DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – It was a wet start for the day with a rainy commute to work and school, but the weekend looks a lot better.

An area of low pressure is crossing the region Friday, and that’s what brought the rain back to the Miami Valley. It was steady early this morning, and will become more scattered as the day goes on.

As the low pressure moves east, the area dries out and it looks nice for the late afternoon and evening.

“The weekend looks good, with just a slight chance of a spotty shower both Saturday and Sunday,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik.

Highs Saturday will get up near 70, but Sunday will be slightly cooler.

Next week still looks very active, with periods of rain each day through Thursday. That’s because of a slow moving low which will keep things very unsettled for days.

“Unfortunately, not the best planting weather for the farmers,” Jarosik said.

Temperatures will be mild, with near normal highs in the mid-to-upper 60s. There will be a trend to cooler weather for the second half of the week, as the system pulls away to the east.
