'Cool' summer really average, forecasters say

        With only one day topping 90 degrees this season, Greater Cincinnatians may think we're having a chilly summer.

        We're not, according to meteorologists.

        Though in an average summer Tristate thermometers rise above 90 for four days in June, eight in July and six in August, it's still a pretty usual summer, said Myron Padgett, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

        “It's been cooler, but we've had other summers like this,” Mr. Padgett said.

        Still, area residents are enjoying a break from intense heat.

        When temperatures rise, “It's too hot to take kids to the park, it's too hot to go to King's Island,” said Tiffany Bowen of Avondale.

        Wayne Wheeler of Miami Township said that Saturday was a perfect day.

        “This is the way summer should be,” he said.

        With blue skies, low humidity and not-too-high temperatures Saturday, some Cincinnatians expressed hope that the good weather will last “from now until October,” said Michael Evans, a downtown resident.
