A decaying batch of showers west of Ohio has caused some extra clouds to spill into the region today. A few light patchy areas of rain may make their way into the Cincinnati area this evening. If you plan on being out, taking a rain jacket or umbrella may not be a bad idea but do not expect a very wet evening. It is turning more humid and temperatures will be slightly warmer in the 80s and upper 70s.
Hot sunshine will help boost temperatures up to near 90 degrees on Sunday afternoon ahead of a building line of storms to our northwest. The combination of instability and modest wind shear in the atmosphere will bring a severe weather threat to the region. The biggest risks will be damaging winds and scattered large hail. Torrential rainfall and frequent lightning will be likely in nearly all of the storms. While pop showers are possible all the day, the most likely time for severe weather will be between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
A line of storms is expected to develop northwest of Cincinnati tonight and the remnant clouds and a few light showers may make their way into the region early Sunday morning. If these clouds stick around longer than forecast, the highest severe threat may be focused south of the immediate Cincinnati area where more sunshine would be present.

With the front still nearby on Monday, a few scattered thunderstorms will be possible still. However the highest severe threat will more than likely remain south of the Tri-State region on Monday. Highs will be cooler in the lower to middle 80s.
A very unseasonably cool air mass will move into the Ohio Valley for the middle of next week as a strong upper low and eventually Canadian high pressure both settle into our area. Highs may only be in the lower to middle 70s with lows possibly down to 50 degrees! It will be a delightful spell of weather especially considering this coming week is one of the hottest weeks of the year on average.
