Clouds are going to hold on tight today, so don't expect to see much sunshine. Instead, moisture is slowly building during the day as temperatures rise into the low 50s by 4 p.m.
Rain eventually moves in this evening. This is coming up from the southwest, which means rain chances being southwest of Cincinnati between 6-8 p.m., turning likely in the heart of the Tri-State from 7-10 p.m.
Until 4 p.m. - Staying dry, cloudy & warmer
4-8 p.m. - Showers begin southwest of Cincinnati, lifting into the metro
8 p.m. to Midnight - Rain turns widespread, heavy at times
Midnight to 6 a.m. - Rain likely
Rain is likely overnight and this rain could be heavy at times. We could see .75" to one inch of rainfall overnight. I would expect wet roads with some ponding in the overnight hours.
The morning drive on Friday will be rainy with plenty of water on the roads. This could slow down your drive to work. As the day progresses, isolated shower chances will continue during the day but it won't be a washout. Most of the day will be mostly cloudy and warm with highs in the upper 50s.
Saturday's forecast is a real treat from Mother Nature if you enjoy warmer weather. Despite mostly cloudy skies, temperatures will top out at 64 for a spring-like day. There's a slight chance for rain but chalk this forecast up as a good one to get outside.
Heavy at times
