CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Warm air ahead of a cold front will push high temperatures into the 70s again Tuesday.

As the cold front approaches Cincinnati and the surrounding area, moist air will “pool” ahead of the front and the air will have an almost summertime sticky feel for a few hours. Pooling is what meteorologists call the tendency for humid air to accumulate ahead of a front because air converges there and it is one of the reasons thunderstorms are often associated with cold fronts.

The elements needed for a big severe weather event will be fairly weak during the afternoon and evening and the Storm Prediction Center says there is only a marginal risk for severe storms. The main threat would be wind gusts to between 35 and 40 mph and some small to medium size hail. In addition a few heavy downpours are possible.

Several disturbances will move our way the next few days and both Wednesday and Thursday look wet with rain and thunderstorms. The last of the rain should fall early Friday morning with clearing beginning before noon.
