Thunderstorms a threat, then the heat is on


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – An active summer weather pattern has developed for the Miami Valley, delivering a line of thunderstorms that moved through the region Thursday night, with the leading edge passing through the Dayton area between 11 p.m. and midnight.

SPC_outlook_DAY1Scattered power outages were reported from Darke to Greene counties. Dayton Power & Light’s power outage map showed Darke County with about 100 outages as of midnight and Montgomery County’s count was close to 200 at about 12:45 a.m. There were also reports of trees down west of Greenville. No property damage or injuries were reported.

Another round thunderstorms are a threat for Friday, then over the next several days it will be the soaring heat and humidity that will grab your attention as we will likely feel the hottest temperatures of the summer.

“Heat and humidity build for the end of the week and the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 80s on Friday, and near 90 degrees for Saturday and Sunday, and even up there early next week,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik. “Look for the heat to break mid-week’ish, as a cold front moves in with rain and drops temps.”
