Threat of severe thunderstorm for the afternoon

Stay up to date with the weather if you have outdoor plans today. We start quietly but that changes for the afternoon. FOLLOW LIVE RADAR // ALERTS Warm weather today with highs in the upper 80s. We will see sweltering sunshine for the first part of the day, but this will eventually lead to the development of many scattered thunderstorms. These early storms begin around 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. today, primarily west of Cincinnati and the Ohio state line. They become more numerous during the afternoon and will begin to move eastward. Some storms are likely to be severe, especially along and northwest of I-71. Expect lots of lightning, heavy rain, gusty winds and hail. The tornado threat is low, but not zero. The serious threat ends at 8 p.m. tonight. A threat of rain will persist until noon tomorrow at the latest before it becomes drier and cooler. It will be cooler on Sunday with highs around 70 and will come in tandem with lower humidity. Our stormy pattern continues into next week as well. We are comfortably dry Monday and Tuesday, but it ends Wednesday with rain and thunderstorms. A thunderstorm watch, which may be in effect for several hours, means that weather conditions exist where severe thunderstorms can easily develop. A thunderstorm warning means the current storm conditions may worsen, including heavy rain and strong winds.
