Good early afternoon everyone! This will be a brief update regarding rain/snow chances as well as strong winds across the area today. Many of these details will be the same from this morning, but with some nuances. The vast majority of the region is dry currently but this won't last long as we are tracking the rain/snow shower activity (currently located in WI/MI and entering far northern IL) that will sweep through the OHV this afternoon/evening. Along with the precipitation chances, strong winds will be prevalent across the region through the remainder of the day. More discussed on this below.…

Good morning everyone! A vast majority of the region has dried out this morning with the exception behind locations along the Ohio River where some patchy mist/drizzle will remain over the next few hours. A gradual clearing trend is anticipated over the southeastern portions of the region (northwestern areas have already cleared out) before we introduce an additional piece of energy from the northwest. This wave will swing into the area starting this afternoon and persist through the evening hours, bringing scattered clouds and precipitation to the circled region. The southern and western portions of IL will largely remain unaffected…

Today's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxo0W01X5ho&feature=youtu.be&hd=1 We do continue to expect light rain showers to work west to east today in a scattered fashion...expecting ~11am to noon west through midnight east through Ohio.

Good afternoon everyone! This will be a quick update regarding very light rain risks along the Ohio River and frost/freezes expected to occur Tuesday morning. Most rains at this point in time are south of the Ohio River but we will continue to see very light rains clip the far southern portions of IL, IN and OH through the early evening hours before most of this activity either fades or exits to the east. Areas of cloud cover will likely linger in these parts through the nighttime hours, likely keeping temperatures slightly warmer than areas to the north. The vast…
