Flood Watches remain in effect across central Ohio as we’ll see continued rain showers today. Rainfall totals could end up between 1 to 2 inches in spots. The rain is ahead of a cold front that will bring falling temperatures this afternoon. Our high temperatures will top out in the 60s this morning with temperatures falling into the low 50s and upper 40s by early this evening. It’s possible we could see the rain change to some snow before ending tonight, but we are not expecting any significant accumulation.

Monday through Friday will likely stay dry for most of Ohio with fairly seasonable readings. Highs will top out in the mid to upper 30s with lows in the mid 20s.
