As a storm system moved through the Miami Valley yesterday, we received some light rain… followed by light snow! Accumulation happened during the evening/overnight, and it was mainly on grassy or elevated surfaces. The Dayton International Airport officially picked up .2″ of snow, making it the first measurable snow of the season. Here is a cool shot of the wet snow falling in Kettering, on Whispering Pines Farm:
Today the storm continues to pull away, and we expect dry conditions. As high pressure builds in from the west, clouds that are around through the first part of the day will gradually break up in the mid-late afternoon. We expect clear skies tonight, and tons of sunshine for Friday. To go along with the sun, we will get a nice warming trend:
Our highs will be running more than 10-degrees above normal this weekend! Saturday looks dry, with a bright, sunny sky. On Sunday, most of the day will be sunny, but we may see an increase in cloud cover by late afternoon as another system moves our way. There is the slightest chance of a shower Sunday night into Monday, but right now it looks like much of the area will stay dry. Temperatures will remain above normal through the first half of next week!
