Fast-moving system may bring a little snow…

October 22nd, 2013 at 7:42 am by under Weather

A cold front brought some rain to the area overnight, and MUCH COLDER air has been moving in behind this front.  Today has been our coldest morning since mid-April (the last time we were in the low-30s).  Here is a look at 7am temps:

High pressure will build in briefly today, bringing some sunshine and dry conditions.  But it’s still going to be cold!  Highs will struggle to get up to 50-degrees, as we run 10+ degrees below normal.  Not to mention, there is an area of low pressure that will quickly work in this evening, bringing the return of showers to the area:

forecast

This will be rain during the evening and early overnight… and with temperatures in the 40s, it will feel raw!  Then, late tonight, as temperatures drop… there is the potential for a mixing in of snow… or even a brief change-over.  We do not expect much accumulation 1) because temperatures will stay just above freezing in most spots… and 2) because the ground is still too warm.  Most will melt on contact.  The exception may be grassy surfaces and/or bridges and overpasses.  So this could impact the morning commute, although minimally; it will be more of a nuisance snow than an impact snow.  Be sure to catch the 10pm news on the Dayton CW… or at 11pm on WDTN.  Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis will have a full update on this approaching storm!

Any precipitation will move out for Wednesday afternoon, and the clouds will break a bit.  Even though there will be a little sun at times, it is still going to be a chilly day.  Highs will only reach the mid-40s, and we won’t get out of the 40s through the rest of the week!  Overnight lows will again go below freezing Thursday through Saturday.
