Clouds clearing overnight ahead of a gorgeous Mother's Day

Clearing out tonight
Posted at 4:22 AM, May 07, 2022

It has been a wet week across the area, in fact we broke a record for single day rainfall at CVG on Friday. 1.72 inches of rain fell Friday, beating the previous record of 1.48 inches set in 1908.

This means water levels are up for a lot of creeks, rivers, and streams. We're also closely watching Ohio River levels at Cincinnati. It is projected to hit the action stage by Sunday afternoon, but it looks likely to stay below flood stage of 52'.

Skies will clear out through the overnight hours which will give way to a sunny but cool morning Sunday. Temperatures will likely dip into the mid 40s, possibly cooler in some areas that see clearing quicker.

Mother’s Day looks pristine! It will be perfect out there with temperatures into the upper 60s and low 70s with nothing but sunshine. Winds should stay relatively calm too, out of the southeast at 5 to 10 mph. Overall, a spectacular day to get outside.

Monday is the start of our big warm-up. Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 70s which is above normal for this time of the year. We’ll see plenty of sunshine with a upper level high pressure system holding on strong to our southeast. As that builds and sets up shop in the southeastern half of the U.S., our temperatures will begin to climb.

Midweek high temperatures will likely range from 82 to 87 degrees for most communities. Humidity will bump up slightly, but it doesn’t look too unbearable. One nice thing is that we will stay dry all week long!
