Periods of rain with significant flooding into the weekend

 

HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER SYNOPSIS... A front boundary will oscillate northward and southward as waves of low pressure ride along the front into the weekend. This will produce periods of rain, along with a couple of thunderstorms possible. With the ground already saturated, flooding is possible, especially over southeast Ohio, northern West Virginia, and along the Ohio River. The front charges through the area on Sunday, finally clearing things out for a dry start to the new work week. More rain is expected mid to late week.
