The remnants of what was once Hurricane Harvey could bring some surprising changes to the Tri-State on Friday.
While we will not get the unprecedented rainfall that hit Texas and the Gulf Coastal Region, we could get enough rainfall to challenge our Sept. 1 records at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
We are forecasting 2-4 inches of rain in our watch area. The record rainfall for Sept. 1 at CVG is 2.17 inches set in 2003. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect Friday for all of Northern Kentucky.
Our minimum high temperature for the date is also at risk of tumbling in an unseasonably cool air mass accompanying the rainfall. Our record minimum high for Sept. 1 is 64 degrees set 85 years ago in 1892. Our forecasted high for Friday is 62, which is a 21-degree departure from our normal high of 83 degrees.
Given the forecast, we could shatter one if not both records. At any rate, we’ll surely come close.
