Scattered showers possible this weekendJuly 6th, 2013 at 6:45 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
I’ve been on vacation for the past week and kept seeing text messages with flood warnings popping up on my phone. It wasn’t until I was with my family in Kentucky that I saw how much rainfall has fallen. I was along the Ohio River near Owensboro, KY on my Uncle George/Aunt Anna’s boat Wednesday and noticed “the river” was really high. Uncle George had to constantly keep his eyes peeled for tree limb floating in the water. He said that because the river was so high debris started floating in the middle of it. I ended up trying to water ski for the first time – that didn’t go well – but that’s for a different blog
One of our weather checkers Jim Allen in Springboro says he has had five inches of rainfall since Wednesday including 2.5″ since last night. Here’s a photo he sent to us.
There’s a flood warning for portions of the southern half of the area until 7:45pm.
Rainfall amounts for the southern sections of the Miami Valley have totaled near an inch. Here’s a look at Doppler radar estimates. Dayton is already about a half inch above normal for the month with rainfall.
Showers will be scattered tonight and tomorrow as well. It looks like if you want to try and mow the grass there’s a chance you’ll be able to sneak it in early in the morning.
Another round of showers is possible Sunday afternoon and Monday as well.
This unsettled weather pattern continues through much of next week. Keep the umbrella handy and the AC on because it’s going to remain humid and temperatures will rise for the first half of the week.
