Today was a GREAT day despite it being January 23rd. We hit a high of 48 at the Dayton Airport today, fantastic! With it being so warm and wonderful, the only thing to make it better would have been some sun. We saw the clouds linger all day today which kept things kinda dreary despite the warm temps.
We got rain on the way for early Sunday morning and a few light lingering scattered showers through the day. Temps look to warm up above 50 for tomorrow before we bottom up as we head into the workweek. A few flurries could be around the area for Monday morning, and despite starting the day off around freezing, windy conditions the next three days should be enough to dry the roads off and icing not being a major problem. Light snow showers as we head into Monday night and Tuesday. Right now we are looking at about 1-1.5 inches of snow, so not enough for any major problems, but enough to make the roads a little slick and also turn things white again.
What really will be interesting is the system on Thursday and Friday. The system's track will determine if we see rain or snow. This system will have a lot of moisture with it and could cause some major problems for some parts of the plains and Midwest.... I will keep you posted on it, but right now the models cant make up their mind yet, one models shows it tracking right over us giving us a lot of rain with a little snow, the next model shows it tracking south of us, giving us a modest accumulation of snow.... Once it settles down and gets a little closer, it will be more certain. Have a good one!
