Warm Wednesday night, possible rain late Thursday

Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60s and rise back into the mid 80s by the afternoon, said Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

The high Wednesday made it to 86 degrees at the Dayton International Airport, making it the second warmest day of the year, Simpson said. Previously,we hit 87 degrees on May 15.

It will get a bit breezy again Thursday afternoon as there’s a chance for a few isolated showers or thunderstorms, mainly west of Interstate 75.

Friday, possible storms both early and late in the day. Early storms should just bring rain, thunder and lightning. Later in the day, depending on how much sun shines through, storms could get strong to severe with wind and hail possible.

Saturday, expect showers and thunderstorms. A lack of appreciable sun should hold the threat of severe weather down to a minimum. A greater threat will be heavy rain at some point, and the general consensus is that the most likely time frame will be Saturday night. Highs Friday and Saturday will be in the low to mid 80s.

Sunday looks to be a wet day too, but there are some indications the rain may taper down Sunday afternoon. By the time the rain ends, we could see as much as 2”-3” of total rain. Highs will reach into the upper 70s Sunday.

Monday will be dry and cooler with some sun. Highs are expected in the lower 70s.
