Warm & Wet Week Ahead

High pressure located to the northeast of the region and low pressure located to the west will cause southeast winds to develop throughout the day. This will warm temperatures into the upper 50s despite rain working into the region this afternoon. Southeast winds may gust in excess of 20 mph. This may actually bring temperatures into the low 60s this afternoon.

A small chance of rain is possible overnight. Though, the best chance seems to be well north of the Ohio River. We will be stuck under cloudy skies and continued southeast flow. Lows will remain mild and in the low 50s.

Temperatures will continue to drop Wednesday morning, perhaps into the upper 40s. A chilly afternoon is expected with heavy rain sticking around the area. Highs will top out in the low 50s for the remainder of the day. The development of flooding may be a concern as some models give us up to 2″ of rain through Thursday morning.
