Good Monday everybody. Our nasty rainstorm rolls on across the bluegrass state and this may end up causing some high water issues later today. This storm will also bring wild temp swings and some light snow before it wraps up on Wednesday.
– The pipeline of rain will continue to hang tough across the state today. Many areas will pick up another 1″-2″ of rain into tonight. This will fall on the 1″-2″ we’ve already received and flooding should become, at least, a local issue.
– Flooding is also likely on some of the rivers across the state. Warnings for parts of the Green, Licking and Ohio Rivers are already out and I expect more to follow.
– Temps today are going to be wild looking with readings in the 50s to near 60 east with upper 30s and low 40s west. Temps in central Kentucky could actually fluctuate several degrees in yo yo fashion today.
– The big upper level low parked to our south today and tonight will produce snow all the way into the deep south. This stuff may reach all the way into northern Louisiana!
– The upper low swings northward into our region on Tuesday and we will see temps drop rapidly from south to north.
– Rain will mix with some snow as the colder air sweeps in from the south. We should see some dry hours thrown into the mix.
– A comma head of rain and snow will then work in Tuesday night behind the departing area of low pressure. This is when a light snowfall can occur in many areas as light snow and flurries carry us into early Wednesday. Here is the GFS snow forecast…
I will have more updates later today. Until then, let’s track today’s weather:
