Ready your rain gear!

The gorgeous weather this past weekend was displaced by a weak cold front that crossed the area Sunday and Monday. Low level easterly flow yesterday brought moisture off of the Atlantic, causing there to be low clouds throughout the day.

Today’s conditions will be similar before the next major system affects the region tonight and tomorrow. A low pressure system developing this morning in the Tennessee River valley region will move up the Ohio valley today and intensify before passing to our northwest tomorrow.

The rain will begin tonight as a southerly low level jet moves eastward into our region, bringing a plume of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean.

The rain will continue until early afternoon tomorrow, and may be heavy at times tomorrow morning, along with a blustery wind. Cooler and drier conditions are expected by Thursday.
