Rounds of heavy rain return

Good Friday, folks. Rounds of heavy rain are back in the bluegrass state and could cause additional high water issues over the next few days. The overall pattern continues to look VERY active through the rest of the month.

A cold front is dropping into Kentucky from the north today, bringing heavy rains and gusty winds. Temps will also take a big tumble as colder air works in for the afternoon and evening hours.

The front bringing the rains will slow down, allowing another low to develop along it. That moves in on Saturday, with a renewed round of heavy rain. This may target some of the same areas of the south and east, hard hit by recent flooding.

The Canadian has some 2″+ amounts in the southeast through Saturday:

The NAM is also showing some 2″+ rains, but centered more along Interstate 64:

Our ground is absolutely waterlogged and our waterways are swollen, so it won’t take much to cause additional flooding problems. If you live in a low-lying or flood prone area, please be alert to the possibility of flooding.

Some of the models are also trying to spit out a slushy snow across the northern half of the state with the Saturday system:

Rounds of showers and storms will also target the region beginning Sunday night and carrying us through much of next week. We will worry about that as we get closer, but the focus is on tracking the current high water potential.

As usual, I have the blog ready for all your tracking needs:

Make it a great Friday and take care.
