Good Sunday, everyone. Showers and thunderstorms continue to blow up across central and eastern Kentucky. These storms have a tropical pipeline from the Gulf of Mexico and that means torrential rainfall is likely. A Flash Flood Watch is out for part of the day across much of the region.
Local high water issues are a good bet across parts of the region today. Today’s rains should boost Lexington higher up on the wettest August ever list. We’re currently in third place, but the top spot is one heavy rain producing thunderstorm away.
Labor Day will see scattered showers and thunderstorms amidst periods of steamy sunshine. Another round of strong storms and torrential rains will sweep our way Monday night into Tuesday. You can see this well on the NAM:
Additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms will likely rumble across Kentucky later in the week. It’s looking more and more like September want’s to do a darn good impersonation of our soggy August.
I guess it’s appropriate to track heavy rains on the last day of the month. Our tracking tools will help you do just that:
