It's been a soggy 24 hours in the Commonwealth with rainfall totals ranging from around .5" in the Bluegrass to over 3.5" up to 3.75" over southeastern counties. A cold front sweeps through today and gradually wraps up our morning rounds of moderate to heavy rain and lingering showers later in the day. A flood watch remains in effect over eastern counties through 10 am Tuesday.
Expect mostly cloudy skies and a cool day with highs in the mid to upper 60s. We're chilly tonight with mostly clear skies and lows in the mid 40s. Areas of dense fog are possible early tomorrow morning, especially in areas that have had heavier rain. Wednesday and Thursday will be dominated by a ridge of high pressure. We'll end up dry, sunny and in the upper 60s to low/mid 70s late in the work week. Another cold front approaches and will throw chances for showers and storms our way Friday night into Saturday.
