Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
Showers and thunderstorms in the forecast today could be heavy.
The National Weather Service in Wilmington is calling for a quarter of an inch across most of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. But up to an inch or more could accumulate in heavy downpours, said meteorologist Steve Rhebenach.
The worst of the weather is expected after 5 p.m., just in time for the evening commute. The rain comes as a cold front moves in from the northwest, bringing cooler temperatures for a few days, Rhebenach said.
It’s still fairly muggy out this morning with the temperature at 67 degrees in downtown Cincinnati. Today’s high temperature will push to 86 degrees. There’s a 60 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms today and tonight. The overnight low will only fall to 69.
Friday and Saturday will feel more comfortable with highs in the low to mid-80s with plenty of sun. Overnight lows will slip into the 50s and low 60s. By Sunday, the mercury will begin to creep near the 90-degree mark with a high of 88. By Monday, we will hit 90 degrees and stay there through at least Wednesday.
After today’s rain, the next several days will be dry. Our next chance for precipitation won’t be until Wednesday.
