It's a quiet night around the Tri-State before strong, gusty winds and thunderstorms roll through the area. We will generally have mostly clear conditions through the front half of Wednesday with increasing clouds in the afternoon. Plus, we'll get winds gusting to 40 mph, or perhaps, a bit more. A WIND ADVISORY is out for the entire area through Wednesday. Afternoon temps will be quite Spring-like.
Showers will return on Thursday with a strong cold front moving through the Ohio Valley. Temperatures will again be mild with highs in the low 60s. And it's another windy day gusting to 30 mph. This front will likely produce a few thunderstorms during the afternoon and early evening.
Some other concerns revolve around heavy rain producing minor flooding and thunderstorms that could produce damaging winds. We could see up to 1" of rain. As for severe weather, a marginal risk of severe weather has been placed over our southern counties on Thursday. This would cover the storms that pass in the later afternoon and evening hours. Damaging winds are the top concern at this point.
