Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
SW flow will return late tonight and tomorrow ahead a weak front that will approach the area during the day Saturday. This will rebound temps back into the 50s to near 60 tomorrow with sunshine. Winds may be gusty at times ahead of this front, gusts may approach 40 mph at times. Rain showers will accompany the front late tomorrow night with temps cooling off a bit in the upper 40s and lower 50s during the day Saturday with sunshine returning. Dryer but chillier conditions will be in place Saturday night. During the day Sunday and Sunday night a storm system will move just South of the region, this could potentially bring colder air down with some moisture around. This means there may be some rain/snow showers around during this period.
Another moderating trend will be felt Monday and into Tuesday behind this storm with temps back to near 50 by Tuesday. It appears we will continue this pattern of a few days of warm followed by a few days of cold and chances of rain/snow for the next week at least.
