sun-heat-hot-weather-small.jpg(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – It’s not quite Christmas in July, but it is unusually cool for what is normally a sweltering summer.

The tri-state is experiencing record-low temperatures this week. Dropping to 52 degrees Wednesday morning, Cincinnati has tied its record low for July 16 originally set in 1945, according to the National Weather Service.

Andrew Snyder with the weather service said a shift in the jet stream is allowing colder air from Canada to pour into the region.

“At the same time, the western part of the U.S. is going to be extremely hot. It’s kind of like a roller coaster. You have hot bubbles and cool bubbles,” said Snyder.

Snyder says the highs are expected to be in the low-to-mid 70s, and the night-time lows will be in the 50s. Those ranges are where most of July’s record low temperatures are found.

Wednesday’s high is expected to be around 73 with a slight chance of showers, falling to another possible record setting low of 54 overnight, then warming up to the mid-70s on Thursday. By Friday, high temperatures in the 80s are expected to return.
