Clouds will increase overnight as temperatures fall to the upper 30s and middle 40s. As an area of low pressure tracks across the Ohio Valley,  rain will develop from southwest to northeast during the early morning hours.  We will see periods of rain Monday, along with a few heavy downpours and a rumble or two of thunder. Highs will be in the 50s.

Why is it that rainy days and Mondays remind me of the famous 1971 hit song by the Carpenters? You can listen to it here if you have never heard it, or are in need of a nostalgic moment.

Showers will likely linger into Monday night and early Tuesday. Skies will gradually clear and winds will increase by Tuesday afternoon and highs will be in the lower to middle 60s. Slightly cooler temperatures arrive Wednesday with a nice warming trend starting Thursday. Afternoon temperatures will be near 70 degrees for the end of the work and school week.
