Tracking a strong cold front across the region

Good Sunday everyone and welcome to a busy weather day across central and eastern Kentucky. A powerful cold front will roll across the region today and bring heavy rain and a temperature plunge. I have you all set to track the front into your hometown.

Torrential rain producing showers and thunderstorms will be along this boundary as it slides in. Parts of western Kentucky continue to be under a Flood Watch today.

Warnings

Central and eastern Kentucky should average 1″-2″ of rain and that could cause some quick rises on creeks and streams. Here’s regional radar to track the heavy rains:

The actual cold front will slam through here this afternoon. Here’s the timing:

Temps ahead of the front will be well into the 60s and then fall some 30 degrees within a few hours of the front passing. Follow the plunge:

Readings by Monday morning will be into the upper 20s and low 30s and the rain could end as a bit of a mix.

That front will stall out to our east and southeast by Tuesday. Additional waves of low pressure will move northeastward along the boundary and will throw moisture back into our region. A wintry mix will be possible into central and eastern Kentucky for Tuesday and Wednesday.

I will have more on that coming later today. Make it a great Sunday and take care.
