Slow-moving low still bringing clouds and rain…

May 6th, 2013 at 7:10 am by under Weather

Last week, we discussed an area of low pressure that would cut-off from the main flow and slowly move south of the area.  Well, we are STILL dealing with this storm system… so expect unsettled weather to continue for the next couple days.

The best coverage of rain will be across the southern half of the Miami Valley, but the northern counties will still see a few stray showers today.  Here is a morning snap shot of Live Doppler 2HD:

Over the past 48-hours, this has been the trend as expected.  Take a look at the 2-day totals:

Cincinnati actually had a record rainfall yesterday–picking up 1.96 on that date… beating the previous record of 1.67, set back in 1882.

With the clouds, rain and a bit of a breeze today… it will feel cool again.  Even as we climb into the mid-upper 60s for highs this afternoon.  On Tuesday, the low will still be nearby, influencing our weather with scattered showers:

BUT it will begin to slowly move away from us, which means our highs will trend a bit warmer each day through mid-week.  The rain chances never completely go away, however, as we stick with a 20% chance of a spotty shower even Wednesday afternoon.  And towards the end of the week, we add rain chances as the next storm system approaches.
