Special Weather Statement Update – Sunday, 4:45pm
A fast-moving storm system will cross the Ohio Valley Monday, bringing two rounds of copious rainfall, and wind gusts near 40 mph with locally damaging gusts possible in strong afternoon and evening thunderstorms.
Moderate to occasionally heavy rain will quickly overspread the area around midnight tonight, causing reduced visibilities at times, and possibly ponding and minor flooding of poor drainage areas.
After this rain exits the area Monday morning, a period of gusty south to southwest winds is likely. Gusts will approach 40 mph at times, making driving difficult on east-west roads.
A line of strong thunderstorms will move through Monday afternoon and early evening. The main hazard will be locally damaging wind gusts, with localized flooding also possible in areas that receive repeated heavy rain.
The weather will improve late in the evening, with gusty west winds and scattered showers expected by midnight Monday night.
