Heavy Rain and Strong Storms

Good Thursday to one and all. We have another very soggy pattern taking control of the weather through the upcoming weekend. Some of the storms may be strong and put down too much rain, leading to some additional high water issues.

The Storm Prediction Center has a low risk for severe storms on top of us today. Here’s a look at the latest Severe Weather Outlook…

The setup may produce some local wind damage with the stronger storms going up, so we will be on guard for that.

This is in response to a system moving in and slowing down on top of our region. Additional rounds of showers and storms will then carry us through Friday and into Saturday, putting down very heavy rainfall. These rains will likely cause, at least, local high water issues.

Scattered storms will be around on Sunday, but may not be as widespread as the next few days. Showers and storms then increase Monday into Tuesday ahead of a fall cold front…

Heavy rain and a few strong storms are likely during this time. Behind that front comes a taste of early Fall with temps going well below normal…

Highs may hang into the 70s for highs, with lower humidity levels. Overnight lows can make a run at 50 in a few spots.

I leave you with your Thursday storm tracking toys…

    Thanks Chris. Looks like I’m going to have to drag out the waders for the next few days at work! We certainly have not had a shortage of rainfall this summer. Everyone stay dry today and watch out for ponding water on the road. Have a great Friday Eve.

    This current Ohio Valley front set up is very similar to a winter set up
    where precip trains along the Ohio River. This type of set up generally is too far west and north for far SE KY to see much rain. At least for now, nice and sunny in Harlan:)

    Too much rainfall…
    Jefferson County deluged with rain, especially during the period between 2am and 10am; some gauges showing up to 5″ during the last 24 hours.
    My weather station here in Valley Station says a little over 4.09″ .
    My homemade rain gauge (that I have to actually measure) was 3.91″

    Rainy start to the KY State Fair. The early morning drive from Lexington to Louisville was a slow go due to heavy rain.
