Well the flurries did not disappoint yesterday. Rain/snow showers started forming in the afternoon and were widely scattered through the evening. Once the temperatures dropped, it switched to all snow and Brandon Redmond, of Darke County, with the Severe Weather Alert Team, SWAT, managed to grab this image of the snow falling on their Severe Weather Emergency Response Vehicle, SWERV. The SWERV is their storm chasing vehicle. You can make out the logo on the hood when the snow started, but after a short amount of time the snow continued to cover the vehicle.
They were lucky enough to be under one isolated snow shower in the evening. Most of the area did not see snowfall that impressive, however many of us did see our first snowflakes of the season. Twitter was all abuzz about the snow in Dayton. I am sure SWAT got a few more photos and feel free to check out their site: SWATChasers.com, special thanks to them for sharing the photos.
On to the forecast. Today will be chilly, again. Right now most of the area is sitting in the upper 20's and wind chills around 20. We will reach a high in the mid 40's today with mostly sunny skies. Tomorrow we will warm into the upper 50's for a sunny Saturday. Lower 60's for Sunday and Monday, with a chance for rain both days. We will dry out later in the week but with chilly weather, much like today. Stay warm, enjoy your weekend, and have a good one!
