**FLASH FLOOD WATCH THROUGH TUESDAY 2 PM EST**
Our wet and unsettled weather pattern is set to stick around Kentuckiana, although we may see a few much-needed breaks into the mid and late week. With plenty of moisture streaming northward from the Gulf of Mexico and a stationary boundary just to our north, our rain and thunderstorm chances will continue into Tuesday. With so much available moisture, any storm that develops could produce some localized heavy rain that could lead to flooding issues. We’ve already seen several inches of rain in the metro area and Southern Indiana over the weekend, so any additional rain could cause a few problems. A Flash Flood Watch is out for the northern half of Kentuckiana until 2pm on Tuesday. Expect the warm and humid conditions to persist with highs in the low 80s Tuesday.
We could see a break from the rain and storms Tuesday night and much of Wednesday before another wave of energy brings more storms late Wednesday with highs into the mid-80s. The storm chances will continue Thursday with another break in the action as we welcome the summer season officially to end the week. At this point, much of Friday looks dry across the area. Unfortunately, it looks like yet another weekend where we’ll be dodging scattered thunderstorms from time to time with more summer warmth and humidity as highs climb back into the upper 80s.
TONIGHT: Showers and thunderstorms. Low: 70. Wind: SW 5 mph.
TUESDAY: Scattered rain and thunderstorms. High: 83. Wind: SW 5 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Dry early with storms returning late. High: 86. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
