Monday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. We are rolling into the final hours of the year with colder winds blowing. These winds may also blow up a few flakes into New Year’s Eve. Later this week, we see another big rain maker for our region before winter takes control for a bit.

We continue to deal with flooding issues across several areas of the state. Here are the latest warnings…

As we’ve talked about, a rain shower or two is possible this evening with some flakes possible from late tonight through New Year’s Eve. Here’s regional radar to keep ya company…

The next big thing is a heavy rain maker for Thursday into Friday. This system is likely to end as some snow by Saturday and Saturday night…

Here’s the Euro rainfall forecast through Friday…

The ICON has even higher totals…

The setup for early next week is for another storm system to develop along a cold surge coming into the region. The models will be all over the place with this one. The latest Euro does what the Euro does in wrapping it up too far west…

The GFS is doing GFS things in being too progressive with it…

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.

Monday Midday Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Flooding rains have pushed out of the state and the high winds are slowly calming down as our storm system slowly pulls away. Now, we focus on a different looking and feeling pattern, but one that’s just as busy.

Flooding continues to be a problem, especially across areas of eastern Kentucky. Several warnings are still out…

Rivers are going to continue to produce flooding conditions for the next few days, so keep that in mind.

Winds this morning hit 50mph or greater in several areas, causing some issues. Winds will still be gusty this afternoon, but nothing like what we had last night and this morning.

A couple of rain showers may slide back into the region and we run the risk for a few flurries or snow showers going up tonight through New Year’s Eve. The best chance for this appears to be in the north and east and I can’t rule out some minor accumulations.

Here’s regional radar…

The late week setup continues to look like another rain maker for Thursday and Friday, then some snow and much colder for the weekend…

Another surge of cold air comes in early next week and may have a storm system to usher it in. The Canadian continues to target the region…

I will have another update this evening. Have a good one and take care.

Changing Up The Pattern

Good Monday, everyone. Heavy rain and thunderstorms are slowly moving away, but we are still dealing with the high water impact. There is another possible high water maker later this week, but the overall pattern is changing and will give winter fans some action to track.

The torrential rains will end this morning, leaving behind a general 1″-3″ with locally higher amounts. Several areas are experiencing flooding to start the day and many of these areas are in the counties I talked about needing to be under a watch to begin with.

River flooding will also become an issue today. Here are the current warnings…

Here are your early day radars…

Chillier and drier winds will blow today, but a few rain showers may still be noted across the north and east. Colder air then drops in from the northwest and may be accompanied by some flakes through New Year’s Eve. Some of the models continue to bring some snow showers across central and eastern Kentucky during this time…

The new year starts on a seasonal and calm note, but that doesn’t last very long. Another storm system comes our way from the southwest for Thursday into Friday. This is likely to bring another round of heavy rain and possible high  water issues.

The GFS is likely too far strung out with the energy and gives us less rains. It does show the cold and snow wrapping in behind the system by Saturday…

The Euro has more rain, but also shows the weekend change to snow…

The Canadian sees the same thing…

We need to watch the next system diving in behind that early next week. The models continue to go back and forth on a phased system or a non phased system. The Canadian shows more of a phased potential…

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