CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A First Alert Weather Day is in effect from 4 p.m. Wednesday into Thursday morning.

Severe weather could bring damaging winds and heavy rain to the Tri-State.

A high wind warning is in effect. Winds are expected from the south at 20-35 mph with gusts as high as 60 mph, possibly bringing down trees and creating power outages.

Rain will arrive after 10 p.m. Wednesday. Rain will be heavy at times with lighting possible too.

An isolated cell could provide some damaging wind or reach severe limits, but this is a low risk.

Rain could start as early as 8 p.m. for parts of the Tri-State.

There also is an elevated fire danger due to these gusty winds and low relative humidity values.

“Conditions are favorable for rapid-fire growth. Outdoor burning is not recommended,” the National Weather Service in Wilmington advises in a Special Weather Statement.

A Red Flag Warning has been issued for much of the Tri-State until 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Rain will end early Thursday, but winds will remain high. Thursday temperatures will be steady in the mid-50s.

Friday will be mainly dry with a chance for light precipitation in the morning. Otherwise, it will be partly cloudy with a high near 50.

The weekend will be dry with highs in the mid-50s both Saturday and Sunday.

Warmer weather arrives next week with highs climbing into the 60s Tuesday. However, we will also see rain possible Tuesday and Wednesday.
