Rounds of tropical rain move in

Good Thursday, folks. It’s a deep conveyor belt of tropical moisture aimed at the region for the next few days. This juice comes courtesy of Tropical Storm Cindy, and it’s likely to be enough to cause some high water issues through Friday night.

Thursday’s rain will increase from south to north in the afternoon and evening, and it could be heavy at times. The bulk of the heaviest rain is likely to fall across Central and Western Kentucky, with the east seeing very little.

Rounds of heavy rain and storms will then really kick in Friday and Friday night. That’s when what’s left of Cindy crosses into southern Kentucky and northern Tennessee. Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center:

With the heaviest rain falling from Friday and Friday night, that’s when our greatest flood threat will come. Overall, between now and Saturday morning, most of the state will pick up 2 to 4 inches of rain. Locally higher amounts are possible.

Please keep a close eye on area waterways during this time.

The rain will end early Saturday, with better weather coming in during the day. This is a cool pattern taking shape from the weekend into early next week.

I have you all set to track the first round of rain coming at us:

Have a great day and take care.
