Flash Flooding and Strong Storms

Good afternoon, everyone. Torrential rains are moving into the region and will continue into the overnight hours. Flooding and flash flooding issues will develop and things could get rather ugly in some areas. We are also on guard for a few strong storms in the southeast.

A general 1″-3″ of rain will fall through tonight across many areas, with the greatest concentration across central and eastern Kentucky. The Weather Prediction Center has a Moderate Risk for flooding out for these areas…

Flash flooding and general flooding are likely with this setup, so please stay alert to this potential into early Thursday.

A few strong storms may show up, especially across southeastern Kentucky. This is where we have a low-end risk for severe storms from the Storm Prediction Center…

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and will try to have a KWC update this evening, but I may be a little busy. Regardless, I have you all set to do some tracking…

Tracking Another Flood Threat

Good Wednesday, everyone. We have a potent system working into the region today and this will bring the potential for more flooding issues and even the chance for some strong storms. Following all this comes a quick-hitting blast of arctic cold.

Let’s start this out with looking at the Flash Flood Watch that’s out for the entire state and many of the surrounding areas…

Flood Warnings are now out for several rivers across the region…

My concern is for a corridor of torrential rains developing this evening across areas of central and eastern Kentucky. That could really increase the flash flood risk in these areas.

The potential is also there for a few strong storms are also possible, but not likely. High winds would be the primary player with the greatest threat across southeastern Kentucky. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Cold air crashes in behind this for Thursday with an arctic front sliding in Thursday afternoon. That may have a broken line of snow showers along it, with some snow showers behind it into Thursday night…

I will have updates later today. Until then, I have you all set to do some Wednesday weather tracking…
