CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Wednesday will be a First Alert Weather Day in the Tri-State thanks to storms with heavy rain and winds.

Heavy rain could begin between overnight Tuesday and 4 a.m. Wednesday, according to FOX19 Meteorologist Ashley Smith.

Several rounds of heavy rain are likely Wednesday morning through the evening, and both commutes will be impacted.

Power outages are possible due to soggy ground and winds that will gust as high as 40mph.

Tree damage is also possible, and it’s possible your Christmas decorations could end up in your neighbor’s yard or further asunder.

Rain totals could be as high as two inches in some spots. Most areas will see 1-1.5″.

The rain will end by noon Thursday.

Cooler air will arrive this weekend with highs in the mid-30s.
