Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
A blast of cold air from Canada that built into Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky this weekend will keep temperatures cooler than normal most of this week.
Daytime highs will be about 10 degrees lower than what we usually see this time of year as they struggle to reach the upper 40s and low 50.
Overnight lows plunge into the upper 20s and low 30s, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
There is even a snow/rain mix in the forecast for early Wednesday. No snow accumulation is expected, said meteorologist Andy Latto.
Today is off to a frosty start with a low of 30 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in Hebron.
It will be mostly cloudy with gradually increasing sun this afternoon. The high will reach 48.

Tonight’s low will fall to 29 degrees.
You will definitely want to bundle up if you intend to head out to the voting polls early Tuesday. Later, it will be mostly sunny with a high temperature of 50.
Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance for a rain/snow mix falling by 1 a.m. The system so far is not expected to lead to an all-snow event because the low temperature is only expected to fall to 38, Latto said.
The wintry mix should taper off by 10 a.m. The rest of the day will be cloudy with a high again of 50.
Wednesday night will be 35.
The mercury will begin to gradually warm as the week ends. Daytime highs will push into the upper 50s and low 60s as milder air moves up from the south.
Overnight lows will move up into the 40s.
By the weekend and early next week, daytime highs will hit the mid-to-upper 60s.
