Monday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. I wanted to drop by for a quick update on the rounds of storms moving across the region. Nothing has changed with my thought process, as the flash flood potential is elevated over the next few days.

In the near-term, the short range model known as the RAP is developing targeting areas of central and eastern Kentucky for some big rains through tonight…

Keep in mind that models can vary greatly with rainfall placements and totals. Exact placement of thunderstorms is a tall task, but it’s the trend to look for.

Even on the larger scale models, we are seeing some very hefty totals. The NAM over the next 3 days as some wild numbers…

Just be on guard for the potential for flash flooding from any storm that targets the region.

A few of the storms may also be strong or locally severe. Here’s the latest from the Storm Prediction Center…


I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm. In the meantime, let’s do some tracking…

    No Flood or short term flash flood watches though: nothing new!

      Other than a few 5 minute rain showers, there’s been nothing in my neck of the woods to warrant and type of watch.

        Your area looks a lot wetter than mine though. The mountains down in Harlan mostly break up any T-storm in summer. Only 0.25 here in last week, so far!
