Rain returns to the area tonight. Shower and thunderstorm chances continue into Wednesday.


  • OVERNIGHT: Scattered showers return
  • WEDNESDAY AM: Isolated showers
  • WEDNESDAY 12PM-6PM: Scattered showers/thunderstorms

Wednesday's forecast brings another round of rain and storms as the cold front finally passes through the Ohio Valley. The best chance for storms on Wednesday will be between 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. This won't be the huge shield of rain that we saw on Tuesday but instead, a broken line of storms developing right over the area. A few cells could turn strong to severe with damaging wind gusts possible. The later it gets into the evening, the severe weather threat moves east of our area. Wednesday's high comes in around 69 degrees.

SPC now has northern portions of Fayette, Union, Butler, Warren, Clinton, and Highland counties under a SLIGHT risk for severe weather on Wednesday. Damaging winds are the main threat.
