A last chance at summer


Warm weather winding down, will be gone Friday

CLIFTON HEIGHTS - University of Cincinnati freshman Nathan Siover was not going to let a load of homework stop him from enjoying one last blast of summer-like weather.

The 19-year-old ditched his sweatshirt and sat - books in his lap - in the center of campus Monday. Dozens of other students, donning shorts and sleeveless shirts, enjoyed the 77-degree sunshine.

"It's great to have a little reminder of summer before winter," Siover said. "In Cincinnati the weather always turns (quickly). It's completely crazy."

In fact, it's all downhill after today.

The region may see a record-breaking high of 78 today, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, breaking a 1987 record. But it will cool down each day after today, as a storm system passes through.

Wednesday, the high will be in the upper 60s. On Thursday, it will dip to the lower 60s.

And by Friday, you're back to sweaters and the mid-50s, said meteorologist Robin Gerhardt.

Siover said he is not looking forward to the inevitable change: "I don't know what winter will be like, but walking around campus in the winter is no fun."
