Thursday Evening Thoughts

Good evening, everyone. We continue to track rounds heavy rain across parts of the state as we focus on the potential for high water issues across the south and southeast through Friday night. All of this will then end as some snow on Saturday.

There’s nothing more I can say about the rain of the next few days. Areas of southern Kentucky will cross the 1″ threshold late this evening with more rain to come Friday and Friday night. That’s the area to focus on for the best high water potential…

The change to some snow continues to show up for our Saturday as colder air wraps in behind the departing low…

The GFS continues to put down some slush with that…

Another system comes in here by Tuesday with rain, snow and a mix. I’ll talk more about that system and take a look at where I think the pattern goes from there with my next update.

As usual, I leave you with your tracking tools…

Have a great evening and take care.

Thursday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Rain continues to overspread the region from southwest to northeast and this continues through the rest of the day. Rounds of heavy rain and some thunder will continue through Friday, targeting southeastern Kentucky with the heaviest totals and the best chance for high water.

Here’s a look at the areas with the greatest risk for flooding through Friday night…

The GFS is now forecasting 3″ rains in the southeast…

The Canadian Model continues to be much more widespread with the heavy rain potential…

An invisible wall keeps the Flood Watches in Tennessee…

The threat for snow comes on Saturday as low pressure wraps up and moves to our northeast…

Sticking snows are possible Saturday afternoon into the evening…

I’ve got the latest on WKYT starting at 4pm and will have another update on KWC later this evening. I leave you with your Thursday afternoon tracking tools…

Have a good one and take care.

Heavy Rain Brings Another Flood Risk

Good Thursday, everyone. Rounds of heavy rain are moving back into the region today, setting the stage for another round of possible flooding. The greatest threat continues to be across areas of southern and southeastern parts of the state.

I haven’t budged on the rain numbers for the past few days and still don’t see much of a reason to change things…

With so much water in the ground and already filling our streams and rivers, it just will not take much to cause more high water issues for some.

Here’s hoping Flood Watches finally show up…

Once again, there is literally ZERO harm in putting out a Flood Watch in a situation like this.No one is saying it’s going to be widespread, major flooding, but it just takes one instance of flooding to take a life. This last event wasn’t major, yet we had several water rescues. Oh yea… flooding is the number one severe weather related killer.

The models are on board the heavy rain train.

The GFS continues to catch up…

All of this ends as snow wrapping in behind the departing snow Saturday into Saturday night…

Will any of that stick? We shall see.

The next system rolling in by Tuesday continues to have some legs for winter lovers…

I will have additional updates later today. Until then, here are your early day tracking tools…

Have a good one and take care.
