A stalled boundary is still the focus for our cloud cover and scattered showers this weekend. We’ll continue to see the clouds this evening. There’s a slight chance for a few scattered showers. As of 6pm there are a few showers and thunderstorms in the southern half of the Miami Valley. Be sure to head to wdtn.com to get the latest scan of Live Doppler 2HD.
Despite the cloud cover this afternoon we did see our highs in the middle 70′s which is a few degrees above normal.
This evening we’ll see a slight chance for a few showers and storms to develop. But they are going to be very isolated in nature.
None of the storms that develop will be severe – however out west it’s a different story. There are tornado watches in effect as a large storm system produces severe weather there.
Back here in the Miami Valley we’ll see more clouds heading into Sunday. A little bit of sun may spark a few showers and storms in the afternoon but again they will be isolated in nature.
One thing you’ll notice – and probably noticed today – is an increase in humidity. Dew point values are in the lower 60′s so it feels slightly sticky. However Sunday dew point values will rise into the middle and upper 60′s which means it’s going to feel a bit more uncomfortable.
Monday looks like it will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the middle to upper 80′s. Temperatures stay in the lower 80′s for the first half of the work week but right now it looks like the Memorial Day weekend may be dry!
Have a great weekend!

I have decided today is my “pick day of the week.” It’s going to feel more like summer rather than spring. We’ll see gusty winds at times near 30 mph which will allow our temperatures to soar into the middle 80′s.
While temperatures will be well above normal it doesn’t look like we’re going to break a record.
We’ll see lots of sunshine for the first half of the day. By the afternoon clouds begin to build and there’s a chance for a few showers or thundershowers. A cold front will sink southward and bring the chance for rain mainly after 6pm.
The cold front stalls right over the Miami Valley and this means our rain chances will continue for Thursday.
The rain chances continue into the weekend and much of next week.
There will be some dry times but most of the days will have scattered showers and storms. Be prepared to keep the umbrella nearby
May 11th, 2013 at 5:13 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
The clouds hung around a little longer than anticipated and that had an impact on today’s highs. We only hit 55 degrees thanks to all of the cloud cover. Our normal high for this time of year is near 70. The below normal temperatures will continue for the next two days. But we will see more sunshine for Sunday and Monday.
Tonight a weak cold front will pass through the area. This will bring a very thin line of light showers.
The showers will move east after 10pm and skies will become partly cloudy overnight. Temperatures will drop into the upper 30′s and lower 40′s again by early Sunday morning.
We’ll see some sunshine for Sunday afternoon but highs will still stay in the middle 50′s.
The chilly air mass stick around as high pressure gets closer to the Miami Valley Sunday night. Temperatures will drop into the middle 30′s by early Monday morning. This means if you have planted your garden you may need to cover up your plants or bring them indoors.
The good news is warmer temperatures will head this way for the new work week. Look for lots of sunshine and temperatures into the upper 70′s and near 80 on Wednesday!
Happy Mother’s Day!

There is a pesky low pressure area in the upper levels of the atmosphere and it is a slow mover. This is the same system that brought chilly temperatures to Chicago and snow to Wisconsin. Now it’s in southern Missouri and will slowly move eastward.
This storm system gave us a bit more clouds today and temperatures a few degrees cooler than yesterday. But still we’re near normal.
Tonight the rain will stay to the west of the Miami Valley. But it will slowly creep northward late in the day tomorrow.
Temperatures will start out once again in the lower 50′s.
By Sunday afternoon we’ll see a bit more clouds across the area. Temperatures will stay in the upper 60′s close to 70. There’s a slight chance for a few showers to develop but mainly south of Dayton and later in the afternoon/evening. This will be from the area of low pressure that will slowly pivot bands of rain northward.
As the low pressure area finally moves eastward there’s still a slight chance for a few showers Monday.
Temperatures continue to rise for most of the work week with highs in the lower 70′s.
April 27th, 2013 at 6:12 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
Hopefully you got out and enjoyed the first part of the weekend. Clouds have already thickened across the area and rain chances will increase later tonight. We did see highs today slightly above normal.
This is all thanks to an area of low pressure heading near the Miami Valley later this weekend. Clouds have increased and will stick around for the rest of the weekend.
Look for showers to develop later tonight and continue through the overnight hours.
By Sunday morning the showers will be scattered in nature. It won’t be a complete washout but you may run into a few showers from time to time.
By Sunday night and Monday morning the storm system heads east of us and eventually our rain chances decrease. There’s a slight chance for a few isolated showers early Monday but only around a 30% chance.
The rest of the workweek looks mainly dry with above normal temperatures. Highs in the middle 70′s are possible for Tuesday and Wednesday.
April 18th, 2013 at 6:58 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
After a warm and windy day we’re tracking storms out to the west of the Miami Valley. Right now as of 7pm there are no watches or warnings in effect for the area and no warnings with the line in central Indiana.
The latest discussion from the Storm Prediction Center says that the watch will likely be dropped early to the west and another one will not be issued farther west.
Here’s the latest look from our future trac forecast model that we run in house here at WDTN. Like we’ve been saying yesterday and this morning the line will likely reach the Indiana/Ohio state line by 10 or 11pm
The main threat with these thunderstorms will be gusty winds at times and moderate to heavy rain. We may see wind gusts with some of these thunderstorms near 40-50 mph. There may also be some localized minor flooding due to seeing so much rain all at once. The moderate to heavy rain will continue through the Friday morning rush hour but will quickly move east of the area by lunchtime.
Temperatures will fall throughout the day. We’ll see our highs early on Friday into the 50′s the fall into the 40′s for the afternoon with breezy westerly winds.
High pressure takes over for the weekend. This means lots of sunshine but cooler temperatures.
Lows will be in the 30′s Saturday and Sunday morning and highs will stay in the 50′s for the afternoon.
April 17th, 2013 at 8:06 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
We’ve seen an active weather pattern the last few days and it will finally come to an end as a strong cold front moves through tomorrow night.
Today we saw the warm front lift northward. Most of the northern half of the Miami Valley stayed in the 60′s for the afternoon while the southern and central portions jumped into the lower 70′s. You can see where the warm front set up – north of it highs were only in the 50′s while south of it temperatures soared into the middle 70′s and even 80′s.
As of Wednesday evening there are some severe storms firing in northern Illinois and Indiana. Those are going to lift north of the Miami Valley. So tonight we’re going to be dry but tomorrow night is a different story.
First out ahead of the cold front tomorrow we’ll see VERY windy conditions. Sustained winds will be near 10-20 mph but wind gusts will reach 30-35 mph. Here’s a look at one of our computer models is suggesting what the sustained wind speeds will be.
These strong winds will bring warm air northward. Temperatures tomorrow will soar into the upper 70′s close to 80 degrees.
With all of the warm air and energy in the upper levels of the atmosphere thunderstorms are going to flare up to our west. By the early evening strong thunderstorms will form in northern Illinois and Indiana again. This time (unlike tonight) they will form a large line and head eastward.
Some of the storms within this line will be on the stronger side. The Storm Prediction Center has the Miami Valley in an elevated risk of severe weather. Keep in mind – *most* of the day on Thursday will be dry. This line of storms will move through after 11pm Thursday.
The one thing we have to watch is timing. The line of storms will be moving through after the sun has set and we’ll lose the daytime heating. On the other hand there is a lot of energy in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Basically we have to watch and see if the storms hang onto their strength as they move eastward or if they will weaken before they get here.
It’s a good idea to make sure your NOAA Weather Radio is plugged in and ready to go. Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik and I will be watching this closely. She’ll have the latest computer model trends tomorrow morning on 2News Today.
April 14th, 2013 at 5:45 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
Did you enjoy today’s weather? Temperatures are on the rise not only for the weekend but for much of next week as well. We will see more cloud cover and several chances for rain next week but there will be some sunny moments.
Around 5pm today we saw temperatures soar into the middle 60′s which is above normal and about 15 degrees warmer than what we had yesterday.
A warm front has lifted northward and with it more high level clouds too. We’ll see those clouds stick around tonight. Temperatures won’t fall too much either. Lows by tomorrow morning will be in the 50′s. A big difference from the 30′s we saw this morning .
Temperatures continue to rise for the next couple of days. We’ll see highs in the lower 70′s for much of next week. However we’ll be in an active weather pattern. This means several chances for rain and lots of clouds. One of two cold fronts this week moves through late Monday night and early Tuesday. Most of Monday will be dry, breezy and warm.
The cold front gets closer to the Miami Valley late Monday night and this means our rain chances will increase. Rain will be likely by Tuesday morning. The air behind this cold front isn’t all that cold so we’ll continue to see temperatures in the 70′s for the rest of the week.
A stronger cold front moves through the area Thursday night. Behind this front there is a big difference in the temperatures. Highs will drop back into the 50′s for the end of the week and next weekend.
April 13th, 2013 at 6:10 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
There’s a bit of a buzz about our chances for seeing the Northern Lights tonight. It is a little unusual for auroras to be seen this far south in Ohio however space scientists suggest the solar energy that will hit the Earth tonight is going to be rather strong.
The chance for us to see auroras stems back to Thursday when a coronal mass ejection (CME) or solar flare left the sun. Click here to see a video of the CME. Now it takes a couple of days for this solar energy to travel through space and get close to the Earth. When the electrically charged particles head into the Earth’s atmosphere they collide with other gas particles and we see the brilliant colors dancing across the sky.
Now I want to point out we are on the southern fringe of the line. There’s a chance we may not see them this far south. If you want to take a look tonight find a dark spot, away from any city lights, look up and be patient. From the research I did it appears that the energy should reach the Earth’s atmosphere sometime after 9 pm eastern. I did find a service through NOAA that provides email alerts. Click here to see the site. If you happen to catch the northern lights please remember to send a photo using our report!t feature at wdtn.com
Now the question becomes will the clouds clear out across the Miami Valley…yes I think they will just in time. Clouds are beginning to break up right now and we’ll continue to see the clear throughout much of the overnight. There will be an increase in clouds by Sunday morning. This batch will be due to a warm front heading this way.
This warm front will bring us VERY warm temperatures again for Sunday afternoon and much of next week as well. Look for breezy winds during the afternoon and some sunshine. Those winds will help boost our temperatures into the upper 60′s which is about 10 degrees above normal.
Most of Sunday will be dry however there’s a slight chance for a few isolated showers Monday. But the warm weather continues for most of the week.
Temperatures soar ahead of the cold front but once the cold front gets closer our rain chances also increase.
Finally the front gets a little closer to use on Tuesday. This means a much better chance for rain Tuesday.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
April 5th, 2013 at 6:14 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
So it’s Friday and like many people I am pumped for the weekend! I hope the weather forecast is making you excited too. I’ve been talking about a warm up all week for the weekend and here it is. First today – high pressure builds across the area bringing lots of sunshine to the area. We’ll see temperatures into the low to middle 50′s which is a few degrees below normal for this time of year.
Tonight will be chilly once again with lows near the freezing mark. But this will likely be the last chilly night at least for the next 7 days.
A warm front will lift northward on Saturday. This means warmer temperatures will head into the Miami Valley for the afternoon. Skies will be partly cloudy but the one thing you’ll notice will be the winds. They’ll be sustained at 10-15 miles per hour but may gust to near 20.
The cold front gets closer on Sunday and that means a chance for showers. The rain threat could come as early as Sunday morning.
We’re going to see more rain chances for next week as a well as warmer temperatures. And by warmer I mean 70′s!
Temperatures climb into the 70′s for Tuesday and Wednesday but we’ll see showers and thunderstorms possible with all of the warmer air.
Have a wonderful weekend!
April 4th, 2013 at 6:08 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
This morning we’re seeing a thick cloud deck overhead. Temperatures aren’t as cold as they were the last couple of mornings but some spots are in the upper 20′s. The clouds will be with us for the next several hours and eventually this afternoon we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds.
If you’re heading to Great American Ball Park for the Reds game you’ll see a bit more cloud cover. Temperatures by first pitch will be in the upper 40′s but quickly rise into the 50′s for the afternoon.
Clouds begin to clear later tonight. Temperatures will still be on the chilly side but will not be as cold as the last couple of mornings. Eventually temperatures rise for the weekend and next week. Looks like spring has finally sprung
The warmer temperatures will last into the end of the weekend and for early next week as well. We will see more unsettled weather though with several rain chances Sunday through Wednesday. Until then enjoy the dry conditions!
On Friday another area of high pressure noses southward. This means sunny skies once again and highs in the middle 50′s. Low pressure gets closer for the weekend and out ahead of it winds really pick up out of the south and southwest. This means we’ll see a breezy day Saturday and highs rise into the 60′s.
Temperatures rise for early next week but there are several chances for rain and even a few thunderstorms. Stay tuned. You can always get the latest forecast by heading to wdtn.com on your mobile device as well.
Enjoy the spring like weather!
April 3rd, 2013 at 5:24 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
If you think it’s a little unusual to see temperatures in the 20′s this early in April you would be correct. Lower 2o’s for this time of year get pretty close to records. In fact on Tuesday morning Dayton tied a record low! We’re going to come pretty close this morning as well.
Wednesday morning’s low is 20 so we’re going to be a few degrees away from hitting that one. However the normal low for this time of year is 37 and we’re well below that mark.
Our daytime highs have been below normal as well. We hit 44 yesterday but each day we’ll be adding a few degrees. We’ll stair step to the middle 60′s for the weekend!
Along with the milder weather also comes the chance for some unsettled weather. Rain chances are going to increase for late Sunday and through the early part of next week. Until then high pressure keeps us dry and sunny for today. A storm system skims the southern half of Ohio which means we may see a few more clouds Thursday afternoon.
April really is one of those transition months. We see our average temperatures increase dramatically and the amount of daylight increases too! Here’s a look at the average high temperature from the beginning of the month to the end and how much daylight we’ll gain for month.
Spring has sprung Enjoy your week!
April 2nd, 2013 at 5:26 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
I know the calendar says it’s spring but our temperatures didn’t get the memo
We’re starting out with temperatures in the 20′s this morning and highs today will stay in the 40′s for the afternoon. This chilly air mass sticks around for today and Wednesday.
Temperatures slowly begin to rise to near normal temperatures for the end of the week. By the weekend I have 60′s in the forecast!
Even though we will be chilly at least we’ll see some sunshine. High pressure is heading this way and will dominate our weather pattern for the next several days.
Expect another cold night/Wednesday morning with lows in the 20′s again. Temperatures begin to moderate a little bit for the morning hours on Thursday with lows near 30.
Since we’re beginning a new month I thought we should take a look back at March. March was the snowy and cold.
As for April it looks like temperatures will be near normal for the Miami Valley but slightly above normal to the east of us.
Have a wonderful day!
April 1st, 2013 at 5:46 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
After a beautiful and warmer weekend temperatures drop for the first couple of days this week. If you’re heading to the Red’s opening day festivities make sure you’re dressing in layers because temperatures will stay in the lower 40′s and winds will be brisk out of the northwest.
There’s a slight chance we may see a few light flurries or sprinkles but they will be widely scattered and on the light side.
The main weather story for the next several days will be the chilly temperatures. Highs will be well below normal for the first half of the work week but they’ll rise by the end of the week and for the weekend.
High pressure builds across the Miami Valley for the next few days. While we’ll see some cloud cover throughout the day today look for mostly sunny skies for Tuesday & Wednesday. The clear skies at night mean temperatures will fall into the lower 20′s by daybreak.
By Tuesday afternoon temperatures still stay into the lower to middle 40′s even with lots of sunshine. This chilly air mass sticks around until the middle of the week.
Get ready for the warm up for the end of the week!!
Have a wonderful Monday!
March 30th, 2013 at 7:29 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
We had a wonderful day today! Lots of sunshine and temperatures finally made it into the middle 50′s.
John sent us this photo of the deer enjoying the sunshine at Englewood Metropark. Kathy from Brookville shows us blooming flowers. Don’t forget you can always send us photos by using the report!t feature at wdtn.com
Of course the nice weather isn’t going to last for the rest of the weekend. Clouds have already begun to increase across the Miami Valley and there is already some rain out to the west of us. Showers will creep into the area by daybreak Sunday and stick around with us for the first half of the day.
If you’re doing any Easter egg hunts you may want to postpone them until later in the day. The showers that move through early in the day will be rather scattered and won’t put down too much rain and will be east of Dayton by 2 or 3 pm.
We may see some breaks in the clouds late Sunday night. By Monday the cold air spills across the region and temperatures drop into the lower 40′s for much of Monday and Tuesday.
Opening day for the Reds is going to be chilly! Make sure you bring the layers and bundle up. There may be a few patches of drizzle or a few flurries for Monday.
Have a wonderful weekend!
March 24th, 2013 at 8:25 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
Looking at the latest scan of Live Doppler 2HD at 8 pm there is a heavy batch of sleet/snow mix moving through Montgomery county. I just walked outside here in Moraine and saw the big snowflakes and heard the sleet hitting the building. So there is still a bit of a mix from I-70 southward.
However I can already see the colder air beginning to move into the area. The Storm Prediction Center just put out a special discussion for us here in the Miami Valley. I knew this would be coming out and the National Weather Service is thinking the same thing I am. The heaviest snow will begin in the next hour or two and it will continue through about 1 am. At times we may see snowfall rates at 1-2 inches per hour. Along with this we may “hear” some rumbles of thunder because there is so much energy and lift with this storm system. If we do hear this “thundersnow” snowfall rates will really increase during this time.
So here’s what I am thinking for the rest of the night. We are still under a Winter Storm Warning through Monday 2pm.
The heaviest snow will fall from now through 1 am with the possibility of thundersnow as well. Between about 1 am-8 am we will still see moderate to heavy snow at times so the Monday morning rush hour will be a difficult one. From Monday morning through Monday afternoon the bulk of the heavier snow will come to an end but there will still be the chance for a few snow showers and flurries. Winds will begin to pick up as well so there may be some blowing and drifting however this will be a heavy wet snow.
Here’s what it will look like on Monday morning at 7. We’ll still see some accumulating snow but it will begin to taper off by mid morning.
Total snowfall accumulations will be 8-10 inches with some areas picking up 6-8 inches south and east of Dayton.
It isn’t completely unheard of to have a significant snowfall in March. However this storm may go in the record books. First I wanted to show some of the daily snowfall records in the month of March. Now this storm is a bit different and I’m not sure it will make it into the record books for daily snowfall because some of the snow will fall before midnight and some will fall after midnight. It’s just easier to keep records by doing it this way At any rate take a look at some of the daily snowfall March records.
While we may not break any daily records we may come close to making into the top five monthly snowfall totals for the entire month of March. Notice how right now we sit at 7.4″ for March and if we get at least six inches at the airport we’ll break the top five.
Please take it easy with this latest winter wallop! I know many of you want spring but apparently mother nature wants to hang onto winter for one last storm!
March 24th, 2013 at 3:43 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
I just wanted to write a quick update on the weather situation.
Right now there is a Winter Storm Warning for the entire Miami Valley through 2 p.m. Monday.
We’ve had about an inch to 1.5″ already fall in portions of the area. You’ve been sending us your photos and videos via report!t and we appreciate it! Please keep them coming. Here are just a few that we have received.

Like I mentioned yesterday we are going to get a brief lull in the precipitation before the second round moves through later tonight. There is a chance some of the precipitation may fall as a rain snow mix to start between about 5-7 p.m. along the I-70 corridor southward. Once the colder air gets here snowfall rates will increase dramatically. I expect heavy snow between the hours of 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. with moderate snow until the Monday morning commute.
Here’s what I am thinking…
Now – 5 pm: Light snow east of Dayton, cloudy rest of area
5pm-7pm: Rain/snow mix I-70 South; snow north of Daytoon
7pm-3am: Heavy snowfall occurs – biggest burst will be between 10pm-1am could see snowfall rates at an inch an hour
4am-7am: Moderate snowfall – accumulation on the roads
Rest of Monday: Snowfall tapers to flurries with minimal accumulation for the rest of the day
Travel will become difficult later tonight and for Monday morning. Total accumulations still look to be close to 8-10 inches for Dayton west and 6-8″ inches for the rest of the area. More importantly this will be a wet, heavy snowfall.
Please don’t let your guard down just because we’ve see some light snow and it has stopped or if you see rain in a few hours. Heavy snow is on the way later tonight. Travel safe!!
March 23rd, 2013 at 6:56 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
Just because the calendar says it’s spring doesn’t mean we can’t see one last major snow storm before we say goodbye to winter.
The storm is already taking shape in the central plains producing some heavy snow in Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado. The snow band will begin to spread east and cut a path through central Illinois, Indiana and eventually here in the Miami Valley.
The National Weather Service has upgraded our Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Storm Warning. This goes into effect Sunday at 8 a.m. and continues until Monday at 2 p.m.
Saturday night will be quiet with clouds beginning to increase ahead of the storm. By early Sunday morning we’ll see overcast skies and the snow will begin after 10 a.m. It will at first be on the light side – nothing too heavy. We may even mix in with a little rain or sleet south of Dayton to start. If you have early morning church services those should be ok but later in the evening is when things will begin to deteriorate.
This snow will be on the light side until after 6 p.m. The heaviest burst of snow will begin and continue through the early morning hours Monday. This will be a wet, heavy snow and will quickly accumulate on the road ways. Travel will become more difficult late Sunday and for the Monday morning commute.
Finally by Monday afternoon the snow begins to taper and we’ll see the bulk of the accumulating snow come to an end. There will still be the chance of a few flurries Monday afternoon and Tuesday as well.
Total snowfall accumulations will range between 8-10″ in most spots with some areas picking up 6-8″. Now there may be a few isolated areas picking up 11 inches but those are a little difficult to narrow down. Just realize this will be a heavy wet snow – similar to the storm we saw right after Christmas in 2012.
This latest winter wallop will probably make it into the top ten March snowfalls here in Dayton. I found a list of the top ten – take a look. Do you remember any of them?
Be safe and as always we will keep you updated here at Storm Team 2. We already have a plan in place. Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik will be here Sunday morning during the Today Show to offer live weather updates during the local news cutin’s. Brian Davis is on standby Sunday night to help me with coverage in the studio. We’ll have teams out live in the elements letting you know what conditions look like.
Take care and be safe! Enjoy this last taste of winter!

Wow what a great day! I hope you had the chance to get out and enjoy it. We ended up seeing a little more sunshine than I thought we would see and therefore our temperatures rose into the middle 60′s! Many of you sent us photos via our report!t section at wdtn.com Thanks! Here are just a few we received today.

Today’s highs soared into the lower 60′s for most of the Miami Valley. Here’s a look at the high temperatures as of 5pm.
Now in order to get these warm temperatures we did have a breezy day. Winds will continue to be strong out of the south throughout the night and through the day Monday. Winds could reach up to 20 m.p.h.
Of course we’re not going to stay in the middle 60′s with sunshine for the rest of the week. The reason we saw these warm temperatures is because there is a cold front just to the west of us. The front will head into the area Monday and out ahead of it will be a batch of rain. We’ll see the clouds quickly increase tonight and after midnight there’s a chance for some rain to develop beginning in the west. The rain will overspread the area by the Monday morning rush hour.
The rain will taper off a bit throughout the day and become more scattered by the evening rush hour.
The rain may be heavy at times and could accumulate up to an inch in some spots. With the wet ground and recent snow melt those areas that are prone to minor flooding may see some of the creeks and rivers begin to swell.
Once the cold air filters across the area late Monday night there is a slight chance some of our northern counties may see some wet snowflakes. Little to no accumulation is expected.
By Tuesday the clouds stick around and temperatures fall back into the lower 40′s. There’s also a slight chance for a few flurries or drizzle for the late afternoon and evening.
We do see our temperatures fall into the upper 30′s and 40 degree range for the middle of the week. However computer models suggest another warm surge will make it here just in time for next weekend.
March 9th, 2013 at 6:34 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
It was so great to see the sunshine this morning and the warmer temperatures after the late winter storm we had last week. I captured some neat pictures from our Miami Valley Centre Mall in Piqua. Notice the two difference from the images – the first one has a little more sun and more snow while the second one has more clouds and some of the snow is gone.
Today’s official almanac in Dayton will have to be updated a little because after the report came out we hit 52° however I think you get the idea that we were above normal.
We’re in store for another warm day Sunday. If we get enough sunshine we may see temperatures climb into the upper 50′s and possibly 60! It will be a breezy day with winds gusting at times out of the south between 10-20 mph.
Clouds increase tonight and we’ll see some of those clouds to start the day on Sunday.
There’s a slight chance we may see a few showers popping across the area for the morning or afternoon.
The best chance for rain is going to come on Monday when the cold front moves through. Expect a wet morning commute with conditions getting a little better for the afternoon.
Don’t forget to SPRING FORWARD tonight/Sunday morning. Set your clocks forward one hour. Here’s a look at our new sunrise/sunset times for Sunday.
I want to give a special thank you to Dayton Skywarn for letting Brian, Jamie and I speak at the storm spotter seminar today. National Weather Service meteorologists and us here at WDTN rely on those reports. We need that ground truth proof. We had some great discussions!
Have a wonderful weekend!
