Dayton Air Show forecast: Warm with chance for showers, storms

Published: Thursday, June 21, 2018 @ 5:47 AM
Updated: Friday, June 22, 2018 @ 6:27 AM

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini looks at the chance for showers and how warm it will get.

This year for the Vectren Dayton Air Show, the weather will try to cooperate, but it’s a good idea to be weather-aware, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. 

There’s the chance for a few showers or storms. Organizers say visibility and cloud levels determine the type of show pilots will perform. If there are low clouds, they may run a flat/low show, which will keep the planes closer to the ground so spectators can see them. If clouds are broken or clear, the planes can fly higher.

Saturday: Highs will be around 80. Clouds will be broken for the afternoon. and it will still feel muggy. A passing shower or storm can't be ruled out in the morning or afternoon, but it won’t be very widespread.

>> WHIO Doppler 7 Interactive Radar

Sunday: We’ll see more sunshine and it will be a little warmer with highs in the low to mid-80s. It will still feel muggy for the afternoon. The best chance to stay dry is for the afternoon.

Don’t forget to put on sunscreen, even with scattered clouds. Also stay hydrated, Zontini said. Thankfully the weekend will feel a little more comfortable than how it was at the beginning of the week.

Air show leaders said there’s little shade at the airport to protect you from the sun. 

There will be fountains for free water. If anyone does start to feel ill, they should go to one of the EMS tents or to one of the paramedics that will on bicycles.
