Clark State expands tuition discount for military families

Overnight flurries, but no worries


Light and spotty showers will end overnight as a few flurries, but the lingering breeze shouldn’t leave any issues as far as slick roads by morning as below-average temperatures in the southwest Ohio region continue through the next two weeks, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Monday night.

For this week, high temperatures will be in the 20s and 30s.

Tuesday will be fairly sunny but breezy and cold with a high of 38.

“Wind in the afternoon will make it feel like it is in the 20s all day long,” Simpson said.

On Wednesday, a weak cold front moving through the region will bring snow showers. Cold air will linger into Thursday, when temps start in the upper-teens.

Friday’s high will be near 40. Saturday’s will reach the mid-40s.

“Saturday may be the warmest day of the next week,” Simpsons said.

Expect above-average rainfall for the next month.

“This time last year we had above-average rainfall, but were in the midst of the amazing stretch of highs in the 70s and 80s that really dried out the ground and started to set the pattern that led to heat and drought all spring and summer,” he said.

Wetter grounds will increase the chances for colder temperatures because spring sunshine will dry the ground.

The chance for cloud development is enhanced, which in turn “limits warming due to less sunshine,” Simpson said.

The overall forecast for March, April and May calls for slightly above-average temperatures, which we should not see until April, he said. But it also calls for above-average precipitation.

“All of this means drought potential is far less than what we were looking at one year ago right now,” Simpson said.
