Be Aware: Storms possible this week

A very mild finish to the weekend with breezy and dry conditions.  The dry part is about to change.

You may have heard about a pretty strong storm system in the midwest that's producing snow and heavy rainfall.  That will eventually move our way starting Monday as a cold front approaches.  The Storm Prediction Center has areas just to our west under a Slight Risk for severe weather on Monday:

The front will stall out, most likely just to the north of the tri-state on Tuesday.  This will keep the chance for scattered thunderstorms in the picture through midweek.  The front will very slowly move our way on Wednesday with widespread showers and thunderstorms expected Wednesday night into Thursday.  That's really the key difference with this system compared to last weeks: the speed.  Because it will be a slow-mover, heavy rainfall will be a big concern, with many areas along and north of the Ohio River seeing 2-3" of rain by Thursday night.  Western Kentucky could pick-up 1-2" of rain as well.

Be Aware:  Although most of the severe weather should stay to our west, it's possible we'll see strong winds and possibly large hail along with the threat for flooding.
