Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
High pressure will settle in overnight allowing temps to drop to the lower 20s in many locations. This will likely kill any tender vegetation that has started to grow over the last few days.Take precautions to cover and protect these plants. Milder air returns Wednesday and definitely Thursday as a SW wind begins to take hold ahead of our next weather maker. Friday another cold front will approach late in the day with breezy showery weather lasting into the night and early Saturday. The weekend looks cooler but overall not too bad with sun and clouds mixed and temps near 60 to 65.
Another low brings showery weather early next week but it looks to remain mild with temps in the 60s if not near 70 by mid-week next week as things dry out.
