Showers, with rumble of thunder, into the overnight

Any showers in the region should remain light through this evening with a possible stray rumble of thunder, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Monday night.

Some pockets of heavier rain are possible overnight with some patches of fog, but visibility shouldn't be compromised. Rain generally will tape toward Tuesday morning, the exception being far southeast of Dayton, in the area of Greene and Clinton counties. Temps will drop slowly through the 70s overnight and into the upper 60s by sunrise.

Look for a continuation of spotty rain Tuesday morning, as afternoon clouds give way to some sun. That sun, coupled with continuing high humidity, could trigger a stray shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon -- most likely in the area of Greene and Clinton counties, Simpson said. Temps will reach the mid-80s.

Watch out for a morning shower or thunderstorm on Wednesday, but most of any weather action should hold off until later in the day, Simpson said. There is a chance for severe storms Wednesday late in the afternoon and into the evening, according to Storm Prediction Center models. The primary threat will be strong winds and heavy rain.

Showers or thunderstorms will linger in the area early on Thursday, but a front pushing south will leave behind drier afternoon weather and a drop in humidity. The highs will only reach the upper 70s.

Sunny skies and low humidity are on tap for Friday and Saturday, but showers and thunderstorms are on the horizon for Sunday.
