The hottest afternoon in over a year, relief on the way

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The official high temperature Monday reached 95 degrees at CVG, the hottest in over a year.

The last time the high temperature equaled or exceeded 95 degrees was July 5, 2018. The official heat index Monday peaked at 97 degrees.

Tuesday will be hot again, but cloud cover and more widespread rain will reverse the trend Wednesday.

Through the remainder of the evening one or two brief, light showers or pop-up thunderstorms will develop in a few spots, but most areas will remain dry.

Overnight, the weather will be sultry and showers will be hard to come by.

Fayette, Union, and Franklin Counties may see a few showers at daybreak.

Tuesday, Wednesday morning and Thursday will see a few showers. The showers will end Friday morning.

By Thursday, both temperatures and humidity levels will be dropping leading the way to a nice weekend.
