After a dry open to the month, shower chances will rise Saturday as our next storm system moves into the Ohio Valley. A low pressure area will stall across the Ohio Valley and bring periods of rain with heavy downpours through Sunday. This will be just the beginning of a long wet weather pattern.
The low pressure area will be cut off from the jet stream and sit over the region for most of next week. We will have a daily chance for rain across the state through Thursday and up to two inches of rain will be likely. The daily clouds and rain will keep us cool. Expect highs near 70 degrees each day. Sunshine will return Friday along with a slight warm up.
