Rain showers have been abundant across the forecast area as a low passes with both a warm and cold front. We sit in the crossroads of the system bringing the bulk of rain our way. Snow showers are prevalent to the north of us, while we get stuck with a soaking rain event. A few rumbles of thunder could be heard at times, but mostly we’re just dealing with showers. Temperatures on the north side of the warm front are running cold and in the 30s. Just a few miles south, we’ve warmed into the mid-40s to low 50s as winds shift.

Rain will continue for the rest of the day but will become more scattered. The system will be winding down overnight. Flooding has not been a large issue for our forecast area, but minor flood conditions are still possible, along with ponding on roadways. Most of the rain will leave the state tonight, but the line will not completely leave until early Tuesday morning. Area that may see showers tomorrow morning will be the eastern and southeastern counties. Rainfall amounts as of noon today have already crossed an inch in some locations and will continue to rise through the afternoon and evening. About 1” to 3” of rainfall will be the storm total for most everyone. Next, comes a break in the action for late Tuesday morning through the evening. Another system is on approach for midweek as a low shoots south of Kentucky. Cold air streaming in along with moisture in the area will allow for mostly snow showers to arrive in the afternoon Wednesday, with only the south and southeastern counties starting with rain. Eventually snow takes over for everyone Wednesday evening coming to an end on Thursday morning.
