Updating The High Wind and Heavy Rain Potential

Good evening, folks. Thursday into Thursday night continue to look very active in our part of the world as another potent storm system impacts the region. High winds may cause issues and heavy rainfall can cause a few local high water issues.

A Wind Advisory is out for much of Kentucky Thursday and Thursday night. Wind gusts of 50mph of higher will be possible, but the Hi Res NAM continues to show some 60mph+ gusts…

Those winds can cause power hits and knock a few trees down, so take precautions ahead of the wind.

Heavy rainfall may also become an issue for some areas, especially across southeastern Kentucky. Local high water issues may develop.

Colder air comes in behind this departing system on Friday with another system due into the region by Saturday night and Sunday. That may bring some rain and snow with it…

A few of the models are really turning the New Year’s Eve system into a big rain maker across Kentucky. The GFS is showing some big rains…

The European has some big totals too…

If those are accurate, a big flood event would be in store for our region. That said, there are so many waves of low pressure, it’s making for a tough time on the models.

The European follows that up with another system that has more of a winter signal…

 

The GFS Ensembles continue to show the colder than normal shots taking control of our weather through the first few weeks of the new year…

The Canadian Ensembles are very similar…

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.
