Rainy end to wintry February, minor flooding possible

Forecast

Sunday felt like a typical damp early spring day.

A warm front lifted north of the Ohio River, bringing waves of rain that taper off after midnight, lingering longer across the southeastern counties of Ohio, where 1 to 2 inches of rain caused minor flooding in low-lying areas. Showers will push east with a cold front.

Temperatures rose to 60 degrees by early evening, and will hold nearly steady until the front goes by around midnight. Colder, drier air will sweep the deeper moisture east of the region by daybreak, as temperatures tumble back into the chilly 30s for the morning commute.

High pressure will build southeast from the Upper Mississippi Valley to the Ohio Valley, shifting the flow to northwest and bringing back seasonably chilly weather to start the month of March.

A disturbance tracking across the South will bring high clouds Tuesday night and early Wednesday, with rain staying well south of the Ohio River.

Temperatures will start off in the crisp low 40s early in the week, then moderate to the low 50s midweek. A shot of colder air will arrive by next weekend, dropping highs back into the chilly 30s.
