Hopefully you had a chance to enjoy the Sunday sunshine. An active and very pattern targets the Ohio Valley this week...beginning tonight as rain and some thunder increase after midnight.

Many areas experience a wet Monday morning commute with downpours likely and possibly small hail in stronger cells. Widespread rain Monday morning gives way to scattered coverage as the best lift moves northward with a warm front.

Out the door temperatures near 50 jump into the mid-60s after a warm front lifts northward. Central Indiana will be in this unseasonably balmy air for some 36 hours and record high temperatures are possible Tuesday.

In fact we believe the record for highest minimum temperature (52 set in 1930) likely gets obliterated with a forecast "low" of 60 Tuesday morning. To put that in perspective...the low Tuesday is nearly 20 degrees above the average high.

The record high Tuesday afternoon (72 set in 2016) will be rivaled with only scattered rain/storm coverage expected. But another round of widespread heavy rain emerges Tuesday night and this likely stretches into Thursday morning. Rain amounts from tonight to midday Thursday likely end up in the 2"-5" range for much of our viewing area. Now exactly where the heaviest axis occurs still needs some fine-tuning.

But if you live in a flood-prone area, near a river/creek/stream, or low-land region... please know there's an elevated risk of flooding this week in Central Indiana and the Ohio Valley.

Additional heavy rain is possible next weekend too as the pattern remains moist and the storm track through the Ohio River Valley - Sean Ash
