Mostly dry and seasonable for Columbus Day

The WTVA Severe Weather Authority has a summary of what you can expect in the coming days.

Overnight and Tuesday morning storms could pose flash flood risk

For Monday afternoon, we're seeing a mix of sun and clouds with highs climbing into the lower and mid-70s. Later tonight, an area of low pressure will scoot eastward along that front. So rain chances build even greater into Tuesday morning through midday. Highs reach the upper 60s and lower 70s. At least some light rain is possible for those across the north. But widespread moderate to heavy rainfall is expected for those across the central and southern counties. 

Rain chances diminish some into the afternoon and evening on Tuesday. And a passing cold front will bring a few final raindrops into Wednesday morning. Rainfall totals between now and then should range between 0.50" and 2.50". The following front should bring some drier air to the region Wednesday afternoon. And it will be cooler as well. Most should only reach the mid-60s. 

Expect clear skies through late-week with highs in the 60s for Thursday as well. Morning temperatures will be in the 40s Thursday and Friday morning. Then into Friday and the upcoming weekend, highs will be in the 70s. And spotty showers are possible again for the weekend. 

Stay tuned to the WTVA Severe Weather Authority in the coming days as we continue to fine-tune this forecast.
