Flood Threat Update

Good evening, everyone. Rounds of showers and storms have a already dumped more than an inch of rain across parts of the state, and we have a lot more to come.

I’m concerned with an overnight flash flood potential as a few thunderstorms get involved in the mix. Another 1″-2″ may fall out there tonight into early Thursday, with locally higher amounts in storms.

I give up on trying to figure out the whole Flood Watch thing from our local NWS offices. Check out the jump zone in the east…

Several inches of rain are likely through Sunday. Nothing has really changed with all that and I don’t expect a lot of change in the coming days. I continue to like what the European Model is doing with the heaviest rain axis…

I’m also watching the severe storms potential Saturday into Saturday night. That happens as a potent low wraps up just to our west and finally drags the front through Kentucky. Check out the storms blowing up along this…

Here are your trackers for the evening…

Make it a great evening and take care.

    So far….mostly heavy but very brief showers in Harlan today with less than a tenth of an inch in my rain gauge but have been curiously watching the convective train in south central KY running towards Ashland. If the heavy showers/storms move about 50 to 75 miles to the east tomorrow, far SE KY could have some local flash flood issues.

    Andy, Troy and other SE KY folks need to be on alert, especially later this weekend.

    Seems like a December of 2004 set up. Anyone else remember that? Western KY got hammered with snow, the I-65 corridor got an ice storm, and the I-75 corridor and points East got light rain. This is making very little progression East of I-65
