(FOX19) -
A warm unstable air mass is settling in the Tri-State Monday, creating a severe weather risk. 
 
A slow moving storm system pushed through the Tri-State Monday morning.
 
The main concern with this system was the heavy rain and lightning. Flood advisories were issued for several counties in the Tri-State, and a flood watch remains in effect until Monday evening. Click here for a map of watches and warnings.
 
The National Weather Service predicts minor flooding of low lying and poorly drained streets, highways and underpasses will occur. In addition, farmland near creeks, streams and drainage ditches will experience minor flooding.
 
Lightning associated with this storm struck the Little Red School House in Greendale, Ind. One minor injury was reported.
 
Additional watches and warnings are possible through the rest of the day. Stay up to date on the FOX19.com weather page.
 
The chance for severe weather will continue through the next few days. Anything that develops will bring the potential for damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain. 
 
Highs on Monday will climb into the middle 80s.  By Tuesday, we'll see the warmest day of the week, with highs in the mid 90s.  From there, we'll cool off into the upper 70s by Saturday.
