Flooding and Severe Storms Threat

Good afternoon, gang. That strange thing showing up in the sky today is called the sun. It’s a rather elusive phenomenon, so enjoy it while you can because more rain and severe storms are on the way.

For the past week, I’ve been setting the stage for a possible severe weather event for the weekend. That setup continues to look fairly explosive and should result in severe thunderstorms, high winds and flooding rains.

The Storm Prediction Center has much of Kentucky in the Slight to Moderate risk for severe storms on Saturday…

Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible. The prime time for severe weather is during the afternoon and evening hours.

Before all this, rain and some rumbles of thunder develop tonight across our region. This will carry us into Friday and is likely to produce additional flooding issues across the southern half of the state. Check out the rainfall numbers tonight into the daylight hours on Friday…



Given the amount of rain and ongoing flooding issues this area is seeing, Flood Watches should already be going up in these areas…

Here are all the current Flood Warnings…

Additional heavy rain then develops Friday night through Saturday night, deliver an increased flood threat to most of the state. My rain forecast through Sunday morning…

I will have an update on WKYT at 4pm then have another KWC update this evening. Until then, here’s regional radar to keep you company…

Have a good one and take care.

    Are we ever going to have a good snow this year? šŸ™

    *Slight to Enhanced Risk. I don’t see any Moderate Risk outlined from SPC on Day 3 at this time.

      It will probably be North East AR, South Mo, and Western TN if it progresses into something stronger. Tomorrow will tell. Road trip to Memphis.

    Nothing weather wise is more funny than getting CB going about drought discussion (he’s not a fan of that discussion). At this pace, that’ll be a long time coming.

    Wow..Euro spitting out pockets of close to 5 inches in some of the southern border counties and parts of south Eky through Monday..Bad..Hope it’s wrong..

    • Terry says:

      Rain looks earlier, more aggressive and much worse short range than what everyone keeps predicting. This may end up being a major disaster and this was what I figured was going to happen before we could get out of this pattern!

    No more sun ā˜€ it was nice while it lasted here in BG!

  6. My father will be 87 in a few weeks and he said in his lifetime he had never seen as much rain on a regular basis than we have seen in the past 1+ years. And yes, the sun was nice while it lasted.

  7. Jared from Letcher County says:

    NWS forecasting The Kentucky River and its tributaries to reach moderate to very close to major flood stage at several points.

  8. Andy Rose says:

    I went and got my bread and milk today I expect to be behind water for a couple days.

  9. BH says:

    After all this rain recedes. The banks of the rivers will look like garbage dumps after cleaning out everyone’s back yard.

  10. Prelude says:

    We got flooding mudslides sinkholes in Kentucky meanwhile Los Angeles had snow today and Las Vegas has had snow for the fifth time this month, Flagstaff AZ could have a two day snow total of 4 feet. Severe Thunderstorms and Tornadoes wreaking havoc this upcoming weekend from the Ohio Valley and points south. If you go far enough north this weekend there will be a full on raging blizzard. I almost forgot there will be a wind advisory sometime this weekend. Iā€™m surprised there is no Cat5 hurricane threatening the US mainland.
