Saturday: A few showers possible in the late morning and early afternoon. Otherwise, partly cloudy. High 80
Sunday: Bright sunshine throughout the day. High 86
High pressure will influence our weather this weekend. There's a slight chance of seeing a shower or two on Saturday due to a weak disturbance crossing the state but most of us will remain dry. Temperatures will be cooler, with a high of 80 and lower humidity. Sunday will be a bit warmer with just a few clouds and highs in the mid-80s. Bacon Fest at the Fraze Pavilion will be sizzling with moderate, but not oppressive humidity levels.
On Monday, the Great North American Eclipse will be here! Fortunately, the Miami Valley will have just a few clouds between 1 and 4 p.m. Peak eclipse will occur at 2:29 in Dayton at 88.8% solar coverage. The sky will dim just a bit, but the remaining 11.2% of sun exposure will be so bright that the sky will not go dark. What will be interesting is the temperature profile for Monday. Our high for the day is 87 degrees, but that will likely occur after the eclipse. The temperature may decrease a few degrees due to the lack of sunlight in the 2:00 hour. Either way, you will still need the safety glasses to view the sun. We are giving away 1800 free glasses at the Fraze Pavilion beginning at noon on Monday.
