Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Generally mostly cloudy skies will be the story with a few showers over the next few days. From time to time there will be breaks in the overcast leading to more instability showers. Most showers will be light but a rumble of thunder is not out of the question tomorrow afternoon and evening. All of this is a result of a cut off dying low that will slowly rotate NE over the next few days. Temps will remain cool in the 50s tomorrow and Friday and in the 60s by the weekend. As the weekend approaches the low will begin to really wind down meaning lesser chances of showers and mainly cloudy skies hanging around. By early next week a warm front will begin to lift through with a few showers and storms. The main story will be a trend towards warmer air. Highs may be near 80 mid-week.
There appears to be a strong dividing line between cold air in the North East and very warm humid air to our SW. This could mean plenty of storms that make a run at us from the NW with heavy rain and strong winds late next week and the following weekend.
