We're starting out with a comfortable morning across the Tri-State. Temperatures are in the mid to upper 40s with clear skies as far as the eye can see. Breezy conditions are picking up from the south southwest around 5-10 mph. Winds will become stronger through the morning into the afternoon. Speeds could reach 20-25 MPH later today.
Expect afternoon highs to reach the low to mid 70s under partly sunny skies. Increasing clouds are to be expected later this afternoon. We're tracking a cold front from the west that has the potential of bringing us heavy rainfall and some rumbles of thunder late afternoon into the overnight hours. Keep the rain gear handy starting around 4:00 PM; scattered showers are expected to develop in our far western communities and gradually push to the east.
By the time you wake up Wednesday morning the system should be east of the Tri-State. We could receive anywhere from .25"-1" of rainfall by tomorrow morning, with the most expected to drop south of the Ohio River. Temperatures won't really be hit by the cold front until Wednesday afternoon when we only reach the low 50s under mostly cloudy skies.
