Active weather in area this weekend

There is a lot going on in the Ohio Valley over the next three days, so here’s what you need to know about rain and when it will have the biggest impact on outdoor plans.

FRIDAY — Clouds are going to be a huge feature again today. And at times, you’ll see a few sprinkles. But in general, the majority of today’s forecast is dry. We’ll warm to 65 this afternoon. Rain will start to move in later this afternoon and definitely this evening. This should be a spotty, light rainfall. Thunderstorms are not expected. Between kids going to prom or just people going out this evening, keep rain in mind!

SATURDAY — This is the day where we have the best chance for rain over the weekend but it’s not a wash out nor a guaranteed chance of precipitation for all towns.

Isolated showers will be on the radar Saturday morning for the Toyota 10K and the start of the Family Fun Festival. But it won’t last long. Very little rain is expected between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. outside of a stray shower. Temperatures will be warmer in the low 70s with a cloudy sky.

Scattered showers and storms will develop Saturday evening and this will be the highest chance of rain and a low end severe weather chance for our western locations. But again, it’s not guaranteed to rain everywhere.

SUNDAY — This is obviously a huge day in the area with the Flying Pig Marathon starting in the early morning hours. There is greater confidence in the forecast that rain will not be an issue and exiting the Ohio Valley as we start the day. Temperatures will be in the low 60s with a mostly cloudy sky as the marathon begins. Clouds will slowly decrease during the day, turning partly cloudy. Temperatures will warm to 74. Sunday holds the lowest chance of rain for the whole weekend!
