Hot Friday with the chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm

Thursday evening forecast for the Tri-State

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The high Thursday was 94° and the heat index reached 97°. Summer heat will continue Friday with a forecast high temperature of 94° and the heat index again moving into the upper 90s. Scattered showers and a ffew thunderstorms will pop up in the hot and humid air during afternoon and dissipate during evening.

Saturday will bring a day of relief from the 90s. The high will be in the middle 80s and the humidity will be a bit lower. Sunday will have a comfortable start then the heat is back on as the afternoon reaches 90°.

A disturbance over the Bahamas could become Tropical Storm Humberto. It is just getting organized and models indicate it will strengthen quite a bit. Early indications are that the disturbance will follow the East Coast and a “tropical traffic jam” will slow movement of weather systems here. That could delay the much awaited cool down.

Autumn begins before dawn Monday September 23rd and cooler weather should arrive for Fall’s debut.
