Showers & storms expected today

Heavy rain, storms, cooler temps for the weekend

Showers and thunderstorms are likely today as an area of low pressure pulls a warm front towards the Ohio River from the Southeast. Rain could be heavy at times, especially from noon into the afternoon. Thunderstorms are also possible. Temperatures will hold into the 40s this morning, climbing into the low to mid-50s this afternoon.

Of course, this is not good news for those of you heading to Great American Ball Park today. First pitch for the Reds against the Cubs is set for 1:10 pm, and it looks like rain is a good bet at that point. I would suggest rain gear if you're going, and prepare for the possibility of delays today as rounds of showers and thunderstorms will likely roll through the city at some point during the game.

Showers & storms possible during the game

This system will roll through during the late afternoon and evening, and as low pressure moves just to our southwest, there is a chance for it to bring stronger storms. The best risk is over western Kentucky, but the SPC does have our southwest counties in northern Kentucky under a slight risk for stronger storms later today. We'll keep you posted!

Strong storms possible late today in NKY

Sunday, expect a few showers early in the morning, but as future clouds and radar shows below, we'll see sunshine return by the early afternoon. Temperatures tomorrow will climb into the low 60s. Warmer weather is expected next week, along with a period of dry and sunny weather!
