Updating The Flood Threat

Good afternoon, gang. Rounds of heavy rain producing showers and storms keep pushing across the state from southwest to northeast. This action will continue through the middle of the week, raising high water fears. Some of the storms may also become strong or severe.

The WPC has much of central Kentucky in a Moderate Risk for flooding through tonight…

This is the area that picked up severe flooding on Sunday and can’t hold another drop of rain. With the rain increasing later today into tonight, the situation may get pretty dicey. Here are the latest watches and warnings…

As mentioned, some of the storms may also become strong or severe. The SPC has a low-end severe risk today…

The severe storms risk increases on Tuesday…

That risk area will sink farther south Tuesday night and early Wednesday. That’s when a cold front drops into the region, finally pushing the heavy rain and storms east of us. Much cooler air filters in behind it.

To recap, the flood threat is significant through Wednesday. Flash flooding and river flooding may become a big issue for some. A few of the storms may also be strong or severe, producing damaging winds, hail and a tornado or two.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and going through tonight. Until then, here are your rain and storm tracking radars…

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

Tracking Flooding and Strong Storms

Good Monday, everyone. This hyper-active weather pattern is kicking into high gear over the next few days, bringing more heavy rain to the region. This will likely bringing additional flooding issues through Wednesday. In addition to the flooding, the threat for strong and severe storms is entering the picture.

Let’s start with the flooding potential. Much of the state is under a Flash Flood Watch…

Several areas experienced severe flooding on Sunday and, with more heavy rain moving in, additional flooding is possible today. Here’s a look at the current warnings…

These waves of showers and storms coming at us today can put down a quick couple inches of rain. This may lead to additional flash flooding issues, so be sure to stay alert.

Some of the storms may also be strong or severe, especially across the western half of the state. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

As we head into Tuesday, the severe weather risk will increase for much of the state…

Damaging winds, large hail and a tornado or two will be possible.

The showers and storms continue until a cold front finally moves through here later Wednesday. Between now and then, another 2″-5″ of rain may fall across Kentucky. Obviously, that keeps the flash flooding going and would also produce river flooding.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV later today and will shoot you another update at some point. Until then, here are your radars…

Make it a good Monday and take care.
