It has been a long time since Ohio has witnessed a storm like what we are currently experiencing. The area of low pressure is extremely strong and one of the strongest storms I can remember. We can occasionally see low pressure this "low" in the winter across the New England area, but for here in Ohio, in October...very impressive. The two areas of low pressure basically teamed up and thus leaving us soaking wet the last few days along with today. Winds will pick up as well this afternoon at about 20-30 mph at times with gusts over 40 mph. Imagine if this was all snow... we could have close to two feet of snow across much of the Miami Valley. Temps will remain pretty chilly today with highs in the 40's and wind chills in the low 40's thanks to the strong winds.
Tonight we could see a few flurries possible to the far northwest, but most of us will be too warm. The rain will start to leave tonight and we will begin to warm heading into the weekend. There is a chance for patchy frost this weekend in the morning, but at least the afternoons will warm up into the upper 50's. The weekend looks to remain dry, but a few rounds or rain are possible early Monday and Wednesday. Temps will sit in the 60's for the first half of next week before another cold blast of air later in the week...more on that in the days to come. Stay dry and have a good one!
