CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The first half Wednesday is going to be remarkably nice for this time of year with partly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the mid-70s.
It will all change late this afternoon.
We've declared Wednesday a First Alert Weather Day.
This is to bring your attention to disruptive weather and encourage you to closely monitor the weather conditions. The worst is expected between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected to begin moving into our viewing area from the southwest anytime after 4 p.m.
Some of these storms are expected to be rotating supercells due to high wind shear in the atmosphere.
Supercells are capable of producing large hail, damaging wind gusts, and tornadoes.
Several rounds of storms will work over the area from southwest to northeast until 11 p.m.
The scattered nature of these storms will make it possible that a few could miss out on the rain or only see light amounts. Several will see heavy rain and lightning, though.
There is a good chance severe thunderstorm warnings for hail over 1 inch in diameter and damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 mph will be issued for parts of the Tri-State.
Isolated tornadoes also are possible in the strongest storms.
