***FLASH FLOOD WATCH*** The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch that will be in effect through this afternoon. Rains on Sunday and this morning have saturated the ground in some locations and additional heavy rainfall could create the potential for Flash Flooding. A low pressure system over eastern Canada will pull a cold front across Ohio on Tuesday. The cold front could generate scattered showers and thunderstorms beginning in the morning and continuing into the afternoon. Some thunderstorms could generate higher wind gusts and may approach severe criteria. The humid air will also create the potential for locally heavy rainfall. The cold front should move east of Ohio on Tuesday evening. A small high pressure system centered over eastern Wyoming will be over our area on Wednesday. The high will bring a brief period of less humid conditions. By the end of the week the high will move east of us and more humid air will return to the state. ***TROPICAL STORM DOLLY*** A new center is forming in Tropical Storm Dolly about 100 miles south of the previous center.
