Good Friday, everyone. It’s a very busy weather day across our region, with the potential for flooding rains and severe thunderstorms. This action is along and ahead of Tropical Depression Cindy, rolling across Kentucky later today into tonight.
If Cindy is still a depression as it moves into Kentucky, this will mark the second time that’s happened in the past three Junes. Bill moved right over us back in 2015. Having that happen once in June is rare, but in 2 of 3 years is pretty much way out there.
Here’s the latest track from the NHC…
Much of the morning hours may be dry with some sun, then things go downhill quickly this afternoon.
Flooding is a big threat along and north of the track, where several inches of rain will fall through tonight. In addition to the flood threat, severe thunderstorms will develop across the central and east this afternoon and early evening. Damaging winds and a couple tornadoes are possible.
All of this mess moves away by Saturday morning, with a VERY cool air mass settling in here this weekend into the middle of next week. Can we get some record lows early next week? That’s possible as temps drop into the 40s…
I will be tracking severe storms and flooding on WKYT-TV as needed during today’s event. I have you all set to track the storms on your own…
Have a great day and take care.
