No record-long heat wave for Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (AP) - Cincinnati has fallen 1 degree short of breaking the city's 110-year-old record for the longest hot spell with days of 90 or above temperatures.

The National Weather Service says cloudy skies held Wednesday's high to just 89 degrees at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Had the mercury gone up one more notch the city would have had its 18th straight day dealing with at least 90-degree heat.

That means Cincinnati on Tuesday tied the 17-day record set in July 1901.
