A Prolonged Flood Threat Begins

Good Wednesday, everyone. Rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms are pushing across Kentucky today, kicking off a prolonged flood threat for the region. Several inches of rain will be likely through the upcoming weekend. Throw in some 30 degree temp swings and a few strong storms, and you have the making of a wild stretch of weather.

Here’s my updated rainfall forecast through Sunday…

That will be more than enough to cause rounds of flash flooding, general flooding and river flooding. If you live in a low-lying or flood prone region, please stay alert to the potential for high water issues.

This setup has the potential to produce significant flooding issues across much of Kentucky and surrounding states.

As a cold front stalls across Kentucky and will lead to some amazing temperature gradients. A 30 degree temperature swing on a given day is possible. The temps are going to be fascinating to watch during this period.

I’m also watching the potential for strong or severe storms at some point later Friday and Saturday.


Here are your tracking tools for day one of our flood threat…


I will have updates later in the day. Make it a good one and take care.

    I’m eager to see how this all pans out. I know how dangerous flooding can be, but I’ve always been fascinated by flooding and the power of mother nature!

    I think the high pressure to our east ( which is stationary at the present time ) is blocking the progression of the current system. Hopefully, the system will move through without the excessive rainfall that is predicted.

    NWS issued special weather statement for Lewis Scioto and points north from 730 until 815 . Absolutely nothing going on here and I don’t see anything on radar here on Scioto/Adams line.
