Saturday night will stay dry in Western New York with cloudy skies, but rain expected to move over N. PA.

By Saturday evening, the most intense part of the storm was passing through southern IN on its way to central OH, and "as it gets closer you just get continuous rainfall", some of it heavy, Franks said. As a result a Flood Watch has already been issued for Oneida, Madison, Chenango, and Otsego counties from 8:00 PM Sunday through 2:00 AM Tuesday.

The heaviest rain will push east of the St. Louis metro between 12-2PM. The front should stall to our north on Sunday, but it will invigorate showers and storms across the area on Sunday and then allow for isolated showers and storms likely through Wednesday as the front just hangs out north of us.

The National Weather Service is predicting rain Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Rain will not be widespread, so it is not expected to be a wash-out.

The National Weather Service says to expect the possibility of flooding along streams and creeks, as well as in low lying areas. Ponding on area roadways is possible everywhere, including during the Monday morning commute. Forecasts indicate a dry week ahead with cooler temperatures to start before gradually climbing into the mid-80s by week's end. "It will rain pretty consistently until Monday afternoon ... but it does look like Tuesday will bring some relief from the rain", he said.
