Rain in forecast for next several days


Isolated showers are developing across the Miami Valley this afternoon.

Some thunder and lightning is possible, and some areas may see some heavy rain.

The threat for any flooding remains low, said Meteorologist Jamie Simpson. Temperatures are expected to fall into the 70s this evening, and clouds will linger overnight as temps fall into the mid-60s.

Wednesday is forecasted to be similar to today with highs at or just above 80 degrees and partly sunny skies. Some isolated showers are possible in the early evening.

The 4th of July holiday in the Miami Valley region is expected to be really wet, Simpson said. Rain will arrive by sunrise and continue at times throughout the day.

“There will be some thunder and lightning. The threat of severe storms is not that high but we may see more localized flooding,” Simpson said. “Thursday night is a tough call right now, but I do expect some rain to still be around when fireworks go off, or at least attempt to be,” he said.

More scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible on Friday, though the day will likely not be as wet as Thursday. “Pockets of heavy rain are possible once again which may mean some more isolated flooding. Highs will be in the low 80s,” Simpson said.
