Wet and Windy Saturday

A strong frontal system will intensify as it stalls out over the Ohio Valley tonight through Saturday.  Increasing rain will develop overnight and it will be heavy at times through early Sunday morning as several lows track northest along the front.  The final batch of heavy rain will move through the area Saturday night-Sunday morning as the last low drags a front through Kentuckiana. 

Winds will become very gusty by midday Saturday-4am Sunday, howling out of the south at 20 to 40 mph with possible stronger gusts if we see any thunderstorms.  We do have a slight chance for an isolated strong (maybe severe) storm late Saturday evening through night.

The heavy rain should end by 4am Sunday.  Colder air races into the region Sunday with early morning temps near 60 falling into the 40s by afternoon.

Heavy Rain

Ohio River-South: 1 to 3 inches; Indiana:  2 to 4 inches (Greatest Flood Risk)

Possible Flooding

Greatest flood risk is in Indiana, especially the rivers in Lawrence, Jackson and Jennings county.
