Storm rotation cannot be ruled out

More heavy rain and storms are on the way. Several more rounds of showers and storms are expected to move through the area tonight into Monday early afternoon.
An approaching cold front will bring the potential heavy rain after midnight. It's possible some of these storms become strong to severe. Rain will continue through the Monday morning commute. Because of this timing, there will be a WEATHER ALERT DAY beginning at 11pm Sunday night through 9 am Monday.


NOW until 3 AM- Most across the Tri-State have a few hour break from the rain. Heavy rain is still possible around Fayette, Union, Franklin, and Butler counties during this time. Rain will start spreading more southeast after about 2AM.

4:00 AM- Heavy rain spreads eastward and areas NW of Cincinnati will see rain and strong winds. A line of storms, potentially strong to severe, cannot be ruled out during this time frame. Expect the line of thunderstorms to move through the Greater Cincinnati area around 5-6 AM.

7:00 AM- Line of heavy rain/storms stretches from Owen county to Adams and Highland counties. The heaviest rain moves southeast, but showers persist for the Greater Cincinnati area through the morning commute.

9:00 AM- Widespread rain continues, heaviest rain continues to push southeast.
