Near record lows coming overnight


Clear skies this evening will drop temperatures to near record levels overnight into Tuesday, but take heart because the high by week’s end will reach into the 60s for the first time since March 10, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said.

Temps will drop through the 30s tonight and all the way down into the mid 20s by Tuesday morning.

The normal low is 37. Record lows are near 20, Simpson said, so this is a pretty cold period to start this time of year in the region.

Even with mostly sunny skies for Tuesday, temps will be about 15 degrees below average with a high in the low 40s.

Wednesday starts in the mid 20s again, but with more sun we’ll add a few degrees, expecting a high around 47.

Thursday will be milder, with temps back into the 50s in the afternoon, but sun will give way to clouds with the chance of showers south of Dayton late or in the evening.

Sun returns through the day on Friday with highs again in the 50s.

Saturday is shaping up to be the best day of the week with sun and afternoon temps in the low 60s — the first time the region will hit 60 since March 10.

Rain is back Sunday, but high temperatures will register again in the 60s.
