We have a chance for a few light showers into the overnight, but the heavier rain arrives Sunday morning. Tonight, cloudy. Low 51.

A warm front is lifting northward over the next 24 hours and will help produce widespread showers Sunday and a few isolated thunderstorms. Sunday morning looks to be the wettest time frame and is when we could see a storm or two on the stronger to severe side for our western Tri-State communities. There is a marginal risk out west of Cincinnati. Damaging wind gusts are the main threat. In addition, there could be some pockets of localized flooding where thunderstorms develop. Rainfall totals in the order of .25" to .75" is to be expected with isolated higher totals in thunderstorms.

Late Sunday night, a cold front will advance into the region and bring more rain our way Monday. Right now, the Monday morning commute looks wet. This front will also take a nice bite out of our temperatures. While we'll top out near 70 on Sunday, behind the front, temperatures fall into the lower and mid 50s Tuesday.

Rain chances return by the end of the week and into the Halloween weekend.
