Orionid meteor shower peaks this week

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini talks about where and where to look for the shower.

After finding Venus and Mars early in the week, another special treat awaits you in the early morning sky heading into the weekend! 

The Orionid meteor shower will be peaking Friday night through Saturday morning. Debris from Haley's comet will hit the Earth's atmosphere, creating the show.

The Orionid shower gets its name because the meteors look like they are coming  from the constellation Orion. This year, 10 to 30 meteors per hour are possible. 

Skies will be dark all night because the moon will set early Friday evening, allowing for a good show. The best chance to see the most meteors may be from 2 a.m. until sunrise.

A slow warm-up is getting underway across the Miami Valley which will bring temperatures back up nearly 10 degrees above normal by this weekend. But a surge of very chilly air is brewing up in Canada, and may be getting set to head south. Chief meteorologist Eric Elwell explains when this big change will likely occur.

A slow warming trend is underway with above-average temperatures expected Wednesday.

Temperatures of 70 degrees will return through the weekend as a massive area of high pressure slowly pushes across the eastern half off the country, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.

However, a major pattern shift is underway in northwestern Canada, where colder air is building. 

This colder air is forecast by most of the long-range models to begin heading southward into the northern U.S. later this weekend.

The chilliest air of the season could cross the Miami Valley by the middle of next week with current models predicting our first frost by late next week.

Temperatures may not climb out of the lower 50s next week, with some models suggesting snow near the Great Lakes by Wednesday night.

Although it’s too early to know whether the precipitation will materialize, Elwell said to enjoy the upcoming weekend warmth while it lasts Because big changes could come next week.
