A nice warm-up is in store for us as temperatures rise above average average into the low 50s before cracking the 60s on Friday. However, this springlike weather comes with springlike storms that could turn severe.
Thursday will be quiet with simply increasing clouds ahead of a cold front that will trigger wet weather as soon as Friday evening. Until then, it's mostly cloudy skies at night through the day on Friday.
Rain eventually comes in later on Friday evening as spotty showers. But, it's just before midnight when heavy rain, along with stronger storms, sweep across the area into our very early Saturday morning. Our biggest threats are damaging winds and the potential for minor flooding. The Storm Prediction Center has placed us in a Marginal Risk for severe weather.
9 First Warning: The threat for strong to severe storms returns Friday night. Damaging winds and localized flooding will be the threats with this system. We'll have more as it gets closer! @wcpo #cincywx pic.twitter.com/1M7NYH5eOL— Jennifer Ketchmark (@KetchmarkWCPO) December 8, 2021
A few showers may persist on Saturday morning and the clouds hang around until the late afternoon. Clear skies are back at night and sunshine is around on Sunday. So, the Bengals game temps will be in the mid 40s.
