Rainy Start to Week But Cooler Temps & Sunshine Coming

It's a rainy start to the work week in Covington and Northern Kentucky.

A Flash Flood WATCH is in effect for all Northern Kentucky counties through Monday evening.

The National Weather Service reports that another upper level disturbance is responsible for the latest round of showers and thunderstorms in the area and the atmosphere will be capable of sustaining rainfall amounts of 1.5 to 2 inches an hour, which could lead to flooding.

Those living along creeks and streams should be alert of the potential for flash flooding and prepared to move to higher ground. Some local roads and streets may also become flooded.

There is a slight chance for rain on Tuesday as well but the rest of the week looks pleasant and sunny.
