Lows to reach 40s tonight

Many areas will drop to the upper 40s tonight as skies clear.

"For the first time in two months, since June 14, we expect the low to 'officially' drop below 49 at the Dayton Airport," said Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

Temperatures will be near 60 by 11 p.m or midnight. Temperatures will drop to about 47 in the outlying areas by sunrise, and down to 52 in urban areas. Many will be in the upper 40s.

It will be sunny with some thin, wispy clouds Friday afternoon, in large part due to the very dry air that allows the big cool down overnight, Simpson said. Temperatures will climb back into the upper 70s by the afternoon. Just some high clouds will remain for Friday night, and temperatures will fall back to the lower 50s by Saturday sunrise.

There may be a stray shower late in the day Saturday, but many will stay dry until Sunday. Highs will be in the lower 80s.

Sunday will be partly sunny with a few scattered showers or thundershowers, Simpson said. It will be more humid with a high of 85. Rain will become more widespread by Sunday night as an area of low pressure approaches from the west
