It is a STORM TEAM 4 Weather Alert Day. Strong to severe storms are possible this afternoon and evening.

Rain has been making its way towards the Ohio Valley all night. Moisture from the Gulf is traveling right up the Mississippi Valley. Light to moderate showers with a few rumbles of thunder are possible this morning. Most of the state is under a MARGINAL RISK for a few late afternoon and evening storms producing heavy downpours and gusty winds with isolated hail. Today’s high will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Tonight the heaviest rain will be in southern Ohio. We may receive between a half and three quarters of an inch and an equal amount during the day tomorrow. The rain finally moves out of the Buckeye State Friday. Tonight’s low will be in the low 60s. Tomorrow’s high will be in the low 70s.

There will only be a slight chance of any showers Friday. It will be cooler behind the departed rainy system. Friday’s high will be near 60.

The weather will dry out just and begin to warm-up just in time for the weekend. With sunshine for the first day of May, Saturday will be in the mid-60s. Sunday’s high will be back into the mid-70s.

Happy Hump Day All!
