Flood Threat Update

Good evening, everyone. Rounds of heavy rain continue to work from southwest to northeast across the state, with the heaviest rains arriving later tonight into Tuesday. This will lead to an increased risk for flooding across the bluegrass state.

Numerous counties across western Kentucky continue to be under a Flood Warning, with Flood Warnings out for many other rivers including the Ohio…

Minor to moderate flooding is forecast along many points along the Ohio. Here are just a few areas of concern…

Ohio River at Cincinnati

Ohio River at McAlpine Upper

Ohio River at Owensboro

Ohio River at Shawneetown

The entire state continues to be under a Flood Watch into Tuesday…

You know the drill, if you live in a low-lying or flood prone area, please stay alert to the potential of rising waters.

Winds later tonight into Tuesday will be very gusty and could top 40mph at times, especially in the central and eastern parts of the state.

Much colder air then filters in behind this departing system and that could mean some wraparound light snow for a time Tuesday night.

The setup behind this remains very active, but the pattern continues to trend colder. The late week/weekend setup is turning a little colder…

Let’s get back to the weather of today and tracking the rounds of heavy rain…

Make it a good one and take care.
