Flood Threat Increases

Good Wednesday, everybody. We have a super active setup taking shape over the next few days and that spells trouble. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will come at us, putting down a ton of rain. This will cause an increased risk for flash flooding and river flooding through the end of the week.

A Flood Watch continues for much of the state through Thursday night…

A general 2″-4″ of rain will be likely for much of the state. Here’s what I’m expecting…

I’ve talked about how the models were going south with the heavy rain and that’s a trend still showing up. The GFS now looks similar to my map…

In addition to the flood threat, a few strong or locally severe storms will be possible, especially west. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Here are your radars to track the rounds of heavy rain and storms today…

The cold front finally blasts through here Thursday night, with crashing temps behind it. Readings may hit 70 ahead of the front, then drop into the 20s behind it by Friday morning. A brief period of light snow is possible as the cold sweeps in.

Friday’s weather looks good with highs struggling to get past 32 degrees. Lows by Saturday will hit the teens with 30s for highs again.

The next system moving in arrives on Sunday, with a bigger system right behind it early next week. Rain, snow and a mix are all possible during this time…

    Where’s the cold air when u need it. Currently the cold air is locked up in the Northwest.

  4. Lotsasnow says:

    Looks like some interesting weather from Saturday and the next following weeks to come. Models trending south and colder.

  5. JimCVG says:

    Can’t wait to see local rivers after this weekend. The ground is already saturated, and any small rain raises the Ohio noticeably it seems. We could have a repeat of last spring.

  6. Jimbo says:

    I have 40’s and 50’s every day after Saturday. By that time we will have burned through half the month. We are almost to the finish line in the year without a Winter.

      If it doesn’t snow big in February then maybe in March but hopefully not in April.

      • Bobt says:

        Once we get through half the month average highs get 50s in the southern half of state. Spring is on the way with a little minor bumps here and there. Only about 20 days until the end of meteorogical winter. No complaints from me.

  7. Schroeder says:

    One of the meteorologist out of Louisville is talking about TORNADOES as a possible threat tomorrow in addition to the flooding threat.
