CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - While things are chilly for now, a big time warm up is on our way.
A warm front arriving Thursday night could bring us some isolated rain showers, but quite a few people in the Tri-State will stay dry. The big highlight from this front will be the temperature change. High temperatures will jump from the mid 50s on Thursday to the upper 60s on Friday.
The first part of Saturday is looking nice. Partly cloudy skies will become mostly cloudy, but high temperatures will reach the low 70s. This will be the best part of the weekend for outdoor activities. By late afternoon, showers and storms will begin to pop up. These will become widespread during the later evening and overnight hours.
Temperatures will only dip a little on Sunday, but it's unlikely we'll see much sun. While the heaviest rain will likely be over, scattered rain showers with an occasional rumble of thunder look like a good bet throughout the day and at least through the early evening hours.
The rainy stretch looks to continue into next week as well. The powerful low pressure system and associated cold front responsible for this stormy weather look to finely arrive in our area on Monday and could bring us our heaviest rain yet. Light showers may linger through the day Tuesday before the rain finally ends.
Due to multiple rounds of moderate to heavy rain over a short period of time, isolated flash flooding is possible. For now, the severe threat looks minimal for the Cincinnati area, but this system will have to be watched closely.
