***AIR QUALITY ADVISORY IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING FOR HAMILTON, BUTLER, WARREN, CLERMONT, BOONE, KENTON, AND CAMPBELL COUNTY***
This Evening: Mostly clear. Temperatures falling through the 80s and 70s.

Good afternoon! As expected, it shaped up to be another sunshine-filled day in the Tri-State. Late this afternoon, temperatures have climbed into the middle and upper 80s with a bit more humidity than yesterday. If you are heading out this evening, expect skies to become mostly clear as temperatures fall into the 70s. But late tonight, clouds will begin to increase ahead of our next weather maker which is a cold front and area of low pressure which will slide in from the west. This could bring some scattered showers and thunderstorms back into the area as early as the predawn hours Thursday. As this front and area of low pressure work across our region Thursday, we will see occasional showers and thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center has placed our entire area in a "Marginal" risk of severe weather which is a lower risk than earlier today. This means a storm or two could potentially become strong or severe on Thursday with the primary threat being damaging winds. But hail and some heavy rain are also possible and we will need to watch for the possibility of localized flooding on Thursday. Before this system moves out Thursday evening, some parts of the Tri-State could pick up another inch or two of rainfall. Behind the cold front on Friday, we will see a weak upper impulse moving through that will keep the chance for a few scattered showers going. Cooler and less humid air will arrive for the upcoming weekend! Please join Meteorologist Erica Collura for Local 12 News First at Four and again at 5:30 for more on our Thursday rain and storms and for a look ahead to the weekend. Have a great evening!
