If you’ve been keeping an eye on the Weather Channel, WCPO Weather, or updates from The National Weather Service for news about Cincinnati, you probably already know what you’re in for– severe weather which is sweeping the Midwest. In fact, earlier today Chicago faced a lot of issues– specifically with power outages, and O’Hare International Airport putting stops/delays to flights– because of weather being so strong as to be compared against the storms that sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald. Still, mixed messages you’ll find in reports makes it hard to decipher just how severe the situation is. Is this storm finally making its way out of Ohio, or is there still more yet to come?
2010’s worst weather by far is being experienced for the city of Cincinnati, Ohio today, reported Terry Goodwin with Casino Gambling Web News. Almost exactly like Chicago experienced today (which you can see for yourself from my earlier article today), Cincinnati is experiencing very strong wind with gusts as high as 60 miles per hour, and power outages.
The USS Post barely chokes out a legible report (as usual) but manages to convey that because of the weather, many flights nearby had been canceled and many more are expected to be, including out of Chicago and Indianapolis (as reported by The National Weather Service). In Cincinnati, schools have been delayed and cancelled due to weather, says the updates on Weather Underground.
At the time of this article, Weather Underground details Cincinnati as the following: high of 75 degrees Fahrenheit, low of 45 (further down the page it details Cincinnati at the airport as being 54 degrees with light rain), 100% chance of precipitation, thunderstorms, tomorrow forecast as nearly the same.
Supposedly record-like bad weather in Cincinnati and other parts of the Midwest is responsible for flight cancellations which are still occurring, and power outages, and school delays and cancellations– that much is true. With the Cincinnati Airport experiencing supposedly only light rain while the same source says precipitation is at 100%, with thunderstorms, it’s a little hard to determine who to trust and when, and this makes it hard to figure out if the storm is dying down or if reports are blowing things out of proportion at the current time.
