Showers and thunderstorms are once again on the MaxTrack early this morning. The coverage is a little more than what we were dealing with 24 hours ago. Northern counties are the ones with the activity. Most of what we have so far has been light and scattered. A few stronger showers and storms sit around the Ohio River. Otherwise, it’s another warm and muggy start with clouds overhead.
Storms will continue to slide in through the day Tuesday as the stationary boundary remains overhead. Some swaths will contain heavy showers keeping the flash flood threat alive through the day. As expected, the FLASH FLOOD WATCH has been extended through this evening thanks to additional rounds of rain expected. Thunderstorms will also be present, especially through the afternoon. Heavy rain and lightning are expected with storms. There is a small chance for both damaging wind gusts and hail. One or two of these storms may push severe limits. We’ll see shower activity wind down overnight before a few final waves on Wednesday. Afterwards, higher pressure will begin to solidify over the region. This will keep a mostly sunny look to the forecast every day through the weekend. Rain chances will drop off, but heat and humidity will crank up. Expect to be pushing 90 degrees for the holiday weekend.
