 Three things to look forward to this spring

Published: Thursday, February 22, 2018 @ 12:25 PM

It has been a very wet week in the Miami Valley, but it is also a turning point. We are now less than a month from the astronomical start to spring. On March 20 the vernal equinox will take place, transitioning us to the new season. 

Days of rain getting underway

  1. Daylight: The days will get longer. Daylight Saving Time begins March 11, which will help increase the amount of daylight but naturally the days get longer during the transition from the winter solstice to the summer solstice. From Feb. 20 to March 20 we will see an increase of a little more than an hour of daylight.                                      Latest weather video: Watch our five day forecast
  2. Low Snow: The chance for snow drops off. On average, the latest we see an inch of snow in Dayton is March 10. That doesn’t mean we won’t get snow in March, just statistically speaking it becomes less likely. There will be a greater chance though for spring storms as severe weather season kicks in.  
  3. Warmer: It will gradually get warmer. The average afternoon high towards the end of February is around 40 degrees but by the first day of spring it warms up to 51 degrees. The angle of the sun and the length of day helps to increase our average high. 

Keep up with the rain this week by using the WHIO weather App.
