Heavy Rain and Flash Flooding Likely

Good Tuesday, folks. It’s another day of waves of torrential rain producing showers and thunderstorms across central and eastern Kentucky. This will keep the risk for flooding and flash flooding going as a slow-moving upper low spins right through the region.

Several areas have had flooding issues since Monday and today should bring additional issues. This is one heck of  a setup that can deliver another 1″-3″ of rain through tonight. After the Monday rains, many areas can’t hold anymore, but it could be some of the same areas getting hit again today.

Here’s a look at the updated Flash Flood Watch…

The latest warnings show up here…

You can clearly see the counterclockwise spin around our upper low…

Significant flooding continues to be possible in some areas, so be alert and be prepared to move to higher ground.

Additional showers and a few storms will linger through Wednesday and into Thursday. We will have to see if this will be enough to cause more flooding concerns, but that’s a possibility.

This system tries to pull away on Friday, but there is growing evidence of a system coming in behind it for the Memorial Day Weekend. The GFS is very enthusiastic on rounds of showers and storms again…

Is anyone else feeling a 2004 redux with the pattern going into Summer?

Have a great day and take care.
