More showers and storms with heavy downpours through Sunday

 

HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER SYNOPSIS... Showers and thunderstorms with heavy downpours are expected across the area through Sunday. Flooding along area creeks and streams is possible, and a flash flood watch has been posted for much of southeast Ohio and northern and central West Virginia. Temperatures will remain very warm and humid with highs in the mid 80s to low 90s. The cold front triggering all the thunderstorms, will move through Sunday night, but one last round of thunderstorms is possible Monday afternoon and evening, as a second cold front moves through. Cooler, drier canadian air brings relief from the heat, humidity, and the thunderstorms mid week, before the front returns north with more showers and storms by the later half of the work week.
