High pressure setting up along the US southeast coast will pump up a lot of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico into the Ohio Valley early next week. While this will bring unseasonably warm temperatures back into the region, it will also bring back the threat for heavy rain. With saturated ground already in place, flooding will become an increasing concern across the Miami Valley early next week.
