Dry to start the day but there will be pop-up storms with the heating of the afternoon and an approaching front from the northwest. Highs will be near 80.
A slow moving cold front will once again trigger showers and thunderstorms in the Tri-State today. We'll see slight rain chances just prior to noon mainly north of Cincinnati. After 1 p.m., isolated showers and storms will develop in the heat of the day. With time, rain turns more scattered throughout the entire Tri-State. So if you are wanting to get the lawn mowed today, let me highly recommend getting outside before lunch! Temperatures will end up in upper 70s again today.
We are under a "slight risk" of severe storms again today according to the Storm Prediction Center. This time, the threat for a tornado is not as high. This means that damaging wind gusts and large hail are the main concerns with our stronger storms today. That best window is between 3 to 8 p.m.
We'll only see slight rain chances on Wednesday as the best chance for storms start to shift into central Kentucky. But for our northern Kentucky communities, I would not rule out some late day showers and storms. Highs tomorrow at 80.
I know you are looking ahead to the weekend, so here's what I see now. We only have slight rain chances on Friday (20% chance) so it looks like a better bet for fireworks Friday evening. The chance for rain increases on Saturday to 40%. while this day won't be a washout, scattered afternoon showers and storms will be possible with some continuing into the evening hours. This is still a few days out so keep checking back for new updates and more specific details!
