***EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING FOR HAMILTON COUNTY THROUGH 8PM MONDAY***
***HEAT ADVISORY FOR ALL OF NORTHERN KENTUCKY ALONG WITH OHIO, SWITZERLAND, CLERMONT, BROWN, HIGHLAND, ADAMS COUNTY THROUGH 8PM MONDAY***
Today: Mostly cloudy. Scattered showers and storms. Hot and humid. High: 91.
Tonight: Any showers and storms ending this evening then partly to mostly cloudy overnight. Warm and muggy. Low: 70
Good morning! It's more of the same! In fact, it feels like a sauna when you step outside this morning with very warm temperatures and very high humidity. We will be a few degrees cooler today compared to yesterday with highs in the lower 90s and a heat index near 100. But that's still hot. One way you can cool down? Get a thunderstorm over you. There will be a scattering of storms around, especially this afternoon. But not everyone will see them. Where you do see storms, expect some heavy downpours. These storms will form ahead of a slow-moving cold front that will be on top of us tonight. Behind it, we'll take a few more degrees off the high the next couple of days, but overall, it will stay pretty hot. I do see some better relief from the heat in the extended forecast, but it comes at a price. The weather could get very active by week's end. For more, please join me until 7 on Local 12 and fro m 7-9 on Star 64. I'll also have an update on Local 12 News at Noon. Have a good day and stay cool!
