Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
A cold front expected to arrive late Monday is taking a little longer than expected.
The system should hit now sometime tonight, bringing fall-like temperatures to Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky for the remainder of the week.
Today will be partly sunny. The mercury will only reach 79 degrees in downtown Cincinnati but it still will feel muggy, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
Tonight will be mostly clear with a low around 56.

The rest of the week should be dry with plenty of sun and autumn-like conditions.
Daytime highs will hover in the upper 70s and low 80s with overnight lows in the 50s, well below the normal high of 86 degrees for this time of year.
In fact, temperatures in the 70s are generally what we see in September, according to the weather service.
The next chance for rain looks to be Sunday night and again on Monday.
