Northern Kentucky

Northern Kentucky is the third-largest metropolitan region in the United States state of Kentucky, behind Louisville and Lexington. The municipalities that makeup Northern Kentucky are considered to be the “south side” communities of Cincinnati, which is located in Ohio. Boone, Kenton, and Campbell Counties are the most populous counties in this metropolitan region, and they are located along the Ohio River (where they are depicted in red on the map). Other counties are also included.

The term “Northern Kentucky” (abbreviated NKY) is used to highlight the similar identity shared by citizens of these northern counties even if they may live in different cities or counties. This identity transcends municipal boundaries. It might be argued that the label is an attempt to undo the subdivisions that took place inside Campbell County, which, back in 1794, encompassed parts of Boone, Kenton, and Pendleton Counties, as well as the greater part of Bracken and Grant Counties.

There is a high concentration of people in the urban and suburban areas of the northern counties. In point of fact, out of Greater Cincinnati’s more than two million citizens, 450,994 call Northern Kentucky home (as of 2019), with the three most northern counties alone providing 394,163 people. The most populous urban areas Covington, Florence, and Fort Thomas can be found in each of the three counties that are the most northerly.

On the 17th of July, 2019, Mr. Brent Cooper, a member of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, called for the community of Northern Kentucky to consider consolidating the three counties (Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties) into a single county in order to better reflect the region’s shared identity, strengthen the region’s political voice, and increase its economic marketability.

Gallatin County, Grant County, Pendleton County, and Bracken County are some examples of other, more rural counties that are typically included in more comprehensive or regional definitions of Northern Kentucky (shown in pink on the map). Traditionally, the broader, regional meaning of “Northern Kentucky” has also included the counties of Trimble, Mason, and Lewis. These counties are all located in Northern Kentucky.

Northern Kentucky Climate

The climate of Northern Kentucky is classified as humid subtropical and its latitude is the northernmost extent of this climate type. Northern Kentucky is located in a climate transition zone. It is possible to find evidence of both a humid subtropical climate and a humid continental climate in this area. This is particularly obvious by the presence of plants that are characteristic of each climate region.

For instance, the southern magnolia and crape-myrtle, both of which are native to the subtropics, and the blue spruce, maple, and eastern hemlock, all of which are native to cooler climes, are all successful landscaping plants in and around Northern Kentucky. The Ohio River, the region’s comparatively extensive hills and valleys, and an urban heat influence due to the region’s closeness to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky metropolitan area are some of the important moderating characteristics that contribute to Northern Kentucky’s general climate.

The common wall lizard, which was brought over from Italy in the 1950s, is one example of the local fauna that contributes to the subtropical atmosphere that can be seen in locations close to the city center of Cincinnati. It is generally agreed that Northern Kentucky is located on the outskirts of both the Midwestern United States and the Upland South.
