CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Friday is a First Alert Weather Day with heavy downpours expected for the morning commute.

Thunderstorms could produce heavy rainfall that may result in localized flooding. This will disrupt travel Friday midday and afternoon with ponding on roads, reduced visibility at times and even localized flooding.

Parts of the region are under a Flood Watch until 8 p.m. Friday.

Widespread scattered showers and thunderstorms will persist Friday afternoon and evening with heavy downpours and some cloud-to-ground lightning at times.

The rain and storms taper off around sunset. Because of the rain-cooled air and cloud coverage, highs will only reach the low 80s.

Isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms develop Friday night into Saturday morning.

Saturday will have isolated scattered showers and possible storms early becoming widespread during the afternoon. Humid conditions linger through the weekend with highs in the mid-80s.

Sunday will be mainly dry with a mix of sun and clouds with isolated showers and thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and highs will be a little warmer thanks to the drier air.
