A couple of waves moving around an area of low pressure will provide light
showers to the Ohio Valley. By Wednesday this will have progressed far enough
east that only the eastern edge of the basin will still have any threat of
showers. The remainder of the area on Wednesday and the entire Ohio Valley on
Thursday will see dry conditions as high pressure moves into the area.
A weak disturbance is forecast to pass through the area Friday and Friday night
providing a minimal amount of rain to the region. After this, the weekend and
early next week are expected to be dry.
