Heat Advisory cancelled Monday for parts of Tri-State

9 First Warning Weather Alert Day Monday

A 9 First Warning Weather Alert Day continues Monday. While a Heat Advisory has been cancelled for some counties north of Hamilton County and in parts of SE Indiana, it remains in effect for the majority of the Tri-State until 8 p.m., Monday. Hamilton County, including Cincinnati, is under an Excessive Heat Warning. Heat indices will range between 100-104 degrees.

Heat Advisory & the more severe Excessive Heat Warning across the Tri-State

We reached a high of 94 Sunday at CVG. The heat index reached 103 degrees. While air temperatures may fall a few degrees Monday, dew points near 74 degrees will stay in place until after a cold front pushes through. For that reason a Heat Warning and Advisory will continue into Monday for many counties. We will also continue our 9 First Warning Weather Alert Day as this dangerous weather looms over much of the Tri-State.

Heat index is temps and dew point factored together to get a real feel for the day.

There is relief on the way in the form of a weak cold front. The front arrives Monday and while there is a chance of isolated early showers for the morning commute, the evening commute will likely get the most scattered activity. There is a marginal risk of a strong to severe storm with gusty winds and heavy rain.

Drier air will move in behind the front but it will only be able to give us a slight break in humidity. It should be just enough to keep heat indices below 100 Tuesday. The next cold front will take temperatures into the mid-80s Thursday, but the front may stall and keep the rain chance around through the weekend.
