Clouds will increase tonight ahead of rain by sunrise


Temperatures climbed to about 60 today in a sunny end to the weekend, but a wet forecast is coming this week.

Clouds increase tonight as temperatures fall to the upper 40s, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.

Rain arrives by sunrise, especially to the south.

Monday will be cloudy with rain and a few afternoon thunderstorms. Winds will increase as an area of low pressure tracks right over the Miami Valley.

"Overall, a threat for severe weather is not expected," Vrydaghs said, "but storms still could still produce some heavy downpours and strong winds."

Up to an inch of rain is possible, with a few localized areas seeing a bit more. Temperatures will reach into the upper 50s, with lows in the 40s.

Skies will be partly sunny Tuesday, with temperatures in the mid 50s.

"A few late day showers may develop as an upper level disturbance slides through," Vrydaghs said.

Wednesday will be pleasant and dry, with highs in the mid 50s.Mostly sunny skies on Thursday give way to more clouds late. It will be breezy and warm with highs in the upper 60s, but a cold front will bring a chance for showers Thursday night into the first half of Friday. Vrydaghs said she "can't rule out a rumble of thunder as this line pushes through."

After the front passes, temperatures will warm into the mid 60s Friday afternoon, she said.
