CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Warm air will continue to dominate the weather Friday through the weekend with highs in the 80s.

We’ll top out at 84 for Friday along with light southeasterly winds and mostly sunny skies - which will be great for any events going on to start the weekend!

It will be noticeably more humid not only Friday, but also Saturday as rain chances increase. Showers and storms look to be widely scattered between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, though much of the FOX19 viewing area will be dry in this time. If you see any storms, they will be within 30 minutes and bring a quick downpour, gusty winds and perhaps some small hail at best. Saturday evening should be dry for concerts or other outdoor events in the tri-state.

Sunday will be mainly dry, with highs in the mid 80s along with mostly sunny skies for much of the area, however - areas to the east of Cincinnati could have some isolated showers and storms with partly cloudy conditions.

We’re keeping an eye on Sunday night into Monday morning as a front will pass through the tri-state. We’ve issued a First Alert Weather Day for very early Monday morning with the threat for a few strong storms that could contain some gusty winds, small hail and downpours that may disrupt the morning commute. We’ll keep you posted on the FOX19 First Alert Weather app for updates on the storm risk.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler next week, though it will still be warm with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Monday afternoon through Tuesday will be dry before rain chances return late Tuesday through Thursday in the tri-state.

The extended outlooks from the Climate Prediction Center have the average temperature for the area warmer than normal through May 26th. So, if you have not begun to plant your favorite tender flowers, all systems are go.
