Saturday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. Heavy rain continues to cause issues across southern and eastern Kentucky, and we have more rain to come tonight and Sunday. The flood threat continues to increase in these areas.

Rainfall today has been very impressive in these areas…

 

Total rainfall of 4″+ are possible in the southern and southeastern parts of the state. This will increase the flood threat, with flooding along the Cumberland and Kentucky Rivers likely becoming a big problem. Moderate flooding is forecast along the Cumberland in Knox and Whitley counties.

If you live in a low-lying or flood prone area, please stay alert tonight and Sunday. Here are your tracking tools…

The final wave of precipitation coming in later Sunday and Monday may produce some frozen precipitation. The European Model continues to show some freezing rain in the west, with a few other bands showing up farther east…

The model continues to suggest a small swath of some wet snow Sunday night and early Monday…

The GFS is similar to the above maps, but has the usual coverage and placement differences…

Freezing Rain

Snow

The late week system is starting to get a little more of my attention, as the cold signals are trying to take control of the pattern again. The European Model brings a cold front in here by Friday, with a slow-moving wave of low pressure along it. That could lead to winter weather by late Friday and Saturday…

We have several days to watch and see how that mess plays out.

Make it a good one and take care.

Tracking The Weekend Flood Threat

Good Saturday, everyone. Rounds of heavy rain continue to push in from the southwest and will continue into Sunday. This may put down enough water to cause some flooding problems to develop, especially across the south and east.

This is where we continue to find a Flood Watch through Sunday…

Rainfall totals of 1″-4″ continue to look like a  good bet across much of this region. Given the already soggy ground, that would be more than enough to cause some flooding and flash flooding. Local amounts of 4″+ may try to show up in pockets, leading to an even greater threat for flooding.

The last wave of moisture moving through Sunday night and Monday morning may be in mixed form. The European continues to show this…

I will be at the WKYT Sport, Boat and Recreation Show at Rupp for much of the day, so I won’t be able to update until late.

I leave you with your tracking tools…
