Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A warm front will be the focal point for scattered showers late tonight and tomorrow. Temps will be cooler tomorrow as clouds and showers hang on. There will be a short break midday before another round develops late day. Tomorrow night a disturbance will ride along the front bringing heavy rainfall overnight tomorrow night and early Thursday. Some thunderstorms will accompany this disturbance as well. Minor flooding may occur with the heavier showers and storms. Thursday lighter showers will rule before a strong cold front approaches the area late Thursday night and early Friday. This front will bring the next batch of heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms. There is the potential for some damaging winds with these showers and storms late Thursday night and early Friday, however with the early nature of this front severe weather will be limited due to the lack of diurnal heating.
Cooler air moves in behind this front over the weekend before another stronger system with heavy rainfall and wind moves in early next week. There is the potential for flooding with this system as well and very chilly air to accompany this system on the back side.
