Heat gives way to cooler air later this week

Cooler air comes on the heals of a weak front

Unseasonably warm air is around for the next few days -- but it will cool down soon.

We'll top out at 89 by 4 p.m. While this isn't record-setting heat (93 in 2007), it's 15 degrees above normal. Humidity levels are lower today so I don't expect much of a heat index this afternoon. 

An Air Quality Advisory has been issued for the Greater Cincinnati area. High levels of ozone pollutants will make the air "unhealthy" for sensitive groups. If you fall within that group, limit your time spent outdoors. Avoid refueling or mowing during the afternoon hours.

We'll stay in the upper 80s again on Tuesday -- but with a resurgence of humidity, it will feel like the mid-90s with mostly sunny skies.

Cold front moves through on Wednesday

A cold front finally moves into the Ohio Valley on Wednesday. While this front only brings in isolated rain chances due to the lack of moisture, it will have a huge impact on temperatures in the long term forecast. Wednesday's high comes in at 85 and then we drop to a high of 72 on Thursday.

Cool, dry, refreshing air dominates the forecast going forward. This is the type of air where you can open the windows at night and feel a decent chill in the morning. Enjoy, fall is almost upon us!
