From record heat and storms to cold air

Typical February conditions for weekend

Strong to severe storms will diminish overnight.

A record high temperature of 78 degrees has been recorded at CVG. The daily high record was 72 set back in 1930. The all time record for February was 76 set in 1932. The previous winter maximum temperature for the three month period of Dec-Jan-Feb, was 77 set on January 24, 1943. This exceptionally warm and moist air will be fuel for developing evening storms. 

February conditions return

A cold front will push through the Tri-State overnight and our warm temperatures will tumble.

We could also see a few flurries or a brief snow shower Saturday as temperatures fall into the afternoon. By 4 p.m. we will likely be in the upper 30s. So it will be a far cry from the near 80 degree, recording breaking temperatures we saw Friday.


New all time record high temp!

On Sunday, sunshine returns. Highs will only reach the mid 40s, seasonal for this time of year. Another warm up is just around the corner.
