Oktoberfest forecast calls for fall temperatures

DAYTON — Oktoberfest falls on the first weekend of fall.

The fall equinox is at 9:54 p.m. Saturday and the weather matches the new season. You might want to put on a pair of jeans and even a sweater this year.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy and cooler. We go from the 90s this week to the upper 60s. Without much sunshine and a breeze, a sweater would probably be a good idea. A few light showers might try and drift north toward the evening but it looks to favor cities south of Dayton. Overall, it will be a pretty good start to the weekend. By 10 p.m. we will be down to about 60 degrees.

Sunday: A little more sunshine is expected, which means it will feel warmer, too. Highs get to the low 70s with dry weather all afternoon.

Humidity won’t be a problem, and the rain chance is low for Saturday, so enjoy the weekend and the fall forecast that arrives just in time.
