Tornado Watch until 2AM for the entire FOX19 NOW viewing area

Severe storms on the way

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Storm Prediction Center has issued a TORNADO WATCH until 2AM for all counties in the FOX19 NOW viewing area.

Severe thunderstorms could cause a few tornadoes and many areas will receive damaging winds and large hail along with torrential downpours and dangerous lightning.

Behind the cold front bringing the severe weather cooler air will arrive for an extended stay in the FOX19 NOW viewing area for the second half of the week and a good portion of the next 14 days.

That front will spawn severe thunderstorms this evening into the early hours of Thursday with the main threat being large hail, damaging winds and the outside chance of a weak, short-track tornado.

The FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY continues for strong to severe storms this evening and early overnight as a front moves through the area.
