Soggy Start to the Week

Waking up and heading out the door for your morning commute, you can expect rainy conditions as you hit the roadways. Rain will be moderate with some embedded areas of heavier rainfall as a cold front slowly moves across the area.

Rain chances drastically decrease from west to east throughout the morning hours on Tuesday and things begin to dry out during the afternoon hours. Cloudy skies will be the main theme on Tuesday with high temperatures making it up to the 50-degree mark.

Heavy Rain Returns on Wed

Rain chances ramp back up as we transition into Wednesday as an upper-level trough begins to swing across the Plains with an accompanying surface cyclone cutting across the Ohio River valley.

As the surface cyclone exits the southern Rockies and Great Plains, it will bring with it plenty of moisture. Moisture from the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico will help enhance the formation of heavy rain across a large portion of the southeast US. Rainfall totals across the area could range anywhere between 1-2 inches.
