Mason’s Monday Outlook 2/21

Good morning, folks, and happy Monday!

Today’s Forecast

Pleasant weather can be expected for your Monday, as temperatures will be mild. For today, temperatures will top out in the mid 60s with partly sunny skies, and a bit breezy with wind gusts up to 25 mph possible. Later this evening into tonight, expect rain chances to increase as the threat of flooding becomes a concern. Low temperatures in the upper 50s. The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued a flood watch for the entire region as 1-3″ of rain, and potentially more, is in the forecast through Tuesday night. This is a concern due to the flooding rains we saw just last Thursday. Also with this rain, the threat that thunderstorms may turn severe remains another item to watch. Always remember to turn around, don’t drown, and to stay up to date on local weather and traffic conditions if out and about.

What to Watch For

After this first rain-making system moves out of our area Tuesday night, we have a small dry period on Wednesday before the next rain chances Wednesday night, Thursday, and Thursday night. With two large rain systems this week, flooding remains a huge concern. Stay tuned for the latest on the developing threat.
