TODAY: I am expecting rain and possibly a couple rumbles of thunder to be around through the first half of the day, ending west to east by 2-3 PM. We may salvage a decent afternoon areawide. As of 6:20 AM, radar shows that a slug of moderate to heavy rain covers much of the area west of I-75; this will progress across our area in the next 6-8 hours. I anticipate a high today around 63. Tonight, it’ll be dry, and will feel spring-like with a low down to 52…and yes, that’s spring-like in Cincinnati for January 11th!
THIS WEEKEND AND MONDAY: Another front crashes in this weekend with a continuing chance of rain. Tomorrow morning may be a dry one, but I look for the rain chances to ramp up again beginning late tomorrow afternoon and continuing through the rest of the weekend. There may be periods of locally heavy rainfall especially tomorrow night and Sunday. The QPF in the latest models in the 48 hour period through 7 PM Monday suggest anywhere from 1.5″ to as much as 3″ of rainfall. Flash flood guidance currently is 2 to 4″ in 24 hours, so while flash flooding isn’t currently expected, the small streams may be worth monitoring for a bit of a rise from Saturday night through Monday. There might even be some thunder around again! I am going with a high around 64 Saturday, but if we hold the rain off a bit more, I could see the southern part of our area (from Carrollton over to Maysville and Mt Olivet) pushing closer to 68. Sunday will see a cool down with a high back into the lower 50’s. Finally, the rain exits by Monday evening, but not before possibly mixing in some snow showers Sunday night into Monday. Highs on Monday will be near 40. So, plan some indoor activities this weekend! (If you’re into cars, then the Cavalcade of Customs is a good option for you — that’s where I’ll be hanging out this evening for some “me time”.)
TUESDAY: A little disturbance pushes through, so we’ll include a chance of snow showers with a high around 39.
WEDNESDAY: We finally get all precipitation out of here, but it remains with highs to only 38 and lows near 26.
THURSDAY: Another dry, but cold day…highs will be close to 40 with lows near 25.
