Steady rain will redevelop during the evening everywhere as the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon approach. Winds will also be increasing during this time frame. Sustained winds of 10 to 20 mph with some higher gusts are possible.
“After midnight (today) and through Sunday, steady, heavy at times rain will occur throughout the Miami Valley,” Vrydaghs said. “Ponding on the road and poor visibility with pockets of heavy rain are to be expected. We may see the end to the rain late Sunday into Monday.”

Several events and festivals this weekend are facing the possibility of dealing with the heavy rain that is being predicted. Middletown Health Commissioner, Jackie Phillips, said the Middletown Arts Festival will be postponed until next weekend.
“In the interest of safety the hard decision was made (Friday) morning that we will postpone our festival until Sunday, Sept. 16, same times,” she said.
