Early Mix, Then Steady Rain, & Flooding Concerns

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Wednesday is a First Alert Weather Day.

There is A Winter Weather Advisory and Flood Watch remains in effect for the Tri-State through the morning.

A mix of freezing rain, rain, and ice remains a concern early in the morning with slushy, icy, and very wet roads.

As we approach the 5am and 6am hours, we are looking for mainly heavy to steady rain with plenty of standing water.

While most roads will be just wet during the commute, icy areas could persist in Fayette, Union, Franklin, Butler, Warren, Clinton and Highland counties.

Traffic will likely be slow. The story then transfers from slick or icy roads to flooding and high water concerns. Look for a daytime high of 47 degrees with rain continuing through the early overnight before tapering.

Then dry weather on Thursday and Friday with a partly cloudy sky both days and temperatures on the way up to the mid to upper 40’s. Rain returns on Friday night and Saturday with heavy rain at times and highs on Saturday of 59 degrees. We then dry out Sunday and the first part of next week.

Keep an eye on the Ohio River as we will reach above flood stage once again later next week.
