Showers will linger into the overnight as a storm system lifts into the area, but most of the rain will be light StormCenter 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.
Tonight: Showers will be likely, mainly through 3 a.m. before tapering off. Outside of the rain, skies will be mostly cloudy. Temperatures will fall off into the lower 40s by morning.
Tuesday: Any showers will quickly exit early Tuesday morning with gradually clearing skies through the rest of the day. High temperatures will be seasonable in the middle 50s.
Wednesday: The day will start out partly cloudy with increasing clouds during the afternoon. A strong cold front will move into the Miami Valley by late Wednesday evening bringing with it the threat for showers and thunderstorms. Strong winds will also develop as the storm system moves into the Great Lakes with wind gusts over 40mph possible outside of any showers and storms. Some of the rain or storms could produce higher, possibly severe wind gusts as the cold front crosses our area Wednesday night. Temperatures will reach into the lower 60s before showers and storms arrive.
Thursday: Any showers will quickly exit the area early, however strong west to northwest winds are expected to linger through the day. Wind gusts of up to or even over 40mph will be possible before slowly diminishing Thursday night. Temperatures will reach into the middle 50s before dropping late in the day.
Friday: Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast as we end the week. It will remain quite breezy – blustery with highs only reaching into the upper 40s.
Saturday: Mainly sunny skies are expected as we start the weekend. It will remain quite cool with highs only in the middle to upper 40s after some morning frost. It will not be nearly as blustery as northwest winds should drop below 15 to 20mph.
