CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - It was so brutally cold Tuesday morning, the Tri-State matched a weather record set before all of us were even alive.
The morning low plunged to 12 degrees around 7 a.m. at Northern Kentucky International Airport. The last time we shivered this much on Nov. 18 was 134 years ago in 1880, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
Areas around the region slipped even lower, with 8 degrees recorded in the Butler County community of Millville; 10 in Harrison and South Lebanon and 11 in Bethel.
The region is expected to break a record Tuesday afternoon for the coldest daytime high temperature on this date. The mercury will struggle to reach 18 degrees by 4 p.m., well below the record "low" high of 26 degrees set in 1951.
The low Tuesday night into early Wednesday will tumble to 14 degrees. That is above the record low of 5 degrees from 1880.
The Tri-State is not alone in the deep freeze this week.
