A heat advisory is in effect from noon to 8 p.m. today with dangerous temperatures expected: a high of 97 degrees and heat indexes sweltering in the low 100s.
It will be mostly sunny, but there’s a slim chance for popup rain showers and thunderstorms this morning.
Should storms develop, they will be nothing like the system that rumbled through Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky during lunchtime Tuesday, ripping down trees and knocking out power to more than 40,000 Duke Energy customers, mostly in Hamilton County.
Power has been restored to most of those households and businesses. As of this morning, just 85 people across Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky remain in the dark, according to the utility’s website.
The weather, however, could get rough again Thursday. There’s a 60 percent for dangerous storms after 5 p.m. The main threats are winds roaring more than 60 mph, golf-size hail and lightning.
The temperature will be 96 degrees with a heat index as high as 105.
