to them. I am not a huge country fan, but I did like what I heard! Thanks to all at WMMX for such a fun time!
With the rain we saw last week and over the weekend, we’ve caught up quite a bit to where we should be this time of year. Still need to see the rain every few days to stay in a good spot–the yearly deficit continues:
A front is stalling in the region today, and already this morning we’ve had a few isolated showers along this boundary. Most of the activity has been north of I-70, but the showers have been few and far between. We will continue to carry about a 10-20% chance of a shower/thunderstorm through the day, but most locations will stay dry, with little forcing. The best chance for any rain will be close to the boundary, as it ends up drifting south of Dayton. After morning fog lifts, we will see plenty of sunshine today as we climb into the mid-80s for highs. Our UV Index is very high:
Another front drops in for Tuesday, bringing a slightly higher rain chance to the area. We have a 30% chance for a few spotty showers or thunderstorms with this feature:
This second front will also bring in *slightly* cooler air. Tuesday’s high will be near 80-degrees, and on Wednesday we’ll only hit the upper 70s, for below-normal readings in the afternoon. Still, pleasantly warm and we expect a lot of sunshine for the middle part of the week, too! This will be a watering week, for sure, as the next rain chance doesn’t appear until next weekend.
