It will be a muggy and stormy week with the possibility of damaging storms packing high winds and hail.
Humid air that moved into Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky from the northwest over the weekend will linger over the next several days, according to the National Weather System in Wilmington.
That system will produce a slight, 20 percent chance of isolated, damaging winds gusting at more than 60 mph and golf-ball size hail after 4 p.m. today into early Tuesday, said meteorologist Andy Latto.
Otherwise, today should be a mix of sun and clouds with a high of 90 degrees.
The chance for afternoon and early evening storms will increase as the week unfolds.
High temperatures will soar to the 90-degree mark and above with a mix of sun and clouds.
The region is down nearly 1.4 inches in rainfall so far this month and, so far this year, down more than 5 inches.
Normally, 25.26 inches has fallen at this point, compared with 20.09 that has been recorded, Latto said.
