CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - While a few showers can't be ruled out, most of Friday will be pleasant with partly to mostly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the mid-70s.
Things will go downhill quickly as evening arrives.
Scattered storms will push into our western counties anytime after 4 p.m. The worst is expected after 6 p.m.
Several rounds of storms are possible for some areas as the system moves west to east across the Tri-State.
The primary threats will be lightning and heavy rain.
Most of the storms will not be severe, but some could produce high, damaging winds and large hail.
A weak tornado or two cannot be ruled out due to the amount of wind shear in the atmosphere.
The storms and severe threat are expected to end in our eastern counties about midnight.
Occasional light showers will continue for the rest of the night Friday.
More widespread rain is expected early Saturday.
Staying in Friday evening is your best bet.
