Flooding Woes Continue

Good Wednesday, everyone. Major flooding issues continue across parts of central and eastern Kentucky, especially along some of our rivers. Additional showers and a few storms are possible today, but this shouldn’t be as heavy as the past few days. Still, it won’t take much more to cause some issues.

Several areas have picked up more than 6″ of rain since Monday and that’s leading to continuing flooding issues. Here are the current warnings…

 

The Licking River is expected to reach the second highest levels on record in Cynthiana and Falmouth…

 

 

Those numbers are second only to the March 1997 flood that devastated both cities.

Here are a couple other waterways likely to experiencing significant flood issues…

 

 

As mentioned, additional rounds of showers and a few storms may spin back into the region from the southeast and east. This happens as our upper low starts to move farther to the southeast…

Scattered showers and storms will be back with us on Thursday, but it doesn’t look nearly as concentrated.

As this system finally moves away on Friday, very warm and muggy air sweeps in here for the long Memorial Day weekend. Temps surge deep into the 80s and could tickle 90 in the west by Memorial Day.

With this warm and muggy air will come a few more rounds of thunderstorms…

A few strong storms will be possible during this time. Could we see a few more flash flood issues? That’s certainly possible and something to watch for.

Have a great day and take care.
