Springfield church may face fines after cutting trees in historic area

Sun continues Thursday after near record cold


The Dayton area was 3 degrees away from setting a cold temperature record this morning.

Temperatures dropped to 25 degrees out at the Dayton International Airport, falling short of the record low of 22 degrees, set in 1935, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

The southerly breeze will help keep temperatures from dropping too far. Temperatures are expected to settle down through the 40s this evening, and drop to the mid 30s for most on Thursday morning, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said.

"Some places that are protected from the wind a bit may drop to the lower 30s and see some frost," he said, adding "unlike last night, plants will not be in jeopardy."

Thursday will be another mostly sunny day, with a bit of a breeze again in the afternoon.

"That wind from the south will help us reach the lower 60s in the afternoon," Simpson said. "Some clouds then arrive at night as we drop only into the mid 40s for Friday morning.

On Friday, it will be mostly cloudy with a few light showers possible through the day, with greater chances north of Interstate 70. For areas south, there is only the chance of rain.

Temperatures should climb back into the mid 60s. A weak cold front will move through Friday night and should bring clearing by Saturday morning as temperatures fall back into the lower 40s.

Instead of early showers and lingering clouds, it now looks like Saturday should be mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the mid 60s, Simpson said. "We'll stay mainly clear Saturday night and drop back into the low to mid 40s by sunrise Easter."

More sunshine will finish off an "egg-celent" weekend. Highs for Easter Sunday will reach the upper 60s. Sunrise is at 6:52 a.m. for Dayton.

Showers make a return to start the workweek on Monday. Despite that and clouds, Monday will be mild with highs in the mid 60s after a start in the lower 50s.
