Showers continue to dominate the forecast due to the pesky slow-moving low pressure system *still* spinning west of us. Until this particular low moves out, we will continue to have wave, after wave, of scattered to widespread showers. So far, we’ve picked up between a few tenths up to just shy of an inch of rainfall, and we still have two days before we wrap this storm up. Temperatures are mild, despite the rain.

We’re tracking the low to continue to spin and eventually move over the Ohio River Valley through the course of Tuesday. A few more rounds of rain showers will bring our storm total rainfall to between 1” and 2” before we get to the next dry day. On Wednesday, we will continue to keep a few showers around, although most of the influence will be out of the region. We’ll have one *mostly* dry day Thursday, before a cold front looks to bring back a round of showers going into the weekend. Throughout this entire time frame, expect temperatures to remain below average, but not necessarily cool. Mornings will be chilly running in the 40s, but afternoons warm into the 60s the rest of the work week (that is, unless you’re getting rain). Thursday looks to be the warmest as we see a bit more sunshine, and we could push the mid-60s for afternoon highs. The weekend looks to start cooler after the front, but rebounds nicely for Sunday.  ?
