2012 Record Heatwave Recap

Well I am happy to say, the heatwave is over. We topped out at 102 three days during the heatwave and finally are done with the 90's.  We tied the record for the first day at 102, but the last two 102 days we broke the record high, which was 100.  I was at an outdoor wedding and reception on Saturday and BOY was it hot! I am excited about the mid-upper 80's for the day today. Now we did NOT break the all-time longest heatwave. That was set in 1901 with 19 days... but 11 straight days of 90+ temps... not to shabby, but definitely sweaty.

As mentioned, today we will reach a high of 86. The cold front is slowly pushing to the south. The far southern part of Ohio may see an isolated shower this morning as the cooler air pushes in from the north and the heat and rain move towards Kentucky. Mostly sunny later today and for the upcoming days as highs stay in the mid 80's for the entire week ahead. There is a very slight chance for rain Thursday and still a slim chance for rain for the upcoming weekend. The rain looks scattered enough that I would not change any weekend plans yet, but I will keep you posted. Enjoy the cooler temperatures and lower humidity. Have a good one!
