After a lull in rain, showers will return in the evening — especially after 9 p.m. — and continue through the night. Overnight lows will be around 53 degrees.

Rain may linger early Wednesday, but will decrease before increasing again later in the morning. Thunder also is possible with the second round of showers.

There’s a chance for storms Wednesday afternoon and evening with the possibility that some storms could become strong to severe, according to NWS. The primary time for severe weather is from noon to 5 p.m.

“These storms will pose a damaging wind and large hail risk, and a tornado cannot be ruled out,” NWS reported.

The Dayton area has a slight risk for scattered severe storms, with southwest Ohio having the possibility of isolated severe storms.

The rain and storms will come with breezy winds and stronger gusts of 30 to 40 mph which will continue throughout the day and overnight.

The storms are expected to end around nightfall on Wednesday, though there will still be a chance of rain all night.
