A warming trend is about to begin as the Bengals kick off their season opener against the Vikings on Sunday. Highs will rise to near 90 degrees as high pressure to our southeast places the Tri-State in a hot holding pattern.
Lows Sunday night bottom out near 67.
Although Sunday will be another beautiful, sunny day, we'll begin to feel moisture from the south creeping back in. The day will still feel somewhat comfortable, but humidity in the air will be noticeable. Southwest winds will continue to stay on the breezy side as temperatures quickly rise during the day.
High heat starts off the work week as well. We'll be at or near 90 degrees through Tuesday before the next cold front arrives Wednesday and brings with it our first chance of cooling showers and a few thunderstorms. The cool boundary will only take temperatures down into the mid 80s, which is still above normal for this time of year. Our normal high right now is 81 degrees. Average high temperatures will slide into the upper 70s by the time fall arrives in 11 days. Long-range forecasts suggest we may be dealing with above-normal temperatures throughout September.
