Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A cold front will move through this evening allowing for winds to shift West and bring in cooler air. This will end thunderstorms but keep light showers around. Some gusty winds may accompany the front to usher in cooler air. A upper level disturbance will rotate South of the region tomorrow kicking off a few more showers and isolated thunderstorms after some am sunshine mixed with clouds. Cooler air will stay with us through Wednesday as a Northwest flow stays in place. A strong SW flow will return ahead of our next cold front Thursday. Winds may gust to 40 mph bringing temps up to near 70 if not a little better. Showers and a few thunderstorms return Thursday night and Friday as the front settles across the region. Slightly cooler air on Friday will be in place due to cloud cover and showers. The front lifts North as a warm front with sunshine and return Southerly flow over the weekend. This will boost temps into the lower 70s. Another strong storm system with heavy rainfall, winds, and potential severe weather will move along the front Sunday evening through Tuesday of next week. Cooler air will be drug in behind this system.
There appears to be more warm ups for the following week but the continued wet pattern from moisture loaded storms will continue through Easter.
