Flood Threat Late Thursday and Friday

Good evening, everyone. It’s all eyes on rounds of heavy rain moving in for the next few days. With a saturated ground and swollen waterways, it won’t take much to cause additional high water issues. Unfortunately, this is looking like another 1″-3″ rainfall for many of the same areas hard hit just a few days ago.

My rainfall forecast remains unchanged…

The Euro continues to show some 3″+ amounts in the southeast…

So does the ICON…

The GFS is, as expected. playing catch up and coming around to the heavy rain potential…

Given all the data and where what happened earlier this week, one would assume Flood Watches would be issued. One would assume wrong…

I will never understand this thought process. Folks, as a lifelong Kentucky, it does not take much rain to cause flooding issues around here. Hopefully some watches get issued soon, especially into much of southern and southeastern Kentucky.

This rain ends as a period of snow Saturday into Saturday night, and this may include some sticking snows.

The next system coming in after that continues to show up well on the European Model, though it changes from run to run. Here’s the latest run…

Enjoy the rest of your New Year and take care.

      Like I’ve been saying, you see green, change the screen …. folks it’s just not gonna be cold enough, for long enough for any significant winter weather, and it’s not changing. Trends

      It should. I do not recall anything but a rain storm following such a due east path. A more typical E NE flow would mean the usual for KY. Back end scraps and folks to the north and east getting the main snow. Shame ice does not do the same thing 😉

    I saw what Bus Haynes mentioned in the last post. My area has temps predicted at 40 or above for at least the next 3 weeks. If that’s true the only flakes will be at night and gone real fast.
