— Three planets will be visible from March 7 through March 11 before dawn, according to Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini, and the moon will be your guide to finding them this week.
March 7 and 8 look to the south/southeast before the sun comes up (from midnight until 7 a.m.) and you should be able to find the moon and then the planet Jupiter which will be just below the moon.
March 9 through March 11, the moon will be close to Mars and Saturn. On the 9th, Mars and Saturn will be to the bottom left of the moon. By the 10th, the moon will be between the two planets.

— This year for the Vectren Dayton Air Show, the weather will try to cooperate, but it’s a good idea to be weather-aware, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini said.
The rain trickled at the beginning, but skies were clear as performers took to the sky.
For Sunday, it will be a touch warmer with most spots reaching the lower 80s.

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.
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.

— More heat and humidity this weekend with the hottest temperatures in nearly five years by Sunday. More showers and storms likely for next week, said meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs.
Today: A hot and humid afternoon with a few isolated storms possible. For those areas that develop storms, the potential for hail, damaging winds, frequent lightning and heavy rain is possible. Storms will be slow moving, so the potential for minor flooding exists. The rest of the area will be quite steamy with highs around 90 degrees and feeling like the lower to middle 90s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Drying out later tonight, but staying warm and muggy. Overnight lows around 70 degrees.
Sunday: Another hot and humid day with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will rise into the lower 90s with a heat index approaching 100 degrees.
Monday: Partly cloudy, hot and humid again on Monday. Highs once again rise into the lower 90s with a heat index approaching 100 degrees. Chance for a pop-up shower or storm in the afternoon or evening.
Tuesday: Partly sunny with scattered showers and storms. A very warm and muggy day with temperatures well into the upper 80s.
Wednesday: A chance for showers and storms remains in the forecast with highs in the middle 80s.
