Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 9:37AM

Afternoon Showers/T-Showers

Our weather focus today will be on scattered showers and thundershowers that develop due to an upper level low pressure sliding south over the region. Be sure to have a "Plan B" for any outdoor activities you may have lined up. More wet weather will start off the new week on Monday with again mainly afternoon showers and thundershowers.

Forecast Discussion

Our main weather feature continues to be a broad upper level low centered over the Ohio Valley. The low continues moving south next week as it opens into an elongated upper level trough and remains stationary. Bottom line, that translates into a very unsettled weather pattern over the next 7 days.

Today and tomorrow will have mostly PM showers and thundershowers however showers really could occur at anytime during the daytime hours. It really ramps up Tuesday and Wednesday as these days appear to be the wettest two days of the week. Minor flooding could be a concern by Wednesday as well.

A front approaches late next week into the early weekend. Scattered showers and thundershowers remain with us through the end of the week and with a little optimism, the front should pass just far enough to the south by next Saturday to trim back the coverage of the showers and storms just a bit.
