Rain showers and a bit of dense fog are hovering over Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky this morning.
It’s 59 degrees with a lunchtime temperature of 70 expected. Later this afternoon, the mercury should top out around 76 degrees under mostly cloudy skies, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
The rain should move out by 10 a.m., but there will be slight chances for spotty showers throughout the day.
Tonight will be cloudy with a low of 64. The sun will return Thursday with a high temperature expected to soar to 81 degrees. It will be breezy with gusts as high as 34 mph.
A strong cold front will move through the region Thursday night into Friday morning. Strong winds may accompany showers and thunderstorms that develop along with the front.
The overnight low Thursday will slip to 52 degrees – and that will be close to the high temperature on Friday, which will only climb one degree higher.
There’s a 100 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms. Winds will remain brisk and could blow up to 33 mph. Friday night, the temperature will tumble into the mid-30s.
The weekend looks sunny but cool. Daytime highs will be well below normal for this time of year: in the low 50s and 60s. Overnight lows will be in the 30s and 40s.
