New program seeks to reach Clark County overdose patients, save lives

65 today, cooler this weekend


It reached 65 degrees on the second day of spring!

"Ahead of a cold front we'll stay mild all evening, still in the low- to mid-50s close to midnight," Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said. "Clouds will increase through the evening, but we'll remain dry."

After midnight a cold front will bring some light, scattered showers, which should be gone by sunrise.

Saturday will start near 40 with some clouds, then a good amount of sunshine midday, only to see more clouds develop, Simpson said.

It will be a bit breezy at times with highs near 50. Some clouds linger Saturday night with lows in the mid 20s north to upper 20s south.

Sunday will be dry, but colder.

"We'll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs only rebounding into the upper 30s," Simpson said.

Skies will be mainly clear Sunday night, as temperatures drop back into the 20s.

Monday will be the coldest day of the week, Simpson said, with a start near 20 north and in the low 20s for Dayton and Springfield areas.

"Sun will give way to some afternoon clouds with highs only in the mid to upper 30s," he said. "Just for perspective, the record for lowest high temperature this time of year is mid 20s, so it can be a lot colder."

Tuesday will be cloudy with light snow at times. "Accumulations will be very light, but enough to create some slick spots," Simpson said.

Afternoon highs will be in the upper 30s.

Sunshine is back on Wednesday. Temperatures start in the low 20s and rise to about 40.
