Heavy rain anticipated to hit the region Monday night split into one mass that headed east toward Columbus and another that tracked through Butler County and southwest of Dayton.
The good news is that the latter mass, which will continue on a north-northwest path, will taper by early Tuesday and not affect areas north that have seen heavy rains the past few days, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Monday night.
Look for patchy fog in the morning and more showers and thunderstorms by midday. They’ll last through the afternoon and into the evening, Simpson said.
A line of strong storms that moved through the southern Miami Valley earlier Monday made for a wet commute in the Dayton metro area.
The National Weather Service also received reports of quarter-sized hail and heavy rain in Butler County.
Flooding continued to be a concern in some parts of southwest Ohio on Monday.
A flash flood advisory for Logan County expired at 6:45 p.m. The weather service received reports of high water in and around Bellefontaine.
Lows Tuesday morning will be in the mid 60s with highs near 80.
For Wednesday and Thursday, there is a low chance of widespread rain but a few isolated showers and thunderstorms are likely.
Friday, the chances of showers and thunderstorms increase in the afternoon and evening as another plume of moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico sets up. Highs will be in the low 80s.
