(FOX19) - A Tornado watch that was in effect until 9 a.m. has been cancelled for all counties except Brown, Adams and Mason counties. However, several counties in the Tri-State remain under a flood watch, and the rest remain under a flood advisory.
Right now, areas of steady to moderate rain continue through Northern Kentucky and brushing the downtown metro, with showers north of the river. Storms with gusty winds and lighting continue to push east out of Maysville at this hour. The damage has been done with wind gusts reported up to 62 miles per hour, bringing down trees and power lines. Duke Energy is reporting over 10,200 customers without power at 7:30 a.m.
FOX19 Meteorologist Frank Marzullo and Meteorologist Katy Morgan say the Tri-State has seen over 5 inches of water this month, putting us almost 3 inches above average. The ground is very saturated and flooding along small creeks and streams is possible.
The Ohio River at Cincinnati was at 46.71 as of 7 a.m. Monday morning. It's expected to be at 50.1 feet by Tuesday morning. Flood stage is 50 feet.
Expect light rain showers late morning into afternoon today, temperatures will continue to drop into the upper 40's as skies clear out this evening and we drop to 27 degrees. Expect a stable weather pattern for the remainder of the week.
