Today will be much like yesterday….cloudy and cool. Temperatures will stay in the lower 30′s. Clouds will stick around and there’s a slight chance for a few flurries this afternoon. The best chance will be after 2 p.m.
There’s a storm system producing snow to the west of us in Missouri, and western Illinois. It will weaken as it moves eastward.
We’ll have another cold start Friday morning with temperatures in the 20′s but for the afternoon clouds will clear. Look for some sunshine during the afternoon.
We’re keeping an eye on a storm system that will head this way next week. At first we’ll see warmer temperatures move this way which means rain. However the colder air will filter into the area behind the storm and it will turn colder, windy and we may see some snow. It all depends on the track of the storm and when the cold air arrives…BUT there’s a a chance we could have a White Christmas. So you’re saying there’s a chance? YES I’m saying there’s a chance.
Well we have quite a difference this morning than yesterday morning. Yesterday we were in the 40′s and today we’re right around freezing. Much of us are seeing temperatures 15 to 20 degrees cooler today than yesterday.
We’re seeing gusty winds out of the west. Wind chill values are in the 20′s.
There is a few flurries and a few pockets of drizzle. Due to the temperature around freezing there may be some slick spots on area roadways.
The precipitation will come to an end by late morning but the clouds will hang around the area. We may see a few peeks of sunshine before it sets tonight.
Look for a mostly cloudy skies again Thursday. There’s a slight chance we may see a few flurries by the afternoon and evening.
Temperatures will stay below normal for the next few days. It will feel like December.
We’re seeing a few school districts operating on a two hour delay due fog. You can find the latest closings by clicking here.
Visibilities are down to a quarter of a mile north and east of Dayton.
We’re tracking an area of low pressure heading this way later today. We’re going to see temperatures above normal ahead of the storm.
Our jet stream or storm track will bring winds out of the southwest in the upper levels of the atmosphere today and the switch to the northwest once the low passes us. This means above normal temperatures at first then near normal for Wednesday through Friday.
As the storm system approaches we’re going to see a chance for showers. Much of the day will be dry but we’ll see a chance for showers later this evening.
Showers will continue for Tuesday as the low exits the Great Lakes.
Temperatures then drop to near normal conditions for the rest of the week.
It was a wet Friday and first start of Saturday. Many areas picked up one to two inches of rainfall.

We’re tracking a cold front that will move through the Miami Valley Monday evening. This will bring us a little more cloud cover and a chance for a few showers by the afternoon.
There may be a little precipitation lingering when the cold air arrives late Monday and early Tuesday morning. This cold air may change the rain showers over to a few flurries early Tuesday morning. Right now it doesn’t look like a big snow at all.
The rest of the work week looks quiet with near normal temperatures.
Wow it was windy today! These winds will continue to be howling tonight and tomorrow.
The winds did help transport warmer air northward. Our highs today climbed into the 50′s. Tomorrow we’ll be even warmer with highs approaching 60.
Winds will be the main story along with the warmer temperatures tomorrow. Wind speeds will be 10-25 mph with gusts near 30 again.
These winds will help to bring a little more moisture northward Sunday. There’s a chance for a little light drizzle or spotty shower at any time during the day tomorrow. However the best chance of rain will be after 5 p.m.
A cold front will move through the area Sunday. Once the front approaches the Miami Valley by late Sunday evening that’s when we’ll see the best chance of rain. The rain will be on the light side and won’t amount to very much in the rain gauge.
There’s a slight chance we may see a few rain showers very early Monday morning. Cold air will drop southward once the front moves through the area. There’s a slight chance we may see a few snowflakes mix in south of Dayton however the chance is very small.
We received a few sunrise pictures in our reportit file that I would love to share. Don’t forget you can always share your photos by sending picture to email@example.com

This means we’re going to see the sun rising earlier but setting right after you get home from work now.
Make sure you don’t look at the sun directly. There’s a few ways you can view the solar eclipse safely. If you have special glasses you can use those, watch it online or grab the cardboard from a roll of toilet paper.
Tape a piece of paper at one end of the roll and poke a small hole in the paper. Hold the open end up to the sun and you can see the projected image of the eclipse.

The fall colors are peaking around the Miami Valley and many of you have been sending us your photos through firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you so much for sharing!
Here are a few pictures I took while hiking at Hueston Woods State Park.
We had a soggy day around most of the Miami Valley. Rainfall amounts were around a quarter of an inch to as much as a half of an inch.
The biggest batch of rain moved out of the area around 4 p.m. and we saw some sunshine. We still had a few scattered showers around and many of you snapped some great rainbow pictures. There were even some double rainbows. Did you know that the colors are reversed on the second bow of a double rainbow?

We still have a few scattered showers around the area right now however skies will become partly cloudy overnight. Skies will clear out just in time for a lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the Earth’s shadow. In order to see the eclipse you’ll have to wake up early or stay up late (however you choose to look at it!) and look WEST. The eclipse will begin shortly after 4 a.m. and last until about 7:30am. Totality will begin around 6:30am. The moon may have a red or orange tint to it. This is why it’s nicknamed the ‘blood moon’.
If you want to check out the eclipse from your warm bed SLOOH observatory is setting up a live feed. Click here
If you’re up and want to send photos of the eclipse we would LOVE to share them on the air and in our weather blogs! Just send your photo to email@example.com
This morning many of us saw some ice pellets falling instead of rain showers. Here’s some video I shot earlier today. Graupel occurs where there is cold air in the upper levels of the atmosphere.
Temperatures today were well below our normal readings for this time of the year.
The chilly temperatures will continue tonight. Look for skies to become partly cloudy by daybreak. Temperatures will drop into the 30′s by early tomorrow morning. A frost advisory has been issued for most of the Miami Valley until 10 a.m. Sunday.
Surface temperatures are taken five feet above the ground. So even though air temperatures at reporting sites may say 36 degrees the air at the ground may be closer to 32. This is why if you have any tender plants you might want to cover them or bring them into your garage.
We’ll see some sunshine for Sunday but there’s also a slight chance we may see a few isolated showers too.
A better chance for showers arrives on Monday and Tuesday.
Temperatures will slowly moderate for the middle of the week to near normal.
If you wanted great fall weather we’ve really hit the jackpot. Clear nights and sunny afternoons will continue for the next few days.
We had a few clouds early this morning and that allowed for a fantastic sunrise!
We ended the day with a lot of sunshine and temperatures once again in the 80′s.
We’ll continue to see clear skies and temperatures dropping into the 50′s tonight. Quiet conditions continue for the next couple of days before we see a pattern change take place at the end of the week.
We’ll see a few clouds tomorrow but it will be another gorgeous fall day around the area with highs once again in the lower 80′s.
Tuesday we’ll see a few more clouds as a weak system drops from the north. It looks like most locations will be dry we’ll just see a few more clouds as the cold front passes through Ohio.
We’re starting off with cloudy skies around the Miami Valley this morning. Clouds will begin to break for the afternoon and we’ll see lots of sunshine. Temperatures are going to be well below normal today but eventually will rise to the middle and upper 70′s for the weekend.
