September heat wave…September 10th, 2013 at 7:34 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
Monday’s official high in Dayton was 93-degrees… and was 14-degrees above normal (normal high is 79). Today, we are expecting another run at the lower 90s, and could even hit 90 again Wednesday. Three days in a row would make it an official heat wave! And to go along with the heat, we have the humidity. Dew points will be in the upper 60s/low 70s… so our heat index (or “feels like” temperature) will be in the upper 90s during peak heating today.
Rain chances still are fairly low. We expect a good deal of sunshine today, with maybe a 10% chance of a pop-up isolated shower/t’storm. On Wednesday, we’ll see a few more clouds in the area, and the chance of rain goes up a touch to 20%. Coverage still looks sparse, until we get to Thursday:
A cold front moving through will bring in more organized showers and thunderstorms. The front does look a bit slower, now expected to move through in the late morning/early afternoon. We will see a BIG drop in temperature and humidity behind the front. So while we’re feeling summer now–we will see a switch to fall by Friday! Expect highs to only reach the upper 60s by the end of the week, and lows drop into the mid-40s over the weekend. Aaaaahhhh.
