It’s very cold this morning, and another chilly day is on the way. Welcome to your morning update for Wednesday, November 14, 2012…
TODAY/TONIGHT: As I write this just before 4:00 AM — and these are the 4 AM readings — Hamilton is down to 20, CVG is sitting at 27, but Lunken Field east of downtown is at 25! In short, it’s a frigid morning. Look for only a 20 to at most 25 degree bounce back, to around 45 in most locations before the day ends. Tonight, lows may drop well into the 20’s again! If you’re sending children to the bus stop, this is DEFINITELY a case where the entire winter outfit is in play…a scarf, mittens, a hat, everything. Definitely be sure you are protected.
THURSDAY-MONDAY: Looking dry still, but we’ll on the backside of high pressure. There are two systems that will pass south of us, one tomorrow and the other on Sunday. I don’t think those do anything except send a few high clouds our way. Temperatures should be back into the 50-55 range for highs through the period. Unfortunately, lows won’t be much warmer. Thursday night I would not be surprised to find lows around 28, and then only warming to the middle 30’s as we head through the weekend.
TUESDAY: Early indications are that this is when we see our next system move in with a chance of rain. Highs will reach 57.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along with us:
A REQUEST TO OUR READERS: The Red Cross still needs a lot of help. They deal with a lot of disasters, but Sandy was a once in a lifetime event for the northeast…and the damage is extensive (and last week’s nor’easter probably hasn’t helped). They still need help to get the residents of NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, and CT back on their feet. I encourage you, please go to redcross.org and make a donation, or text “SANDY” to 90999 and a $10 donation will be added to your phone bill. Also, a post I wrote last Sunday has information about donating to Matthew 25 Ministries if you want to send actual supplies to the coast, or to volunteer to organize supplies. Let’s get the northeast back on their feet.
NEXT UPDATE: Our next update will be either tonight or tomorrow. If I opt not to update the blog, I’ll do a quick social media post to indicate my thoughts on the night’s forecast, similar to yesterday. Until then, take care!
