Flood Watches Go Up

Good evening, everyone. We continue to track a big storm system toward the region as It rolls our way for late Halloween and Thursday. This will bring heavy rain and high winds to the region, with the greatest threat for the worst of the weather across the west and central.

A Flood Watch has been issued for much of the region from Halloween through Friday morning. Here’s a look…

That matches up well with the map I first put out several days ago…

The European Model continues to spit out some very concerning totals. The latest run hits the 7″ mark across parts of east-central Kentucky…

Flooding and flash flooding issues are both possible across the highlighted areas. Please stay alert to rising water worries.

Winds are also a major player over the next few days. Gusts may reach 40mph on Halloween with gusts of 50mph or greater possible Thursday into Thursday night.

Much colder air sweeps in behind this system for Friday with another system rounding the bend of the deep trough on top of us. That keeps chilly showers going through the day and into Saturday morning…

That moves away very quickly, with another shower maker moving into the western half of the state as early as late Saturday. Another powerhouse of a storm system by Tuesday and Wednesday…

That could be another major rain, storm and wind maker for our region. Behind that? The bottom falls out…

The first true winter signals are showing up as we get deeper into November.

Enjoy the rest of the day and take care.
