Rain showers continue through most of the day Tuesday after severe thunderstorms caused flooding, damage and power outages across the tri-state area Monday night.

Most of the tri-state area is in the midst of an ongoing flash flood watch that expires at noon Tuesday.

As a cold front continues to move through the region, an additional 1-to-2 inches of rain is possible in some spots. Flooding still poses a threat through early this afternoon.

A total of 1-to-3 inches of rain has already fallen over the area so storm totals will be around 2-to-5 inches with locally higher amounts.

The threat of severe weather, including damaging winds and hail, has moved out of the area for the most part, however a few thunderstorms are still possible Tuesday.

The sun will break out by Wednesday as high pressure moves into the Ohio Valley. Temperatures will climb back into the lower 80s on Wednesday and Thursday.
