Another Soaker On The Way

A slowly advancing storm system gave the area some great weekend weather but the start of the work week will be very wet.

The storm center will be spinning between the Ohio Valley and the Great Lakes for the next two or three days.

The cold front associated with the low pressure center will be moving into the mountains on Monday and a warm front will be moving north. The combined flow of moisture from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico will generate some significant rainfall, perhaps in the neighborhood of 1.5 inches.

While April has received an abundance of rain, the area is still short of the average for 2009 and this rain “event” will help to close the gap.

By the end of the week, drier conditions and warmer temperatures should return.
