Showers and a few rumbles of thunder expected today

The rain we have been telling you about all week long is moving into Kentucky and Indiana as an area of low pressure moves northeast into the Ohio Valley. Today will be a pretty soggy day with rain continuing into this afternoon and then gradually tapering off this evening. Free water for our gardens! Rainfall totals could range anywhere from 0.5-1.5″ and we may hear a few rumbles of thunder throughout the day. 

Friday will be a brief return to nicer weather with dry skies through most of the day and highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Clouds increase Friday evening as another wave of low pressure approaches. 

Low pressure moves in causing showers and thunderstorms off and on throughout Saturday morning and afternoon. No risk of severe weather at this point. A few showers may linger into Sunday. 

Even with a stray shower, Sunday will be mostly dry and much cooler. Temps will top out in the 50s Sunday then warm back up into the middle 60s by Monday. 

A system looks like it will bring another round of rain later into the day on Tuesday lasting into Wednesday. We’ll firm up the timing of that system over the next couple of days.
