Local High Water Threat This Evening

Good evening, folks. We have heavy rain and thunderstorms working across central and eastern Kentucky. These storms are putting down small hail, but it’s the increased flood threat that’s getting my attention. We really need to be on alert for some high water issues across parts of these areas.

This is because a comma head of heavy rain is working across these areas, leading to a quick couple of inches of rain. That would be more than enough to cause high water issues for some…

Better weather blows in for the weekend as temps mild up.

The pattern for next week continues to trend colder and colder and this is the beginning of sustained winter settling in to much of the country.

A cold front moves in on Monday, bringing gusty rain in here for the afternoon and evening. A second front looks to pass through here with cold air and some snow showers showing up behind it for Wednesday and Thursday…

The colder setup means very little warming shows up after that, with another shot of cold trying to be ushered in by a storm system from Friday into the weekend…

The pattern after that is ripe for more winter weather…

All of this is arriving right on schedule.

Make it a good evening and take care.

    Super low flash flood guidance combined with some hourly accumulation of rain greater than 1 inch in places = some dangerous flash flooding potential tonight, especially in eastern KY!

    So for SE KY, we would literally be above average on snowfall for season-to-date if we only could convert our accumulated rainfall on an inch per inch basis from December 1st through January 4th…literally, we wouldn’t need the 1 inch = 10 inch ratio for rain to snow!

    I am closing in on 10 inches of rain since December 1st…a lot for meteorological winter to date!!!

    Just had a pretty intense thunderstorm roll through. Lots of lightning, thunder and wind.
