Feeling more like winter for a couple days…

March 27th, 2015 at 8:53 am by under Weather

Northerly winds will continue today, keeping temperatures well below normal. Morning temps are in the 20s, and highs will only be in the mid-30s.

500

We are in an upper trough… so not only will we be cold, but clouds will fill in for parts of this afternoon. AND we couldn’t rule out a flurry or light snow shower. We don’t expect any accumulation, and high pressure will build in overnight, helping to clear out the clouds. This morning, the high is northwest of us, and you can see the cold air in place around it:

temps

We will be close to that cold Saturday morning, as the high moves in:

lows

And during the afternoon, the high will bring a good deal of sunshine to the area… but it will still be cold! Highs once again will be stuck in the 30s. We will see some rebound on Sunday. The jet stream will lift north, allowing warmer air into the Miami Valley:

500 2

Highs will push into the lower 50s, closer to normal. Sunday will start with sun, but clouds move in during the afternoon. There is also the slight chance of a few showers late in the day… but most of the day will be dry. Going through next week, we expect temperatures to be at or above normal, so there is something to look forward to!

I am off on Spring Break next week, and @MetTaraHastings will be holding down the forecast center in the morning. I hope you have a good one!

Rainy today and a colder stretch of weather is here…

March 26th, 2015 at 7:40 am by under Weather

A cold front moved through the Miami Valley, and now sits off to our south. Our winds have shifted in from the north and northwest, and this is helping to draw in colder air this morning:

temps

As the cold air continues to move in, temperatures will struggle this afternoon. We expect to hold steady in the low 40s all day–about 20-degrees cooler than yesterday’s high of 61! Notice the wave of low pressure on the surface map. That is moving right along the boundary, and helping to produce the rain we’ve been dealing with this morning:

satrad

Rain will fall steady through lunch, and then will become more scattered during the afternoon hours. We couldn’t rule out some wet snow mixing in across some of our northern counties… if you live up in Mercer, Auglaize, northern Darke, Shelby or Logan counties… don’t be surprised if you see some snowflakes today! We don’t expect any accumulation.

Tonight, we will dry out across the region, but it’s going to be COLD! Low temperatures drop down into the mid-20s, so watch for some slick spots developing overnight. On Friday, we’ll start the day with some sunshine, but clouds will fill back in as cold air continues to move into the region during the afternoon. A few scattered snow showers will be possible later in the day, again, with minimal accumulation. Highs only reach the mid-30s, however, so it will continue to be very cold!

Saturday will be another cold day, but the sun will be out. On Sunday, temperatures start to moderate and we’ll push into the 50s during the afternoon, and be fairly close to normal highs.

Warmer Wednesday… but it doesn’t last!

March 25th, 2015 at 7:46 am by under Weather

An area of low pressure to our west is pushing a warm front into the Miami Valley this morning:

temps

So as precipitation developed and moved through, it has been warm enough to see RAIN vs. any wintry precip. We have even seen some thunderstorms this morning… it’s a very Spring-like start to the day! The rain won’t last all day, and in fact, we expect most to be dry as we head beyond 8 am. The afternoon will be breezy and mild, and the sun will eventually come out. High temperatures climb well above normal:

highs

Enjoy it while you can! The cold front will eventually move through, and temperatures will drop. Take a look at the trend for the next few days:

trend

An area of low pressure will move along the front Thursday, bringing more rain to the area. And on Friday, as the cold air continues to advance in… we will be cold enough for scattered snow showers through the day. Any accumulation will be light. Saturday will continue to be cold, with morning temperatures in the upper teens to right around 20, and afternoon highs in the upper 30s.

Showers late today, warmer Wednesday…

March 24th, 2015 at 6:44 am by under Weather

We had snow and mixed precipitation affect the Miami Valley on Monday. Welcome to the first week of Spring, right?! The northern counties, as expected, picked up the most snow. The storm came through a little more potent  and we had some enhanced snow totals across the far north:

snow

Today, we are back to dry conditions. Clouds will be around through a good part of the day, but most of it will be dry. Temperatures will climb into the mid-40s this afternoon, after a cold start in the 20s. Here is the morning surface map… you can see a warm front south of us:

temps

That will lift into the area and bring the chance of showers back by late afternoon and evening. Initially, the showers will move into the south/southwestern counties late today:

forecast

And then spread area-wide during the evening and overnight:

forecast2

We could even hear some thunder tonight, and it will be breezy. As the southerly winds increase, temperatures will not drop off much at all, and we will have lows in the lower 40s. Expect a wet Wednesday morning, with showers around for the drive to work:

forecast3

But we will dry out in the afternoon, and it will end up being the warmest day of the week! It will become partly sunny, quite breezy… and we will see a high near 65-degrees! Of course it doesn’t last… a strong cold front brings more rain and thunder Wednesday night into Thursday… along with chilly temperatures.

A very active weather week ahead…

March 23rd, 2015 at 10:03 am by under Weather

After a really  nice weekend across the Miami Valley, we are getting back into an active weather pattern. This morning, we’ve seen clouds increasing as a disturbance to the west is moving eastward:

temps     satrad

Those showers to the northwest are going to head our way, too. Yes, some will see snow… and some will see accumulation. This is most likely to start across the northern counties as we head towards lunchtime, and then spread south through the afternoon. If you live along/north of I-70, you stand the best chance at staying all snow today… with some mixing possible as you travel along and south of I-70. Here is Futuretrac’s forecast for 3pm today:

forecast

Those that stay snow, will see the highest snow totals. This is what it looks like now:

snow

It’s not really what you want to see during the first week of Spring! But we will actually see a wide range of weather this week… take a look at the checklist:

checklist

There is the chance of showers pretty much each day of the week, but we will at least have a decent warm-up on Wednesday. Highs will get into the upper 60s with breezy conditions!

Cloudy and cool today, with rain arriving this evening…

March 19th, 2015 at 8:06 am by under Weather

High pressure north of the Miami Valley will keep most of us dry today. A storm system well to our south is already spreading clouds into the region, and they will be around through the afternoon, but the showers will stay south:

ld2hd

Cloudy and cool will be the rule, with highs reaching near normal values close to 50-degrees. Rain will spread in as we head toward late afternoon in the far south… and evening in the Dayton area. Here is how Futuretrac times it out…

5pm… rain moving in to the far southern counties:
forecast

7pm… rain moving into the Dayton area, mainly still south of I-70:
forecast2

11pm… rain falling in most of the Miami Valley:
forecast3

Everyone will see rain overnight, and the far northern counties could even see some wet snowflakes mixing in. We do not expect to see any snow accumulation. Rain will continue through Friday morning, so streets will be wet for the last morning rush of the week. We dry out and the clouds break up for Friday afternoon, and once again our highs will be right around normal. Something EXCITING happens on Friday… that we’ve all been waiting for!

spring

And for the first FULL day of Spring on Saturday… it will FEEL like Spring! Highs will make a run at 60, with partly cloudy skies and dry conditions. But a cold front moves through and then will drop temperatures for Sunday. We’ll be back to highs in the 40s through much of next week.

Much cooler weather for the rest of the week…

March 17th, 2015 at 8:35 am by under Weather

I hope you got to get out and enjoy the 70s Monday afternoon! The official high was 71 degrees, shortly after 5pm. Here is a look back at the past 24-hours:

temps observed

Over the past two hours, a cold front has been moving through the Miami Valley. Many have seen the winds shift in from the north and increase… and this is dropping temperatures even more. Get ready for a much cooler St. Patrick’s Day!

holiday

We will see temperatures in the mid-40s for most of the day, and with the breeze it will feel even colder! Wind chills will dip into the upper 30s. We have a lot of clouds in place this morning, but they should clear out a good deal during the afternoon. And if your’e heading out to the First Four games this evening, you might actually want a warmer jacket, it will continue to turn cold:

event

 

Our low tonight will actually drop down into the mid-20s! So it will feel frigid Wednesday morning. The rest of the week will be at or below normal temperature-wise. We will see highs in the upper 40s, and lows down in the low to mid 30s. For what it’s worth, Spring officially starts Friday!

Really really nice to start the week… then back to normal…

March 16th, 2015 at 8:25 am by under Weather

We had a gorgeous weekend–I really hope you got to enjoy the nice weather. Highs both Saturday and Sunday made it up near 60-degrees! The sun was a nice addition, too. :)

Today, we’re starting off nice, as our morning temperatures have been in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Not bad, nice and cool! High pressure is south of us… we will have a west-southwest wind today, and it will be a little breezy.

temps

Expect a mix of sun and clouds, and a high near 70 degrees! Soak it up, because this cold front will bring changes:

temps2

That drops in late tonight and into Tuesday morning. We will see an increase in clouds as it moves through, and we can’t rule out a few sprinkles in spots early Tuesday. But we expect mainly dry conditions through much of St. Patrick’s Day… just cooler weather, with highs in the lower 50s:

event

That high is actually much closer to normal for this time of year, and we will be at-or-below normal for the rest of the week beyond today. I know it may be hard to accept, but normal lows are just below freezing, and we have at least a couple mornings in the upper 20s over the next week or so. But Spring officially starts on FRIDAY!!

Rain returns as we finish off the week…

March 13th, 2015 at 9:24 am by under Weather

We had a pretty nice morning in the Miami Valley, as clouds and a southeast wind helped to hold temperatures in the lower to mid 40s in most spots. However, this will not last all day! Rain is moving in from the west, and will continue to overspread the area through lunchtime. Check Live Doppler 2HD to track the rain today. Most will be dealing with wet weather by noon:

FORECAST

This afternoon looks quite soggy, with rain falling steady through a good part of the day. Imbedded heavier rain will also be possible, and we have flooding concerns… especially in areas south of Dayton, which is the most likely place rainfall will exceed one inch:

RAIN

Rain will continue to fall this evening, so if you’re heading out to dinner… or going to watch the DAYTON FLYERS play in the A 10 Tournament :) … be prepared for wet weather! Rain continues tonight and even through Saturday morning. We will see a gradual drying trend Saturday afternoon, and it will be a cool day with lots of clouds:

FORECAST2

The sun returns for Sunday, and even though we’ll start off cold in the morning (temps in the 30s)… it will be a nice, cool afternoon as we hit highs in the lower 50s. It gets even warmer on Monday, as southerly winds increase! We are talking sunshine and mid-60s! THAT is going to feel great! But it doesn’t last long. We turn cooler on Tuesday, and take a look at the extended temperature forecast:

TREND

Much of the eastern part of the country will be below normal. Enjoy the warmer days while you can!

One more nice day before rain returns…

March 12th, 2015 at 9:23 am by under Weather

We’ve had a couple foggy mornings here in the Miami Valley! And I have received some pretty cool comparisons. One happened in just a matter of hours. This picture from Dayton… showing what it looked like in the morning, and then in the afternoon from the same vantage point:

fog 1

Very cool comparison! Another set of pictures shows us how things changed in 24 hours. Yesterday, a lot of the Miami Valley saw sun after a foggy start… with the exception of some of our northern counties. Amy up in Ft. Loramie (Shelby Co) says the sun only peeked out a few times, and the low stratus deck was quite stubborn. Good news for you, it is a different story today, as clouds broke early:

fog 2

It’s going to be a great day today!! Even though it’s been a chilly morning, the afternoon looks fantastic! You can’t beat this:

today

I really hope you can soak today up, because our next storm arrives on Friday. We will see rain spreading in from the southwest in the morning… and it will overspread all of the Miami Valley as we head into the afternoon:

FORECAST

It will fall steady… and even heavy at times. Many spots will see around an inch or even more than that. The best chance at some of the heavier precipitation will be in the southern half of the Miami Valley. Be prepared for some localized flooding issues in the spots that pick up decent and prolonged downpours. Ponding of water on the roads will be common, and area water ways will continue to run high!

Rainy today, then right back to nice weather

March 10th, 2015 at 7:46 am by under Weather

A storm system to our southwest is lifting north, and bringing Gulf moisture right along with it. This means rain today:

TEMPS       satrad

The rain will fall steady through a good part of the day. Steady rain will taper to scattered showers as we head towards evening. Even though it will rain most of the day, it will be a light to moderate rain… so accumulation won’t be out of control. Here is an idea of how much we’ll see… lesser amounts across the northern counties, and higher amounts south:

rainfall

Rain will fall even heavier in parts of southern Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. These locations could see over an inch of rain, and have a Flood Watch in effect. For us, showers end overnight, and high pressure builds in for Wednesday. We will start off with clouds in the morning, but they should break up for a mostly sunny afternoon. This will help temperatures push into the mid-50s for a nice, cool afternoon.

It will be even warmer on Thursday! We expect sunshine and highs in the upper 50s, close to 60 in spots! Then the next storm moves in for Friday and Saturday. We expect more rain out of this one, and it could be heavy at times. Models are indicating an inch or more will be possible, and with the ground saturated from melting snow and today’s rain… we could be dealing with some localized flooding. So stay tuned to the forecast as the situation develops!

Even though we look to cool off a bit on Sunday, we should be fairly close to normal, with highs in the mid-upper 40s.

Highs in the 50s for days…

March 9th, 2015 at 9:23 am by under Weather

While this morning has been cold, with temperatures in the low 30s (and even a few upper 20s)… we will continue a warming trend in the Miami Valley. Today, we climb up a degree or two higher than Sunday, and expect to be a little warmer Tuesday and Wednesday:

TEMP TREND

BUT there are rain chances in there!

Today looks dry, with a lot of sunshine in fact. We may notice clouds increasing late this afternoon, and that will continue into the evening. There is an area of low pressure developing in Texas today that will then lift northeast toward the Miami Valley:

TEMPS

We become mostly cloudy tonight, and start Tuesday with clouds for the early morning drive to work:

FORECAST

By mid-morning, rain will be spreading into the southern counties:

FORECAST2

That area of rain will continue to lift north, and reach the Dayton area by late morning. Periods of rain continue into the afternoon:

FORECAST3

The northern counties may see a few showers, but most of the rain will fall south of a line from Richmond to Greenville to Sidney. And even though we’ll see clouds and rain, we still expect to push into the 50s for highs!

The sun returns with high pressure on Wednesday and Thursday, and these will likely be the warmest days of the week. Hopefully you can get out and enjoy this taste of Spring… hit up a park, take a walk, or go for a bike ride! Enjoy it while we can, as we will likely still have some colder days to deal with!

Snow ends… now record cold possible…

March 5th, 2015 at 9:37 am by under Weather

The system that brought light snow accumulation to the Miami Valley is moving away from us today. We saw anywhere from a dusting in areas north of I-70… to a half-inch at the Dayton airport… to three inches in eastern Kettering… but overall, we got away easy compared to locations just south of the Miami Valley. Take a look at some of the morning snow totals from Kentucky and south central Ohio:

snow list       SNOW

We will have to deal with clouds through a good part of the day. They may break a bit later this afternoon, but Arctic air is spilling into the region, so there will not be much of a warm-up. Once again, we could be flirting with record cold both with our afternoon high today, and our low temperature tonight:

rec low high       rec low

If you are sick of the cold, hang in there… there are signs of a WARM UP!! We should be up near 40-degrees both Saturday and Sunday. And next week, I am thinking 50s for Wednesday and Thursday!

Another push of winter later this afternoon and evening…

March 4th, 2015 at 9:55 am by under Weather

We have another wave of moisture set to work into the Miami Valley later this afternoon. It looks like the best chance will come after 3pm. Initially, we could see a mix of snow and sleet across the southern Miami Valley, with snow more likely across the central portion of the viewing area. The drive home from work would be affected:

FORECAST

Temperatures will be dropping into the upper 20s as we head toward late afternoon and evening, so slick conditions will be possible. We will continue to see snow into the overnight hours, before it tapers off early tomorrow morning. There could be a few lingering snow showers Thursday morning, but this would mainly be across the southern counties. Here is the latest snowfall forecast:SNOW

The most recent models are taking the heavier snow a bit farther south. Again, by the tight gradient above, you can see that even a slight shift will have a huge impact on who sees what! So stay tuned, and be aware that as you travel south you will get into heavier snow and tricker travel conditions.

Much colder weather will follow this system, and we will drop back to near 10 degrees tonight, with highs on Thursday not getting out of the teens. Friday morning, expect single digits, and sub-zero wind chills.

Active pattern continues, with several potential problems…

March 3rd, 2015 at 9:36 am by under Weather

This morning we’ve seen periods of freezing rain and sleet in the Miami Valley. The concentration has been highest along/north of I-70, but we did have a few light showers that passed through Preble, Montgomery and Greene counties early on. More showers have developed to the west, and are filling back in over the region. Temperatures are still below freezing, so anything that falls will freeze on contact with untreated surfaces:

ld2hd     9am temps

Be aware that travel will continue to be slick through the rest of the morning. Notice the southern areas already up at 30-degrees… warmer air is on the way for the afternoon! As we head beyond noon, we expect a significant warm up for the Miami Valley, as we push into the mid-40s.

This will end the threat of freezing rain, and we expect on and off rain showers the rest of the day. It could fall heavy at times, especially as a cold front approaches this evening/tonight. This is when Futuretrac is forecasting the heaviest rain:

forecast

As you can see the southern & eastern counties stand the best chance at seeing the heavier rainfall. This could lead to flooding concerns with the snow melt and heavy downpours. So be on the lookout for high water… always a danger, but especially at night.

Then, to add to the complexity of the forecast… the potential for accumulating snow late Wednesday into Thursday. Remember that push of moisture I mentioned in yesterday’s blog? The one that would be mainly south of us, but that we had to watch? Well, it now looks to be a little farther north. With colder air in place, we will likely see snow… especially in the southern half of the Miami Valley. This is a very early look at snowfall potential… which will likely have to be tweaked as the disturbances organizes and moves in:

snow

Then we will turn colder. Thursday and Friday mornings, we dip into the single digits, and Thursday’s high will likely not get out of the teens. Oh, Winter, enough already!

A quiet day in-between storms…

March 2nd, 2015 at 7:35 am by under Weather

High pressure is building in for the day ahead, and this means nice quiet weather before the next storm arrives tomorrow. Morning temperatures have dropped into the teens across the Miami Valley, so watch for black ice for the drive to work. We have several school closings/delays because of slick conditions, and you can always get the full list here: WDTN SCHOOL CLOSINGS/DELAYS.

There may be MORE school delays to deal with on Tuesday, as the next storm system moves in. It will arrive in the early morning… and initially, it will be cold enough for some sleet or freezing rain throughout the Miami Valley:

forecast

We could pick up some light ice accumulation, which would make for a slick morning drive. Temperatures will warm to above freezing as we head into mid and late morning, so we will see a change over to rain… with improving travel conditions. And it will be a significant warm-up for the afternoon, with highs getting up near 50-degrees! We expect on and off showers during the day, with breezy conditions. As the front approaches us in the late afternoon and evening, there will be the potential for heavy rain in some areas:

forecast 2

And with the snow on the ground… melting + heavy rain (could) = flooding problems. The ground will be extremely saturated, so run-off will be an issue… be sure you stay tuned to the forecast for the latest.

As the system pulls away on Wednesday, colder air will be working back into the region. So we will see the slight chance of rain/snow showers in the morning. There are then model differences on what will happen Wednesday EVENING. There looks to be a zone of snow developing south of us… how far north this will be is in question. So stay tuned to the forecast on this, as well!

Winter storm update…

March 1st, 2015 at 5:58 am by under Weather

The northern portion of the Miami Valley has been upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning, in effect until 10pm. The southern counties remain under a Winter Weather Advisory, in effect until 10pm for Preble, Montgomery and Greene counties… and until 3pm for Butler, Warren and Clinton counties:

adi_svr_watch_warning

All counties will see accumulating snow today, but some mixing is possible across the south, which will limit snow totals somewhat. We expect the potential for freezing rain or rain mainly from Dayton southward. In locations that remain all snow, accumulation will be higher. The northern counties in the Warning could pick up as much as 5″-7″… while portions of Preble, Montgomery and Greene receive more like 3″-5″. And Butler, Warren and Clinton will likely pick up less than that.

Snow will continue through much of the day, with a bit of a lull in the later afternoon… and then another increase in coverage during the evening. Roads will be snow covered and slick in many areas through a good part of the day. Where we see rain mix in, there will be melting, and roads will become wet and slushy… but still slick.

As temperatures drop this evening and overnight, icy conditions will develop. Our low temperature will drop down near 20-degrees. Look for the return of sunshine on Monday, but another system will move in on Tuesday. This one may slow the morning commute with some early freezing rain… but we really warm up during the day! It will feel like Spring, with highs near 50… however, the potential for heavy rain exists. This could lead to some flooding, with snowmelt and saturated grounds.

Frigid finish to the week, with some weekend warming…

February 27th, 2015 at 8:11 am by under Weather

We will come close to a couple more cold weather records over the next 24 hours. First, a record low high temperature this afternoon.

RECORD LOW HIGH FOR TODAY:   15°
FORECAST HIGH FOR TODAY:          15°

High pressure building in will bring us lots of sun today, and we expect dry weather this afternoon. Tonight, skies will remain clear, and we will come very close to another record:

RECORD LOW FOR SATURDAY:       -3°
FORECAST LOW FOR SATURDAY:   -2°

With all the talk of record cold, you would think we would be at the end of one of the coldest Februaries on record! You would be correct!

cold

While we will be frigid today through tomorrow, it does not look like we will be cold enough to crack the top 3. And going into a new month on Sunday, we will get into a warm up:

TREND

BUT it will be very lion-like on Sunday morning, because it will still be cold enough for snow. And as moisture moves in Saturday night into Sunday, we do expect to see some snow accumulation! So if you need to be out and about early, be prepared for a messy drive, with at least a couple inches of snow possible. We will warm enough the the afternoon to see snow mix with and then change over to rain. Highs reach the upper 30s. Back to snow as we cool off Sunday night, and then most of Monday will be dry.

On Tuesday, moisture returns to the area, and in the morning we could see a brief period of freezing rain before temperatures warm above freezing. Tuesday may actually feel like Spring to you, as highs climb into the mid-40s, and we could see periods of heavy rain! I would not even be surprised to hear a rumble of thunder. Flooding would be a concern, too, as the snowpack will rapidly melt. Stay tuned to the forecast as we head into a very active pattern!

A quiet day today before more snow showers and Arctic air…

February 25th, 2015 at 8:28 am by under Weather

This morning we are starting out much warmer than yesterday morning. Really, anywhere from 10 to 30 degrees warmer! While Tuesday’s official low in Dayton was only -2, many other local areas were even colder. Here is a list of some of the lowest numbers recorded:

LOWS

That -14 at the Base is actually a new record low for the date, breaking the previous record of -11 set back in 1951.

We’ve been with southerly winds overnight, so temperatures are holding in the teens ahead of a weak cold front:

TEMPS

The front is not bringing in a huge sensible weather change, however. We will just continue with below-normal temperatures, as we top out in the mid-20s today. Overnight, the NEXT disturbance moves in. You can see it in the north central US this morning:

SATRAD

This feature will weaken as it heads our way, but we do expect it to bring some light snow showers to the area late tonight and into the day Thursday:

FORECAST

So some could start off with a slick morning drive… most likely across the northern half of the Miami Valley, initially.  Overall snow accumulation looks light, as most will see an inch or less… but a few across the far north could see just over one inch.

This disturbance brings in another push of very cold air for the second half of the week, too. Take a look at forecast high temperatures:

TREND

And we should drop below zero both Friday and Saturday mornings. Thursday through Saturday morning, we will once again be flirting with record cold!

Frigid weather continues through the end of the week…

February 24th, 2015 at 9:23 am by under Weather

Although today and Wednesday will be warmer than yesterday (when we hit a high of 16)… we will continue to run about 20-degrees below normal through the end of the week. We will see highs in the lower 20s this afternoon, but it has been a frigid morning. Here is a look at some of the low temperatures in the region:

LOWS

High pressure brought a wide range of temperatures, locally. With clear skies, light winds and snow pack on the ground… we saw everyone below zero, but some were MUCH colder than others. Dayton officially dropped to -2, so we missed the record low by 1-degree today! Some of the colder readings I saw were -13 in Urbana, -17 in Tipp City, and -19 in Springfield! BRRRRR for sure!

We will enjoy a lot of sunshine through the first part of today, with an increase in cloud cover in the late afternoon. Winds will pick up from the southwest as high pressure slips east, and a cold front moves in from the northwest.

We can’t rule out a few flurries or light snow showers overnight, but accumulation won’t amount to more than a dusting in spots. Temperatures won’t drop immediately behind the front, so highs will again be in the 20s on Wednesday. BUT another push of bitter cold IS on the way for the second half of the week. A more potent disturbance heads our way for Wednesday night/Thursday. This will bring in a better chance of snow showers, which look to give us some light accumulation. We will finish the week on a frigid note, too, coming close to not only record cold high temperatures Thursday and Friday… but record low temperatures, too. Here are the current records:

RECORDS

We will be close to all of those values!
