Hot & dry Memorial Day, rain arrives midweek

Chance at our first 90-degree day Tuesday
Posted at 4:01 AM, May 30, 2022

This weekend is referred to as the “unofficial start to summer” and boy does it feel like it today.

It has been a perfect summer day full of sunshine and warmth across the Tri-State. Temperatures are hanging out in the mid to upper 80s with a touch more humidity than what we saw Saturday and Sunday. Wind from the south will stick around this evening 10-15 mph. A great evening to honor our fallen but also enjoy the great weather.

The warm and humid weather will carry on overnight into Tuesday morning. Skies stay clear overnight with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. That is around 10-degrees above normal. Wind should stay light.

More heat sweeps in on Tuesday as we will have a chance at reaching 90-degrees for the first time this year. The last 90-degree day in Cincinnati was back in August of last year! I have a bigger breakdown of the heat at this link.

The next chance at rain will be Wednesday with a low-pressure system to our north bringing a cold front through. That will bring a small chance at strong and severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center currently has the Tri-State in a Marginal Risk for severe storms. Strong wind and large hail will be the two threats.

It looks like most of the rain will be on Wednesday, but there will be some leftover rain into Thursday. Behind that is a cool down to end the week.
