Overnight Rain and Thunder

Cooler Air on the Way

Jeff's Saturday evening weather forecast

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -Showers are moving into the Tri-State as a warm front lifts north. Expect the rain to pick up this evening with a few thunderstorms possible as well.

The severe weather threat has been greatly reduced, but a stronger storm can’t be completely ruled out as a cold front pushes through.

Heavy rain and gusty wind will be the main threats overnight. The locally heavy rain over saturated soils may lead to some localized high water and flooding concerns.

In addition, wind gusts could be as high as 40 mph as the cold front works through the region.

A Wind Advisory will go into effect at 4am Sunday and extend until 10pm. Behind the cold front, winds will generally be in the 20-25mph range, but gusts could easily top out at 40-50mph.

The wet weather will move out of the by early Sunday afternoon, but colder air will be moving in.

By mid-day or so, many locations will have temperatures fall into the 30s. Windy conditions will linger as skies clear out.

High pressure will provide dry conditions to start the week.
