Good Sunday, folks. Flooding continues to be a big issue across parts of southern and eastern Kentucky as we get ready to wrap up the weekend. As this is happening, Old Man Winter throws a little shot our way through early on Monday.
Rounds of heavy rain continue to fall across the southern and southeastern parts of the state. This is fall on top of a waterlogged ground from the Saturday rains.
Flooding is a serious issue on many creeks and streams, and along areas of the Cumberland and Kentucky Rivers. A state of emergency has been declared in Harlan County. Please stay safe, folks.
Temps are crashing from northwest to southeast today, leading to some winter weather. Light freezing rain is trying to show up in the west and north, but the main action may show up tonight and early Monday. That’s when another wave of low pressure develops on our front, leading to a swath of light freezing rain and light snow…
Some slick travel may develop in time for the Monday morning commute.
A few showers will linger into Tuesday and Wednesday, before we track another potent system by late week. While this may have a wintry aspect behind it, we are going to need to watch for the possibility of another big rain event…
The overall pattern keeps a very active storm track going in our region. The Canadian 10 day Precipitation totals are way up there…
The GFS is also VERY active over the next 2 weeks…
Let’s get back to today’s weather. I have you all set to do some tracking…
