Skies will stay clear this evening and winds are expected to calm down a bit, StormCenter 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar said.

“Tonight, skies will start to clear but more clouds will gather overnight,” Collar said. “This is all out ahead of our next chance for rain, which arrives toward daybreak on Monday.”

Temperatures overnight will stay fairly steady in the middle to upper 40s.

Monday: A few showers are on tap. It’s not expected to be a wash-out, but it looks like the best chances for rain will be during the morning hours. Temperatures will not fluctuate much, with highs in the middle to upper 40s early in the day. A bigger drop in temperatures is expected Monday evening into early Tuesday.

Tuesday: It will be cold early, with daybreak temperatures in the 20s. The National Weather Service has issued a freeze watch from 5 to 9 a.m. for much of the region, including Montgomery, Greene, Clark, Butler, Warren, Miami, Preble, Darke, Champaign, Clinton and Wayne (Indiana) counties. But with more sunshine, temperatures will rebound into the middle to upper 4os in the afternoon.

Wednesday: Highs will be near 60 degrees. A cold front approaches and brings with it the chance for showers and storms during the second half of the day. Some of these storms could be strong.

Thursday: More rain is expected with highs in the middle to upper 40s.

Friday: A few stray showers linger, and it’s also expected to be a cooler day with highs in the lower 40s.
