In the late afternoon Saturday, some showers will be possible as a warm front moves through. Temperatures will sit in the 60s and likely not drop much overnight. Temperatures, which should be in the upper 50s for this time of year, will be more than 10 degrees warmer than normal this weekend.

With a warm front to our north and a strong cold front to our west, winds from the southwest will push temperatures well into the 70s for Sunday.

Most of the afternoon on Sunday looks dry, but a strong cold front will approach Sunday night. The cold front looks to move in from the northwest to the southeast Sunday evening.

The timing of the front, combined with the warm, moist air and other favorable conditions, there will be a threat for thunderstorms into the night.

Areas northwest of Dayton have an "Enhanced Risk" for severe storms Sunday, with the rest of the Miami Valley under a "Slight Risk."

Your Storm Center 7 team predicts as the storms arrive across the northwest, there is a higher chance they will be strong. Damaging winds and flash flooding will be the main threats.

The timing and threats may change so stay with Storm Center 7 on-air, online and with our WHIO Weather App for the latest this weekend.
