FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good Monday evening,

Showers and storms are working across our area, with storms continuing to move southeast. The strongest storms are near the Cincinnati metro, and the storms are weakening up the line. These storms may have some gusty winds in the southwest part of the state, and generally just rain and some lightning north.

It is possible we could see some breezy storms closer to I-70 as the rain moves through our area. The line should continue to weaken as it moves across the state and fall apart as it crosses the Ohio River. I expect the main threat will remain being strong gusty winds.

After the showers and storms fall apart, we will be mostly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s to near 70. This week will continue to see showers and thunderstorms on and off as a weak frontal boundary will lay across the area for much of the week. Eventually a warm front will kick north, but not far north, before a cold front slides through by early next week.

Ahead of the eventual cold front, just about every afternoon to early evening with have a chance of thunderstorms and a few showers as well. High temps will generally stay in the upper 80s through the work week. By the weekend, rain chances will go up a bit, and temps will fall a degree or two to the middle 80s.

By next Sunday night and into Monday morning a cold front will work through bringing early morning showers on Monday, and then high pressure will work in bringing in drier air next week.
