Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
A cold front that swept through Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky along with some rain Sunday chased out the humid air, clearing the way for a nice stretch of weather this week.
It will feel noticeably less sticky today with a sunny high of 86 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
Tonight should be clear and around 62.
Tuesday will be a near carbon copy with more sun and a high of 87 degrees.
Overnight lows will be in the mid-to-upper 60s.
On Wednesday, the mercury will creep to the 90 degree mark before plunging in a big way as another cold front arrives Wednesday night and early Thursday, said meteorologist John Franks.
Thursday should bring a 30 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m. The high will be near 86.
By Friday, the high temperature will only climb to 81 degrees, about 4 degrees below normal for this time of year, said meteorologist John Franks.
“The first below-normal temperature we’ve seen almost all summer,” he said. “It will be welcome by a lot of people.”
More rain could fall Friday before the skies dry out for the weekend amid continued cooler temperatures.
The high on Saturday will struggle to reach 79.
