Dry but breezy for the end of the weekend

Rain for the end of the weekend

April 18th, 2015 at 6:09 pm by under Weather

Hopefully you got out today and enjoyed the great weather!  I went hiking and the trails were packed this morning.  We managed to make it up to 79 degrees just shy of 80.

A storm system is going to head this way and bring us a good chance of showers and even a few thunderstorms for much of the day Sunday.  First we’ll see the clouds increase tonight.

Dry weekend but rain tomorrow

April 12th, 2015 at 5:52 pm by under Weather

We had a great weekend with lots of sunshine and dry conditions!  Highs hit the 70′s both Saturday and Sunday and while we’ll continue to stay above normal for next week we’ll also see several chances for showers and a few storms.

First today…after a sunny day we’re beginning to see a few clouds move into the area.

almanac Troy cam

 

Clouds will continue to stick around this evening.  There’s a very slim chance of an isolated shower this evening but most of us will be dry.

A cold front will be moving through the area tomorrow.  This will bring us gusty winds, cloud cover and a chance for showers and storms.

Most of the day will be partly cloudy, warm and breezy.  There’s a slight chance we may see a few showers ahead of the cold front but the best chance for rain will be after 5p.m. as the cold front passes through the Miami Valley.

After a stormy week we finally see quiet and dry weather for the weekend.  It was a touch chilly this morning with lows in the 30′s but with lots of sunshine we saw temperatures climb to near normal.

Confirmed tornado Thur night; Sunny/warm for Easter

April 4th, 2015 at 6:38 pm by under Weather

Thursday night we had our first warning of 2015.  The National Weather Service in Wilmington issued a tornado warning for western Clark county just before 10 p.m. Here’s a look at the velocity from the FAA radar north of the airport.  The greens and reds close together mean circulation and a possible tornado.

tor warning

 

While the circulation was small and brief it DID produce a tornado.  The NWS in Wilmington confirmed that a small EF0 tornado touched down near New Carlisle.  Here’s a link to the survey

It’s important to note that years ago we probably wouldn’t have been able to issue a tornado warning and advise people of a possible tornado. Technology has advanced and now we have access to several FAA radars.  We’re able to see tighter circulations that we couldn’t see 25 years ago.  This allows meteorologists to issue warnings and alert people to severe weather.  Here’s a report from last night’s newscast about the better technology.

One quick note:  I want to explain that NO television meteorologists actually issue warnings.  The National Weather Service meteorologists are the ONLY ones who can issue warnings.  It’s our station policy to cut in during tornado warnings and stay on until the warning has expired.  The NWS in Wilmington is VERY good about lifting the warning if the circulation has weakened.  So we’re not staying on because want to ruin your program – we’re on to deliver safety information.  Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis mentioned this in his facebook post the other day it’s a part of our FCC license.  Every TV station in town has the same policy.  Seeing from the confirmation above there WAS cause for staying on – a tornado DID touch down.

Today we started out with temperatures around freezing.  It was a little cooler than normal but we did have lots of sunshine!

almanac Troy cam

Look for dry conditions tonight with temperatures falling into the 30′s once again. High pressure keeps us dry and sunny for Sunday.

Lows tonight sat image

Highs Sunday will climb into the 60′s with lots of sunshine and breezy winds out of the southwest.

Sun 7aSun 6p

Clouds increase on Monday and there’s a chance for on and off showers throughout the day.  Keep the umbrella handy just in case.

Mon 7a Mon 7p

 

If you’re heading down to GABP don’t forget the rain gear.  Showers will be possible for the parade and the game.

REDS FORECAST

 

Rain chances will continue for much of next week.  Our storm track or jet stream will shift to the south and southwest meaning waves of low pressure will move through the Miami Valley.

More rain today

April 3rd, 2015 at 9:25 am by under Weather

We saw our first severe weather warning of the season last night.  A thunderstorm with very strong rotation popped up quickly.  The tornado warning was in effect for about 10 or 15 minutes.  Here’s an image from the Dayton FAA Terminal Doppler Radar. The reds and greens close together indicate very strong rotation. This quick spin-up was very similar to the tornado that occurred in Vandalia a couple years ago.  These are very hard to predict.

Thunderstorms today

April 2nd, 2015 at 8:08 am by under Weather

Right now we’re seeing a few scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some of these storms may produce periods of brief heavy rain.  You can track the storms on Live Doppler 2HD by clicking here.

Here’s how the day breaks down.

winter storm timeline

We’re going to see a windy and warm day as a storm system approaches the Miami Valley.  Winds will be out of the south and southwest at 15-25 m.p.h.  This will push high temperatures to the lower 70′s.

We’ll see some showers this morning, a lull this afternoon then another round when the cold front moves through later tonight.   Thu 8aThu 5p

Some of the storms with the cold front may produce some gusty winds, hail and heavy rain at times. Most of the Miami Valley is under an elevated risk of severe weather.

spc outlook Severe weather threat

 

Thu 8p

Showers and thunderstorms will be likely tonight and some of these thunderstorms may contain some heavy rain.

More rain is expected tomorrow too as the front stalls out and a wave of low pressure rides along the cold front.

Fri 10aFri 7p

It looks like we may see anywhere between 1 and 2 inches of rain during the next two days. So there may be some streams that swell along with high water on some roadways.

The good news is the rain will move out just in time for the weekend.

Next week: temperatures on the rise

March 8th, 2015 at 5:31 pm by under Weather

It looks like spring has sprung!  Before I came into work I heard kids in my neighborhood outside playing.  There’s still a pretty big snow mound near my place but soon those will be disappearing.

While we did have some cloud cover today the thickest clouds and even a few spotty showers were just north of the Miami Valley.

Because we saw a lot more sunshine and the thicker clouds stayed to our north much of the Dayton area was in the middle and upper 40′s.  The cloud cover farther north did keep temperatures near 40 like Lima and Fort Wayne.

Spring like weather to help spring forward

March 7th, 2015 at 5:58 pm by under Weather

If you haven’t guessed by the title we “spring forward” or shift to Daylight Saving Time early Sunday morning.  It’s really my least favorite night of the year because magically an hour of my sleep disappears but I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels this pain.  The one thing I do like about this day is I get to use the bouncing clock graphic during the weather cast.  (I know nerd alert – I just got excited about a weather graphic)

The great news is the sun will be setting an hour later this week which may be beneficial once you hear about the temperatures.

spring forward

 

Ok so we’re springing forward and we get to experience spring like weather right?  YES!  It all began today where we saw highs in the middle 40′s.  Now we’ve already been at 50 earlier this month – however it was raining all day.  So this was the first sunny 40 plus degree day.

almanac Beavercreek cam

 

It was also a great day to take some photos by drone!  This picture is sent to us by Paul Moody.
Don’t forget you can send your weather photo by using reportit@wdtn.com

Paul Moody Dayton Skyline

Tonight we may see a few clouds drift through our sky with lows falling into the 20′s.

Tomorrow a weak disturbance will pass just shy of our area bringing a little more cloud cover throughout your Sunday.  We should remain dry however there is a VERY slim chance we may see a sprinkle.  I think we’ll just see an increase in cloud cover.

Sun 8amSun 7p

Highs on Sunday will stay in the lower 40′s with a little more cloud cover at times.

By Monday an area of high pressure heads this way.  We’ll see more sunshine and temperatures will increase.

Mon 8a Mon 8p

Highs will continue to rise next week into the 50′s!  I do want to point out to be careful of spring fever.  We can still see significant snow in the middle and even end of March.  Remember Palm Sunday 2013?  We had several inches of snow fall that day.  I’ll do my best to keep it spring like.

Have a great weekend!

Rain then more snow

March 3rd, 2015 at 6:15 pm by under Weather

More snow is expected.  The heaviest amounts will stay farther south but most of the Miami Valley will at least see some snowfall.

First let’s get through the rain – there’s rain on the radar and we’ll continue to see it through the night.  We’ve already picked up about a quarter of an inch in Dayton and close to an inch in Cincinnati. (As of 5 p.m.)

 

Rainfall as of 5p

With all of the snow melt and rain we’re seeing reduced visibility at times. Be sure to use caution tonight and tomorrow morning…it will be a little foggy.

There’s also a FLOOD WATCH in effect for Warren and Clinton county.  The snow melt and moderate rain may cause some flooding issues.

Flood watch

 

The rain will continue tonight and into early Wednesday morning.

Tue 11pWed 8am

By Wednesday morning we’ll see the chance for a wintry mix as colder air moves into the area.  The colder air will eventually switch the mix over to all snow during the day.  There’s still a chance for some snow early Thursday morning.

Wed 6pThu 6a

A WINTER STORM WARNING goes into effect Wednesday at noon and continues until Thursday 1 p.m. for Warren and Clinton counties.  There’s a WINTER STORM WATCH for Butler and Greene counties.

It looks like the heaviest snowfall will occur farther south.  However most of the area will still see the chance for some accumulating snow.

SNOWFALL FORECAST ADI

There’s going to be a tight gradient of snow – meaning there will be a big difference in amounts in a short distance.

We’ll continue to track this system as it moves through.  Be sure to check in with Jamie Jarosik in the morning for the latest conditions.

Snow totals and looking ahead to our next system

March 1st, 2015 at 6:30 pm by under Weather

The snow is exiting the Miami Valley now and we’re beginning to see temperatures fall.  There may be a little patchy fog this evening along with some icy patches on the roadways.  Use caution if you’re going to be out and about tonight.

Before I talk about the snow I want to go back and talk about February really quick.  2015 made the top 5 coldest February’s on record!  Brrrr

Cold February

Here’s a look at the snowfall we received today.  Most areas picked up 3-5″ while there were a few spots that got 6 or 7″

This was a heavy packing snow so many people made snowmen.  We got some great pictures and here are just a few.

Snow to start March

February 28th, 2015 at 7:48 pm by under Weather

We’re tracking another storm that will bring accumulating snow to most of the Miami Valley.  Snow will begin to overspread the area through the overnight hours.

There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for all of the Miami Valley until Sunday at 10 p.m.  Butler, Warren and Clinton counties are under the advisory until 3 p.m. Sunday.

winter storm warning

 

The snow is west of Dayton right now and will continue to move eastward through the overnight hours.  Temperatures will stay fairly steady tonight then gradually rise through the overnight hours.  This means the snow will start off being light and fluffy but then change to a heavy, wet, packing snow tomorrow morning.

Sun 12amSun 8am

As early as 8 a.m. we’ll see warmer air move northward.  This will bring a rain/snow mix as far north as the I-70 corridor.  The northern Miami Valley will stay all snow while the southern half will see some snow at first, then rain, then snow before the system pulls east of Ohio.

Sun 11amSun 1pm

During the early afternoon there may be a break in the precipitation but another surge of colder air will filter southward and change the rain back over to snow.

Sun 4p

 

Here’s a look at the snowfall forecast.  Most of the area will pick up 3-5″ of snow.  Within the 3-5″ band there may be a few areas that pick up 6″ of snowfall. Southern sections of Preble, Montgomery and Greene counties will see some rain so lower amounts are here.

SNOWFALL FORECAST ADI

 

Monday looks better with high pressure over the area.  We’ll see lots of sunshine!

Mon 8aMon 5p

On Tuesday another system heads this way.  However this one won’t give us snow but rain…and it looks like it may be heavy.  Right now the forecast calls for freezing rain to start Tuesday morning then changes to rain for much of the day.  Did I mention temperatures will be close to 50?  We’re going to have to keep our eyes on the potential for flooding.  With all of the snow we’ve seen plus all the rain rivers may swell and storm drains will be working over time.

Stay tuned!
