Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – 4:30 P.M. UPDATE: Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis said we can expect wind gusts getting up to 50 to 60 miles per hour Thursday night and early Friday.

High winds should be in the area through Thursday night. Friday will show diminishing winds with high temperatures in the 50s. Saturday looks like a nice day with partly sunny skies and a high temperature 68.

A High Wind Watch will go into effect for most of the Miami Valley at 10 p.m. Thursday.

Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik said while an isolated shower could pop up with some daytime heating today, most of us will enjoy a little mid-late day sun with highs in the low 70s. It will be windy, however, with gusts up around 35 mph at times.

Tonight, winds die down and it will be dry and cool. Thursday morning will be dry for the drive to work, but showers develop as we head into the afternoon hours. There could be some rumbles of thunder, but a better chance of thunderstorms arrives Thursday night as the wind really picks up.

The National Weather Service said wind gusts of 25 to 35 mph are expected Wednesday followed by strong winds gust of up to 60 mph possible on Thursday.
