Here comes the heat

CINCINNATI, Ohio (FOX19) - Get ready here, comes the heat!

After a comfortable start this morning with temperatures in the mid-50s we will rise to 84 degrees this afternoon with a sun and cloud mix.

I do not expect a washout this evening, but the chance for a pop-up thunderstorms across the area will increase after 4 p.m.

The humidity and heat will really crank up for rest of the week into the long Memorial Day weekend.

Thermometers will push into the upper 80s Thursday through Saturday.

We stand a chance for thunderstorms early Thursday morning, along with a pop-up storm chance on Friday, but don’t cancel any outdoor plans.

Our best shot for more widespread rain and thunder will arrive Sunday afternoon and evening.

We also face a chance for showers early Memorial Day on Monday.
