Well, if anything, this early-Spring pattern, thus far, has remained consistent: A day or two of "acceptable" weather...followed by a day or two of "crummy" weather, and too much of a good thing: Rain. That's the story over the next 48- to 60-hours.
Yet another, moisture-laden, northbound warm front heading for the Ohio Valley will meet-up with slow-moving low pressure via the southern Plains, accompanied by a series of upper air disturbances. The end result will be once again be periods of rain, showers and thunderstorms.
The heaviest rainfall, on the order of 2- to 4 inches, should lay-out along and south of Interstate 70. Renewed flooding is to be expected.
Meanwhile, a fair amount of rain, soaking at times, will fall closer to home.
