Deep gulf moisture will be drawn into the Ohio Valley providing numerous
showers and storms across the region. These will move gradually from west to
east across the basin today through Sunday. A frontal boundary will then
arrive late Monday and Tuesday. This feature will also bring unsettled
conditions as it moves through, but high pressure behind the front will bring
a temporary return of relatively cooler and drier conditions until late in week
when heat and moisture will begin returning to the Ohio Valley.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flood potential is currently low. Chances for localized flooding/flash
flooding will increase late this weekend into next week.
