DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The theme for Friday is rain and potentially a lot of it.

The rain could be heavy at times and cause some flooding.  Warren, Butler and Clinton counties remain under a Flood Watch through 8:00 p.m.

Storm Team 2 blames it on a stalled cold front. “On and off rain is the plan for the day,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Tara Hastings. “Believe it or not, we could see a few wet snowflakes early Saturday morning before all the precipitation moves out.”

That same front is what triggered a Tornado Warning for a short time Thursday night for parts of Clark County.  There is no indication of a touchdown, but we did find some damage at a family farm in New Carlisle.  The owners say the barn roof and garage door got the brunt of the strong wind.

Temperatures will actually fall slowly through the day. The mid-day high is 60. The low overnight a wintry 32.

The good news out of all of this is a dry weekend. Temperatures will only be in the 50s Saturday, but the sunshine will return.
