Dry Weekend, Not Much of a Chance of Rain Next Week
By Ashley Smith, Ethan Emery and Steve Horstmeyer
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The low and high temperatures in Cincinnati Thursday were 61° and 80°.
Warm weather will be the main feature again tomorrow and through the weekend with slight cooling for Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be in the mid 80s Friday, fall to 80° Saturday and into the upper 70s for Sunday and Monday. The normal high for this time of year is 78º.
It seems on these last couple of days of summer we are soaking in the warmer weather. It will remain dry with only small chance for rain over the next several days.
In fact the medium-range models that go out 10 days have most locations in the FOX19 NOW viewing area receiving zero rainfall for the remainder of the month. Locations that get rain will measure only a couple hundredths if an inch at most.
This may go down as one of the driest Septembers in Cincinnati history. Throudh Thursday only 0.35″ of rain has fallen at CVG. If no more falls this will be the 4th driest September of record.
Here are the 9 driest:
- 0.81″ 1963
- 0.26″ 1908
- 0.28″ 1900
- 0.43″ 1978
- 0.49″ 1895
- 0.55″ 1994/1997
- 0.57″ 2010
- 0.61″ 2019
Notice the tie for number 6, thus only 8 numbered rows but nine years..
Fall officially begins early Saturday morning at 2:50 am EDT. Monday night football should be just fine at Paycor Stadium with dry weather and near normal temperatures.
A few sprinkles may fall Thursday next week but only in Mason, Robertson, Lewis and Adams Counties. If you live there do not get excited, the rain will be very light and not enough.
