A cold front moving through the basin today will trigger scattered showers and
thunderstorms in the region this afternoon through tonight. While most of this
activity will be relatively light, places that experience thunderstorms could
have a half inch or more. Rain will linger in the northeastern basin due to
influences of the Great Lakes, but dry weather will return on Wednesday and
Thursday before more rain is expected in the Ohio Valley beginning Thursday
night and continuing through Friday.
