Heavy rain continues before a big temp drop

Good Sunday to one and all. To say this weekend has been an ugly one would be an understatement. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms have dropped up to two inches of rain in some areas and we have a lot more to go. This serious case of soggy weather will lead us into a big temp crash and taste of winter tomorrow.

A cold front is stalled out across the state and will lift back to the north late this afternoon. Occasional showers and thunderstorms will be noted along with windy and mild weather. Your regional radar will track all the action:

A strong cold front will sweep in from the west Monday and that will combine with a wave of low pressure to keep the heavy rain going. Check out the additional rain totals from the NAM:

That may be enough to cause some rises on area creeks and streams through Monday.

As the cold front moves through, temps will tank. Readings will drop by some 30 degrees from midnight tonight through Monday afternoon. The cold air is likely to catch the back of the rain and switch it over to a period of light snow. There could be a few spots picking up on a grassy coating. This is the area I’m looking at:

That would be for Monday afternoon and evening. Parts of southeastern Kentucky run the risk of a grassy coating Monday night and Tuesday Morning.

Highs Tuesday will only be in the 30s with a few flurries possible.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
