Pleasant night before an umbrella day for tomorrow

High temperatures really plummet too

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for the Ohio River. The river level has risen above the 52 feet flood stage and is cresting this evening at 55.5 feet. Get more details on the Flood Warning.

Here's the link for the Ohio River gauge.

We have a new record high of 79 degrees. It's the all time record high for the month of February, shattering the old record of 72 degrees in 2016. 

Clouds are thickening this evening and rain will develop overnight a head of a strong cold front. We expect to have rain much of the day Wednesday and will likely see rainfall totals over 1 inch.

 

A heavy push of rain and isolated storms will move through during the day Wednesday and again Wednesday night into Thursday morning,  An additional 1 inch of rain will fall across the Tri-State. Localized flooding may occur in poor drainage and low-lying areas and we may see a Flood Watch extend eastward over the Tri-State.

It doesn't end there because more rounds of rain are in the forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All said and done, we could see around 4 inches of rainfall by Sunday. Temperatures will remain unseasonably mild in the 50 and 60s for the last weekend of February.
