Flash Flood Threat Continues

Good Tuesday, everyone. Rounds of thunderstorms keep coming at us and that keeps the potential for flooding going. Many areas of the Commonwealth are soaked after days of rain, so it won’t take a lot to cause more issues to develop. Ugh.

Listen, you guys know the drill of the forecast because it’s the same as we’ve been talking about for days now. Clusters of thunderstorms are working across the region and putting down a tremendous amount of rain. For that reason, the Flash Flood Watch continues…

Storms can dump 1″-3″ of rain in an hour or so as they move through. If those move across the areas hard hit by recent flooding, things can get ugly.

In addition to the flooding potential, a few strong to severe storms are possible. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Wednesday finds more of the same with storms putting down too much rain in some areas. There’s also the threat for severe storms…

Humidity levels are through the roof and this is going to continue through the big holiday weekend. Storm chances come down as the steamy meter goes up. Highs will be around 90 with a heat index toastier than that.

As always, I leave you with your tracking toys for the day…

    Is there any chance a Canadian air m$&s will reach us in the near future?

      Sorry about the near duplicate statement, I did not think my thoughts were heard loud enough the first time.(lol)

    No one knows when the polar jet will relieve us from this typical heat and humidity. Maybe we will have a break in the pattern sometime in July.

    Everyone lets all step back and take a deep breath and relax. What is going on in this world has gotten everyone “tied in knots.” We need to except it and move on with a positive attitude for the benefit of our great country the United States of America.

  5. Schroeder says:

    According to the Kentucky Mesonet 1.87 inches of rain fell in Taylor county and the big winner was Marion county with 6.09 inches of rain all in the last 48 hours and more on the way for some.

    Western KY getting drenched. Major flash flood scenario.

  7. David in Georgetown says:

    Just saw a post on Chris’s twitter feed that Stamping Ground has seen nothing but drizzle out of all of this. We had a stray shower Saturday night and a stray shower last night and that’s it in Georgetown from the system. My gauge isn’t even at a quarter inch. One of the Louisville mets posted a rainfall accumulation chart and it looks like from Lexington straight north up the 75 corridor has been largely missed. Kentucky weather is fickle-flood warnings earlier this week 25 miles away, while others are getting little to nothing. This happened a few years ago also, and the dam broke with one of the worst storms I’ve ever experienced. Prayers for those dealing with the flooding this week.
