CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The low and high temperatures for Cincinnati Wednesday, through 4 pm were 61º and 85º.

Heavy rainfall, high winds, large hail and numerous lightning strikes left behind a big mess this morning. Flooded streets, power outages and blocked highways from downed trees slowed the morning commute.

High temperatures today struggled to rise through the 80s, not because of a lack of sunshine but because of wet soil. The sun provides energy and when the soil is soaking wet a great deal of the incoming solar energy goes to evaporating moisture from the soil and any surface that is wet. The energy used for evaporation then is not available to heat the air.

This evening and overnight will be warm and humid but a welcome break from the stormy weather of yesterday and last night.

Another day of sticky heat and breezy winds will be with us on Saturday, though isolated showers and storms could develop in the late afternoon hours from 6PM until 2 am Sunday thunderstorms could be severe.

Showers end Sunday morning then the afternoon will be cooler and less humid.
