Another Heavy Rain Event Ahead

Good Saturday, everyone. We have another dry day across the bluegrass state and you should soak it up because another big rain event is on the way. This begins later Sunday and rolls through the first half of the week, with another lurking by the end of the week.

As the first system moves in here on Sunday, a period of frozen precipitation is possible at the beginning. The NAM is showing a period of freezing rain and some snow to start…

Freezing Rain


The next system brings very heavy rain to the region from Sunday night through Tuesday. This looks like a general 1″-3″ of rain during this time…



Given the full creeks, streams and rivers, and a saturated ground, that would be enough to cause flooding and river flooding.

To illustrate how active this pattern is, watch the parade of systems showing up…



The pattern only allows for the cold to intrude so far into our region, as the mild air off the southeast coast fights back. That cold is going to wind this battle, but exactly when remains to be seen. The GFS Ensembles continue to grow more bullish on the cold and that shows up in the 2 week snow map…

I will have another update later today. Until then, make it a good one and take care.
