DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A warm front along the Ohio River is going to slowly lift north this afternoon towards Lake Erie by tonight. We have already experienced heavy rain and flooding across the Miami Valley. For this afternoon, there is a slight risk of severe weather, but the main threat will continue to be flash flooding due heavy rain that fell earlier this morning. The main threat of rain has ended, but there is still a chance of an isolated shower or storm.. There may be some ponding on the roadways and low lying areas. There will be a wide range in temperatures today based on the frontal position. If you live south, you will warm up more quickly since the front will pass by you first and temperatures will be close to 80 later this afternoon. If you live further north, you will be in the 60s most of the day and reach into the low 70s by this evening.
THIS AFTERNOON: Mostly cloudy and more humid. A few showers or storms still possible.. High 77
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, a few showers and storms possible. Low 64
SUNDAY: Partly sunny, windy and warmer. A slight chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm. High 84
A strong cold front is expected to cross the Miami Valley by early afternoon on Monday. Scattered showers and storms may begin as early as late Sunday night and continue through the morning on Monday. Winds will be strong on Monday and Tuesday this week.
