Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
Step outside this morning, and you’ll definitely notice the change.
It’s a good 15 degrees cooler than this time yesterday, when a thick haze of humidity hovered over Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
A cold front chased that soupy weather away Tuesday, leaving a Canadian high pressure system over our area that has ushered in milder conditions, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
It’s just 57 degrees in downtown Cincinnati this morning. You might even need a light jacket or sweater as you head off to work or school.
Later, the mercury will only climb to 74 degrees under a blend of sun and clouds – conditions we usually enjoy in the autumn months of September and October. That’s about 11 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year.
We’re still above the record low high temperatures on this date. That remains 69 degrees, set back in 1999.
The low tonight will fall to a brisk 52 degrees.
The cool streak will last through at least next week. We will enjoy daytime highs in the upper 70s and low 80s with overnight lows in the 50s.
