Updating The Flood Threat Ahead

Good evening, gang. We are putting the wraps on temperature day straight out of early June. Now comes the downside to this pattern, as rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms move in. This sets the stage for a prolonged flood threat.

A Flood Watch is already out for much of central and western Kentucky through Sunday…

That watch should have already been issued across the rest of the state, but that makes too much sense. Expect that to come later tonight… I think. Sigh.

The rainfall numbers from the European Model continues to show several inches of rain for the entire state…

Those numbers can lead to all modes of flooding across the entire region. Rounds of flash flooding, general flooding, street flooding and river flooding are all likely.

I cannot stress enough, if you live in a flood prone area, please stay alert to the potential for flooding.

Some WILD temperature swings will also show up, with a 30 degree gradient showing up from time to time. That may actually start tomorrow…

Temps may oscillate between warm and chilly in just a few hours or any one location. Get ready for some wild temp swings, folks.

In addition to the temp swings and flooding rains, Keep a close eye on the weekend for the potential for some strong or severe storms.

There’s also a strong storm and heavy rain signal showing up for the middle of next week…

That likely leads us into an ugly look for early March. Ugh.

Here are your trackers…

I will have the very latest on WKYT-TV starting at 11pm and will have another KWC update later tonight. Enjoy the rest of your evening.
