Watching The Flash Flood Potential

Good afternoon, everyone. I wanted to drop by for an update to increase the awareness about the potential for flash flooding issues to develop over the next few days. Rounds of thunderstorms will continue to move across our region, and these will be loaded with torrential rains.

I’ve talked about this pattern for a while now, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise. That said, some of the numbers on the forecast models are a little concerning.

The new Hi Res NAM  is showing several inches falling across central and eastern Kentucky through Tuesday. The max rainfall number on this run is 8.3″…

The Hi Res RPM model has similar totals showing up across the Ohio Valley into central and eastern Kentucky…

These storms are coming in waves and are NOT “pop up storms” as described by one local NWS office. SMH.

Watch the flash flood threat over the next few days. In addition to the flash flood potential, some of the storms may be strong or locally severe. Here’s the outlook from the SPC for the rest of today…

Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook for Monday…

I have you all set to track today’s rounds of storms rolling in from the northwest…
