Tracking heavy rain and a touch of winter

Good Sunday, everybody. We continue to track the ongoing flooding issues across southern and southeastern Kentucky, as rounds of heavy rain continue. Some wintry weather tries to join in on the fun later tonight and early Monday.

Many areas of the south and southeast picked up on a general 2″-3″ of rain on Saturday, and an additional 1″-2″ will be possible today.  Flooding is a big issue in some areas, with moderate flooding forecast along the Cumberland River near Williamsburg and Barbourville.

If you live in a low-lying or flood prone area, please continue to stay alert to the high water potential.

Here are your heavy rain tracking tools:

Much colder air settles in from northwest to southeast late tonight into early Monday. As another wave of low pressure develops, this could cause some wintry precipitation to develop in our region.

The European Model continues to show the potential for some freezing rain and snow during this time:

The GFS continues to show something similar:

That has the potential to lead to a few travel issues early Monday morning.

The late week system continues to trend colder, with more of a winter weather signal showing up late Friday into Saturday. The European Model is showing a decent swath of snow developing on us:

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
