The Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky metropolitan area is located within a climatic transition zone. The southern area of the region, from roughly about the Ohio River, is at the extreme northern limit of the [[humid subtropical climate]]; the north part of the region is on the extreme southern cusp of the [[humid continental climate]]. Evidence of both humid subtropical climate and humid continental climate can be found here, particularly noticeable by the presence of plants indicative of each climatic region; for example, the [[Southern magnolia]], [[Crape-myrtle]], [[Aucuba]], and [[Needle palm]] from the subtropics and the [[Blue spruce]], [[Maple]], and [[Eastern Hemlock]] from cooler regions. Within the area, the USDA climate zone rating can vary from as warm as zone 7 and 6b [http://www.ahs.org/pdfs/USDA_Map_3.03.pdf] to as cool as zone 5b [http://www.usna.usda.gov/Hardzone/ushzmap.html], with the warmest areas tending to be found closest to the [[Ohio River]]; individual [[microclimate]]s of even cooler and warmer temperature may occur in the area but are too small to be considered in the overall climate zone rating. The [[common wall lizard]], introduced from Italy in the 1950s, is an example of fauna in the area that lends a subtropical ambiance to the southern and central area of the region.

Traveling through the region from North to South, a subtle but interesting change in climate can be observed and is most evidenced by the gradual increase in the occurrence of subtropical indicator plants in the landscape (most noticeable are the Southern Magnolia and [[Mimosa]] trees, the [[needle palm]] also may be found as a winter hardy landscape specimen in yards near the Ohio River). Also, in the winter there is usually a significant difference in snowfall/ice/rain in the region going from north to south.

Although widely accepted as part of the [[Midwest]], the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky metropolitan area is climatically and geographically located on the northern periphery of the [[Upland South]] region of the United States and is within the [[Bluegrass region]] of Ohio and Kentucky.
The area is vulnerable to occasional severe weather - thunderstorms, large hail and sometimes tornadoes.

The Cincinnati, OH-KY-IN MSA was originally formed by the [[United States Census Bureau]] in 1950 and consisted of the Kentucky counties of [[Campbell County, Kentucky|Campbell]] and [[Kenton County, Kentucky|Kenton]] and the Ohio county of [[Hamilton County, Ohio|Hamilton]]. As surrounding counties saw an increase in their population densities and the number of their residents employed within Hamilton County, they met Census criteria to be added to the MSA. The Hamilton-Middletown, OH MSA was also formed in 1950 and consisted solely of [[Butler County, Ohio]].

In 1990, the Census changed designation of the areas known as MSAs to Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area (PMSA), and a new Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area (CMSA) grouping was created. From 1990 through 2005, the Cincinnati-Hamilton-Middletown CMSA included the Cincinnati-Hamilton, OH-KY-IN PMSA and the Hamilton-Middletown, OH PMSA.

As of December 2005, Census terminology changed again, eliminating the PMSA/CMSA terminology. Consolidated Statistical Areas (CSA) combine more than one Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA). Newly defined MSAs (Metropolitan) and µSAs (Micropolitan) Statistical Areas are CBSAs. The Cincinnati-Middletown-Wilmington CSA includes the Cincinnati-Middletown MSA (defined as the old Cincinnati-Hamilton-Middletown CMSA), and Wilmington, OH USA ([[Clinton County, Ohio]]).

==Population Growth==
The metropolitan area's population has grown 8.1 percent between Census 2000 and the 2009 Census population estimate, just under the national population growth rate of 9.2 percent over the same period. This growth rate is about in the middle of the growth rates of other similarly sized mid western metropolitan areas. For example, the Cleveland metropolitan area lost approximately 2% of population, while Louisville gained 8%, Columbus gained 12%, and Indianapolis gained 14% over the same time period.

The 2009 population estimate from the US Census classifies population changes between natural population increases (number of births minus number of deaths) and net migration (the difference between people moving into the region minus those moving out of the region). Natural population increase contributes fundamentally all of Greater Cincinnati's population growth. A small amount of net international migration to the region is offset by a small amount of net domestic migration out of the region.<ref name="census.gov">[http://www.census.gov/popest/metro/metro.html Population Estimates]{{dead link|date=May 2012}}</ref>

The Cincinnati-Middletown Metropolitan Statistical Area (the "MSA"), which includes seven counties in Northern Kentucky and three in Southeast Indiana, is considered the largest metropolitan area that includes parts of Ohio, exceeding the population of Greater Cleveland.
