Front to deliver showers, thunderstorms


A coming cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms to the region, and some of that activity may work into the northern Miami Valley on Tuesday so temperatures for some in that part of the region may not get out of the 50s.

Those showers will then slide to the southeast, overspreading the region through the first half of the day.

Wednesday looks to be not as wet as Tuesday, so just a few showers and thunderstorms are expected, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Monday night. Since the front will head back north, the region should be a bit warmer with temperatures for most hitting 70, but perhaps only in the 60s far north.

With the front lifting back north later Wednesday and then returning as the final cold front around sunrise Friday, the region will be on the warm side of the front Thursday and that will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the upper 70s.

If enough sun breaks through, temps in the region could hit 80 in spots. Thunderstorms should hold off just northwest of the area until late in the day or evening on Thursday, but the far northwest could get some rain during the day.

For Friday, the cold front looks to move through in the morning. That will increase the chances for some morning thunderstorms, with rain lingering into the afternoon. Highs are expected to reach only into the 50s.
