Flash Flood Threat Continues

Good Thursday, folks. It’s another day of showers and storms blowing up across the bluegrass state. This action continues to come at us in waves, keeping the local high water threat going. This threat increases just a bit as some Gulf of Mexico moisture gets in the mix.

There really isn’t much more I can add to what’s already been said on here for the past week. This setup has been well advertised, so just be aware of the cloudburst potential and the local high water threat.

Here are your Thursday tracking tools…

 

I’m a little more concerned about the heavy rain threat going into Friday. That’s when a disturbances works into the region, giving the atmosphere a little extra lift. The end result would be more showers and storms. A few more rounds of showers and storms then show up for the weekend…

The models are spitting out some general 1″-3″ rains, but really don’t take into account local amounts from thunderstorms…

The stormy setup is likely to continue into next week. Watch how the total rain numbers continue to climb…

Again, this is a setup primed to deliver additional flash flooding issues to our part of the world.

Have a great Thursday and take care.
