A disturbance will continue to bring showers and storms to the southern Ohio
Valley today. High pressure increasing in the basin Friday and Saturday will
keep conditions dry during that time.
Chances of rain will return to the basin Sunday as cold front drops into the
basin from north of the area late in the weekend.
Another cold front will push south through the basin late next week. Moisture
drawn out of the Gulf of Mexico ahead of this front is expected to provide more
significant amounts of rain to the southeastern half of the Ohio Valley.

not likely for the foreseeable future.
