Rain chances kick off work week for some

Heat wave with temps in the 90s ahead

Clouds slowly increase overnight as an area of low pressure well to our southwest moves a little closer. Forecast models indicate this system could produce a few spotty showers over Northern Kentucky early Monday through the first part of the afternoon. Tonight, becoming mostly cloudy by daybreak with a low near 65 degrees.

Most areas north of the Ohio River should stay dry, but there is a slight chance showers could develop elsewhere. We are not expecting severe weather and we'll see drier conditions during the afternoon.

A warm front will move over the Ohio Valley Tuesday followed by a cooler boundary. We'll see scattered rain and isolated garden-variety thunderstorms Tuesday through Wednesday. 

Behind these systems, a dome of high pressure will pump in very hot air and allow for very little in the way of cooling rain. This will likely kick off a heat wave. Our temperatures will likely top the lower to mid 90s from Thursday through the weekend with high levels of humidity making it feel like triple digits into the weekend.
