Dry and mild conditions roll into Wednesday

Rain and storms return Thursday

A weak cold front washed out south of the Ohio Valley, making room for clear skies tonight. 

With the absence of cloud cover, temperatures will quickly fall and bottom out at about 38 degrees in Cincinnati. Outlying areas will see slightly cooler temperatures.

Gusty northwest winds will relax and become southerly by daybreak Wednesday. Expect another gorgeous day with highs in the mid 60s.

Our next rainmaker arrives during the day Thursday with a slight chance of showers prior to noon. 

This cold front will produce more widespread showers and thunderstorms during the evening commute. There is a moderate risk of a storm becoming severe with gusty winds to 58 mph and large hail of at least 1 inch in diameter.

Temperatures ahead of the front will top out in the lower 70s. Right now rainfall totals upwards of 1 inch can be expected. Rain will linger into Friday morning and gradual clearing will set in later afternoon. 

The Easter holiday weekend is looking sunny and dry. Temperatures will round out in the lower 50s Saturday to near 60 Sunday. Easter sunrise is around 7:22 a.m.

OPENING DAY: We are keeping a close eye on the Opening Day forecast already. Right now skies will be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers.
