CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Thunderstorms with intense downpours that could cause flooding means Wednesday a FOX19 NOW First Alert Weather Day.

The storms are not expected to be severe, but a Flood Watch is up for most of the Tri-State until 8 p.m.

Heavy downpours will occur in any shower or thunderstorm that develops in the afternoon and early evening in the Tri-State.

Areas of ponding on roadways as well as localized flooding will be something the First Alert Weather Team will be monitoring until the Flood Watch expires. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies with highs in the lower 80s with humid conditions.

Beginning Wednesday night, cooler Canadian air will bring more comfortable conditions to the FOX19 NOW viewing area.

It’s a welcome change that will keep temperatures a bit cooler than normal into the last week of August.
