A warm and muggy day on Thursday, but a change in our weather arrives soon! A cold front will slowly move into the Ohio Valley and this brings a guaranteed chance for rain on Friday. This same front also ensures we'll cool down significantly.
Friday morning should be dry but rain will be coming in from the west and spreading east across the area. Spotty rain will come into our Indiana counties and those west of I-71 before the noon hour. Then, scattered showers and isolated storms will be on the radar for the rest of the afternoon and evening.
NEW: Storms will return on Friday and a few strong to severe storms are possible. The SPC has increased our severe weather risk to "slight" meaning damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes are possible. @wcpo #cincywx pic.twitter.com/ZSiN0UE1lK

We can't rule out an isolated strong to severe storm as well. Damaging wind gusts are the main concern at this point with those strongest storms. But the threat for large hail and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out either.
Much cooler air takes over this week. Saturday will be dry and mostly sunny with a high of 62. Sunday is sunny as well with a high of 65.
