Weather Alert Day: Rain, thunderstorms and potential flooding this weekend

A chance of severe weather too

9 On Your Side has declared Saturday through Sunday a Weather Alert Day due to heavy rain and major flooding in parts of our communities.

A Flood Watch is also in effect and continues for all Tri-State counties through Sunday at 10 a.m. 

The Ohio River is still rising to 59.5 feet by Tuesday morning, bringing some of the worst flooding since 1997. Here's the link for the Ohio River gauge. Also, the Great Miami River at Miamitown is under a Flood Warning.

While we will see scattered rain at times overnight, heavy rain will come in for the morning and last throughout the day.  Temperatures will stay mild in the upper 40s for the morning.


Our weekend begins with rain, but will end with sunshine. Off and on rain will be heavy at times through the day before a wave of torrential rain hits during the evening into early on Sunday. 

When this cold front hits, we will likely see thunderstorms and it's possible isolated storms could turn severe. Additionally, we are likely to see flooded streets and ponding of roads because of the intense rain late on Saturday night. Temperatures will be mild in the upper 50s before cold air seeps into the tri-State for Sunday. 

While we'll likely start Sunday morning with some rain, rapid clearing will allow some sunshine back int he picture. Highs reach into the low 50s. 

Next week, a couple of days of sunshine will give the soggy ground a chance to dry up a bit.
