- Windy Tuesday
- Below Average Temps
- Frost Potential Late Week
It’s still a bit windy and an isolated shower can’t be ruled out, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek said Monday afternoon. Skies will be cloudy skies with temps falling through the 50s.
Windy conditions were blamed for blowing out windows at the Arcade Square building in downtown Dayton at West Fourth and Ludlow streets sometime after 5 p.m.
No one was injured, but police put up crime scene tape to force pedestrians to the other side of the street to avoid shards of glass that had fallen onto the sidewalk. City/county maintenance crews were called to board up the windows.
Monday afternoon’s winds were a prelude to a wind advisory the National Weather Service in Wilmington said will be in effect from has issued a Wind Advisory from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday. The advisory is in effect for Auglaize, Darke, Shelby, Miami, Champaign, Clark, Preble, Montgomery and Greene counties.
The wind will back off for a bit tonight and skies will clear late. It will be chillier with lows in the low to mid-40s.
Tuesday: We’ll start the day with sun and a light breeze. However, the wind will begin to increase by late morning. The wind will gust even higher during the afternoon and early evening. Gusts may be as high as 40mph which will be enough to cause issues on the roads, especially for high profile vehicles. Trash cans and loose yard items may blow around in neighborhoods as well. Highs will be in the upper 50s.
Tuesday night, winds will subside but a small disturbance will bring a few showers to the area. Lows in the low 40s.
Wednesday: A few more showers will potentially impact the morning commute, but clouds will give way to some sun in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 50s, almost 10 degrees below average.
Thursday: Mostly sunny and breezy. Highs still below average, in the mid 50s.
Friday: It may cold enough for some scattered frost in the morning, especially if winds are clam and we have clear enough skies. Sun will give way to some clouds in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 50s.
Saturday: More clouds will move into the area as a storm system passes to the south. Highs in the mid 50s.
