Heavy rain is done, but the Ohio River will need to be watched closely the next 24-48 hours. The river hit the "action" stage this afternoon. Parts of Coney Island will see flooding.

A cold front will swing down from the northwest tonight, and will impact our weather here in the Tri-State. Winds will increase tonight as the front approaches. Sustained winds of 20-25 mph will be possible as we near early Saturday morning. Most snow accumulation will remain north of the Tri-State area, however there is the potential for a dusting of snow for some of our northern counties overnight.

Tonight is chilly, a low of 26 overnight.

Saturday is mostly sunny and chilly with a high of 33.

And Sunday is drastically different with highs climbing quickly into the mid 50s. It will be a gorgeous day to get outside and that spring-like feeling.

Here's your 9 First Warning that next week is going to be active! Another round of rain and potential thunderstorms will come in on Tuesday with highs in the mid 60s. And then we have to watch Thursday closely. For days now, the models have been showing a wintry mix falling throughout the day. This could include freezing rain and sleet for us again!
