Good Monday, everyone. Our Ohio Valley winter storm continues to behave pretty well for most areas, including right here in Kentucky. As we roll through the day, our focus is on the potential for flooding rains before some wraparound winter moves back in late tonight and Tuesday.
Many areas of northern Kentucky picked up a gorgeous snowfall last night, but that turns a slushy today as temps spike just above freezing, making for mainly rain. Speaking of rain, heavy amounts of rain are likely across much of Kentucky through tonight. Flooding and flash flooding will be a good possibility.
The models vary on where to put the heaviest amounts, but a general 1″-3″ rainfall is likely, with locally higher amounts. Here’s the NAM…
All of this precip is happening as a couple of low pressures work across the region through Tuesday. The temp gradient we are working with today is amazing. Check out how close the 60s and 30s get to one another this afternoon and evening before the cold wins out…
With that temp gradient, lots of precipitation can be expected. Watch how the snow line collapses back south into Kentucky overnight and into Tuesday.
The Canadian is similar…

Have a good one and take care.
