Same old, same old… scattered shower/t’storm chance continues

Yesterday some very heavy rain affected the region–most of it fell across our southern counties.  Here are some totals from the area:

We did have a few stronger wind gusts, too, but no major damage was reported.  Take a look at regional totals–Cincinnati actually set a daily rainfall record yesterday, beating the old record of 2.18″, set  in 1906:

A disturbance is moving through this morning, bringing more rain to the area.  We don’t have any lightning strikes, and most of the rain is across the northern counties:

This activity will taper off in the late morning, and it looks like a pretty quiet lunch hour into the early afternoon.  But again with daytime heating, we will watch for additional showers (even a few thunderstorms) to develop this afternoon.  The northern counties stand the best chance at seeing this activity, but I wouldn’t rule out a shower or two in the south.  The severe weather threat is low, but an isolated stronger wind gust or even some hail will be possible.

An upper low will close off over the region as we head into the weekend:

This is going to mean cooler temperatures, but the continued chance of rain–especially in the afternoon hours.  The pattern continues.
