The remnant moisture from Tropical Depression Fred will pass to our east, but we still get the "soupy" air mass, which will keep rain and storm chances in our forecast all week.

While the threat of severe storms is low, with dew points in the 70s, we could see some minor localized flooding with storms. As the center of the tropical low moves east of the Ohio Valley Wednesday, rain chances will come down to around 30 percent. So, we'll get a drier day.

Temperatures rise into the mid-80s by week's end, so expect chances for those pesky summertime pop-up storms, mainly during the heating of the afternoon.
