We’re starting out with temperatures in the upper 20′s and lower 30′s this morning. High pressure will keep us dry and sunny today. Even with the chilly start temperatures will climb later this afternoon.
Since it’s April 1st I thought we should take a look back at March. Remember March 1st? We had 4.5″ of snow and highs around freezing. I like how we ended March much better.
Winds will not be as breezy today as what they were yesterday. It’s going to be a great day. Winds will pick up tomorrow as a cold front moves through. Highs will be above normal through the end of the week.
We’ll see highs in the lower 70′s Thursday but look for clouds along with showers and thunderstorms.
We haven’t had any severe weather here in the Miami Valley this year. The National Weather Service in Wilmington hasn’t had any watches or warnings issued for the Dayton area making it 98 consecutive days of no severe weather.
However we are under an elevated risk of severe weather on Thursday. A cold front will move through and bring us a good chance of thunderstorms. Some of these storms may be on the stronger side with gusty winds, hail and very heavy rainfall.
A wave of low pressure will move along the cold front Friday meaning another round of rain will be possible. Rainfall amounts may approach 1-2″ by the end of the week.
Right now it looks like it will be dry but chilly for Easter weekend.
