Weaker storms to hang around Tri-State through midnight; tornado threat over
All thunderstorms will move east of the viewing area before midnight.

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The threat of tornadoes has ended in the FOX19 NOW viewing area and the remaining thunderstorms are weakening.

All thunderstorms will move east of the viewing area before midnight. Winds will continue on the gusty side until a couple hours after midnight, then they will settle down to breezy for a chilly morning commute.

Rainfall totaled more than 1 inch in many areas of the Tri-State so localized, short-term flooding will continue to be an issue for a couple hours after the rain ends in your neighborhood.

On Friday, isolated light showers will develop in the FOX19 NOW viewing area but all will be light and NOT contribute to additional flooding. You can track those showers with the FOX19 NOW weather app -- http://onelink.to/cxmvwv

Cool dry weather settles in for Saturday and Sunday and there will be plenty of sunshine for St. Patrick’s Day and for the MLS home opener of FC Cincinnati.
