CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A cold front is bringing showers and storms through the Ohio Valley, delivering strong wind gusts through the afternoon. The severe threat has diminished significantly due to drier air moving into the tri-state ahead of the line of showers and storms.

Wind gusts, even outside of storms, could exceed 40 mph Thursday afternoon which could cause tree damage and power outages in the region.

Friday and Saturday will be dry with mostly cloudy skies but Sunday could bring some accumulating snow during the morning changing over to rain during the day. Sunday will also be a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY as it will be disruptive for morning and midday travel in the tri-state.

Early next week will be cloudy and dry with lows in the 20s and highs in the 40s, though we are monitoring another system that may bring rain and snow in the middle and latter half of next week.
