A few thunderstorms today brought some gusty winds and heavy rain.  Up next week:  HEAT!  We'll see another round at 90.   #dayton  
Today we had some showers and thunderstorms develop this afternoon.  Some of them produced some hail just south of Xenia, very heavy rainfall at the Dayton Celtic Festival and gusty winds in Greene County. Thanks to Rroxbury3 who sent us this photo of a tree limb down near Xenia. If you have weather photos please…

Today's weather blog for #dayton  Muggy with showers for the first half of the day.  
Where did summer go?  Yesterday felt more like fall.  Much of the day temperatures stayed in the 60's.  The official high is 72 but that was at 9:37pm.  The record low maximum temperature for July 8th is 71 set back in 1915...so we missed a record by one degree. We're going to see the chance…

Tonight's weather blog: soaking rains from Bill now more showers and storms possible tomorrow.   #dayton   #daywx  
The last several days the northern half of the Miami Valley saw heavy rain but today it was the central and southern half.  This morning's rain was due to what was once Tropical Storm Bill.  Some areas picked up one to as much as three inches of rainfall causing flash flooding.  Here's a look at…

Highs reach 90 again but today we're adding a lot of humidity.  Feels GROSS!   #dayton  
We've seen 90 degrees the last two days and will hit 90 again today.  The difference today - HIGH HUMIDITY.  You'll feel it as you walk out the door this morning.  Dew points are in the middle to upper 60's which is very uncomfortable.  It's almost like we have a tropical air mass in place…

The heat is on!!  Highs near 90 the next few days.  Showers and storms possible too in #dayton  
Hopefully you got out and enjoyed yesterday!  It was great with highs near 80 degrees and some hazy sunshine.  Did you notice the haze in the sky?  There are wild fires in Canada and since our winds were out of the northwest some of the smoke from up north filtered right into the Miami Valley.…

High heat and storms today - more heat and storms tomorrow for #dayton  
Hopefully you enjoyed the day by the pool or stayed inside with the AC on full blast.  It was very hot and humid today!  Highs made it to 91 degrees at Dayton International Airport but the humidity made it feel even worse.  Dew points were in the middle to upper 70's which is really unheard…

Tonight's weather blog for #dayton  A great end to the weekend!  I also added a little bit about my recent vacation to Florida.  
The rain and clouds cleared out just in time for the holiday weekend!  Today highs were near 80 across most of the Miami Valley. Here are some of the stats from the Fourth of July in Dayton. High pressure is keeping us dry and mostly clear tonight.  There's a slight chance a little patchy fog…

I had a great time talking with Sean D Tucker.  I got to see what kind of weather conditions he can and cannot fly in.  Great guy and I learned a lot. 
Weather plays an important role with smaller air crafts.

Today's weather blog for #dayton  another hot one today!  Hit the pool or stay in the AC.  
Yesterday we hit a high of 91 degrees!  It was the first time we hit 90 all year long and since September 2014. Today we'll hit 90 again.  We're seeing a few clouds this morning but we'll see sunshine for the afternoon.  The humidity will be relatively low today however it will rise later this…

Today's weather blog for #dayton  one word to describe this morning:  refreshing!  Ahhh feels great.  Enjoy today because it gets warmer for the end of the week. 
As I walked out the door this morning I let out an "ahhhh" because it felt great!  The humidity is gone, temperatures have dropped and it just feels refreshing. Yesterday we had a couple rounds of showers and thunderstorms.  Many areas picked up between a quarter of an inch to almost an inch of rainfall.…
