We've been tracking a strong cold front responsible for producing heavy snow and ice through the Plains and part of the upper Midwest.
As the cold front slowly drifts across the Ohio Valley, it will lose strength, but we'll still get a decent dose of rain as it passes. Expect up to an inch of rain by Sunday.
Skies will be cloudy overnight, with periods of rain and a low of 49.
Saturday is our wettest time period, so you'll likely need the umbrellas and rain gear much of the day. Forecast models are showing a reduction in rainfall by late Saturday as the front passes.
We'll keep rain in the forecast Sunday, with the morning hours being the best chance. Bengals fans, tailgating could see a few showers, but it will clear out during the afternoon with temperatures in the upper 40s and bottoming out around 39.
As the front stalls south of the Ohio River, we'll keep a chance of rain in the forecast Monday. The next rainmaker will be tuning up over the Plains.
The attending cold front will sweep across the Tri-State Tuesday with our next chance of rain. That system will usher in colder air and tumble into the mid 40s Wednesday.
