Sunny days, cool nights to bring out fall colors

Today's high reached around 60 degrees. Meteorologist Simpson said it is the coolest day in the Southwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana region since early May.

Fog is expected Tuesday morning because of the recent rainfall, which was in the range of 2 to 4 inches. The morning will be very cool with the temperature dropping into the lower 40s.

The temperature will reach the mid-60s on Tuesday, and there will be sun and just a few clouds, Simpson said.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny and temperatures will climb up to around 70 degrees, though the low will be about 44 degrees.

Thursday will be sunny with high clouds from a system that will pass by to the region's southwest. The high is expected to reach 72 degrees.

Friday may have no clouds at all. The high is 74 degrees.

Saturday will have increasing clouds, but the sun will be out. The high is 75 degrees.

There may be rain showers toward the end of the day on Sunday.

"The sunny days and cool nights are prefect to bring more color out in the trees this week. While we are most likely 2 weeks from peak, I think by this weekend we'll see a lot more than we have now," Simpson said.
