Jennifer Baker reports:
After another frosty start this morning with temperatures in the 20s, warmer conditions will finally move into Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
Southerly winds will arrive by this afternoon, bringing a high temperature later of 51 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. It will be mostly sunny.
Tonight will be clear with another cold low around 32 degrees.
We’ll stay dry as the mercury rises through Saturday. Friday’s high temperature will reach 51, and Saturday’s will soar to 61 degrees.
But the warmer weather will come at a cost: rain is expected overnight Saturday into Sunday. There’s a 40 percent chance, mainly after 2 a.m.
That chance will jump to 70 percent on Sunday and include the likelihood of thunderstorms. The mercury will climb to 66 degrees, about 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.
Overnight lows will be in the 40s and 50s.
More rain is in the forecast Sunday night and Monday. The high will slip to the mid-50s by Monday.
We could see snow showers early Tuesday as a cold front passes through and the overnight low falls to 36 degrees.
Otherwise, it will be partly sunny with a high near 40. Tuesday night will see a return to frigid temperatures with a low of 25.
The cold blast will stick around through at least Wednesday, when the mercury will struggle to make it up to 36 degrees.
