The weekend will come to an end on a windy and stormy note for Cincinnati as the potent storm system currently threatening the nation's midsection shifts east.

The greatest threat for any potentially damaging thunderstorm will unfold in the afternoon, when a cold front will make its way into the relatively warm, humid spread across the state.

Even away from any thunderstorms, gusty winds will blow from the south and southwest during the mid-morning and afternoon hours, gusting 30 to 40 mph throughout the Cincinnati area.

Higher localized gusts, capable of minor damage, will reach 50 to 60 mph in and near stronger showers, not necessarily thunderstorms.

Agent for the unsettled weather will be a vigorous storm system, dragging its cold front through Cincinnati as it tracks through the Great Lakes region Sunday.
