CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Strong winds make Friday a First Alert Weather Day... but only for the morning.

A cold front will drive temperatures down into the low 30s by Friday morning. There is a chance for a wintry mix of rain and snow during the morning commute.

Wind gusts could exceed 40 mph, bringing the threat of tree damage and power outages.

The FAWD will expire at 10 a.m. Friday.

The low is expected to dip to 33, just above freezing at CVG, by daybreak.

The high Friday afternoon will only reach the mid-30s.

The overnight low will fall into the upper 20s.

Saturday, however, will wind up being the best weather day of the weekend.

Expect lots of sunshine with a high of around 41.

Temperatures will fall back into the upper 20s by dawn Sunday.

Another wintry mix is possible in the morning with some snow accumulation possible before it switches back to rain in the afternoon.

Sunday will be a chilly and blustery day. The high will struggle to reach the upper 30s.
