Heavy rainfall moved through the Tri-State overnight and it caused several issues for our morning commute. As a result of that persistent heavy precipitation, the National Weather Service has issued an Areal Flood Watch that will be in effect through 1PM today for Ohio, Hancock, and Perry counties. Dubois County is under a Areal Flood Warning until 11:45 AM. Right now, we are getting a nice break from the steady showers and that should continue through the lunch hour. However, there is a good possibility some scattered rainfall will resurface this afternoon after the Flood Watch expires. Most of the rain will be light to moderate intensity. The showers should come to an end completely by 9PM.

Most of the rainfall should quickly come to an end as we reach sunset, followed by the breakup of cloud cover overnight and breezy conditions. Even though we'll be dry heading into Friday, it's going to be a chilly one. Make sure you’ve got those jackets handy in the morning! We could be sitting in the mid 30s. Highs will stay on the cooler side in the low to mid 50s, thanks to that northerly flow.

Halloween looks to be the pick of the weekend. Highs in the low 60s with plentiful sunshine!

Despite the passage of this morning's cold front, the Tri State will experience another delightful day. Winds will pick up from the west and could gust as high as 25-30 MPH. Clouds roll back in through the evening as temperature remain in the upper-50s.
