Tracking the Storm
So here is the current track of the coming storm. Low pressure looks like it is going to take a path that will take it over Mercer, Auglaize, and Logan Counties on late Monday. Before it arrives,tomorrow, we will see a chance for a few flurries mixed with a little rain, mainly later in the day, and this should be pretty light. By Monday morning we will see the rain/snow mix pick up and starts witching over to all rain for most of the area. The northern counties that will be close to the track of the low, and will be cooler, and will have the chance to see freezing rain mixed with the rain through the day on Monday. The central and southern portions of the Miami Valley will stay all rain through the day on Monday. By Monday night the cold front will swing through dropping our overnight temperatures back below freezing and we could see a light accumulation of snow on the back side, around 1 inch or so.
With all of the rain, around half an inch or so, along with warm temperatures(near 40 for Sunday and Monday), we will need to watch for flooding. With more rain it could be a serious problem, but with the rain being on the "lighter" side it will not be as pronounced as it could be... Hopefully everyone has cleared out their storm drains to allow the water to go somewhere rather than pooling up.
